Yes, well done Paddy/Buncranaboy on that last one. I had a guess lined up if yours wasn't correct and overlooked Ian Botham and he met all the criteria. Perhaps I will use that one if I ever win again.

Anyway- Is it a club we are after ?

Can I put an obituary up on this thread, that won't be frowned upon by the Obits police?

Assuming the answer is yes

Nothing to do with football; but

Joe O'Donnell - died yesterday morning and being mourned in Lyme since - ex-landlord of The Ship(Coombe Street) and owner of The Volunteer (Broad Street). Spot on Landlord, many happy memories of drinking 'Donegal Bitter'.
He remembered everybodies name and was known by everybody. No fake Irish craic - 100% genuine and a disappearing phenomenon - a family owned pub. sad day.

And my guess is Bunyodkor.

Not really, maybe crown prince of Brunei used to be goalkeeper and team currently banned from matches due to government inteference. Clues just tied in and good questions asked by GD and TP to confirm. Also some countries were out of the equation as they did not have grounds over 25000 spectators and one or two leagues had very few teams where there name starts with A-M

I found them interesting as they played in the Brunei League until 2005. They then decided to move to Malaysian football and won promotion at the first attempt to the Malaysian Premier League. In 2009 they decided to move country again and opted for the S-League in Singapore whenere they promptly won the league cup. Despite being well-placed and drawing more than double the average gate of the next best-supported club,FIFA had enough of their wanderings and having played 28 games of the 33-game season they were booted out and record expunged with FIFA now banning all Brunei (which is an independent part of Borneo, by the way) clubs from participating in other countries leagues (just because they can afford to! - they are owned by the Crown Prince of Brunei).

Well done Chris, and well before #1941 !
