Britain's worst football team with midfielder, 73, conceded 200 goals
We’ve been crowned Britain’s worst football team: Our midfielder is 73, our winger has ‘legs like Bambi’ and we conceded 200 goals in a season – but despite the knockbacks we return every week
- Cwm Albion FC in the Swansea Senior League lost all 22 of their games last year
- Team includes goalkeeper Jamie MacDonald with no clean sheets in ten years
This is the worst football team in Britain, conceding 200 goals last season with a goalkeeper who has not kept a clean sheet for a decade and a pensioner in midfield.
Cwm Albion FC in the Swansea Senior League have a 100-year-old history but have fallen on hard times, getting a battering each week.
The club lost all 22 of their games last year – and had a mammoth minus 191 goal difference, conceding 200 goals.
The team includes goalkeeper Jamie MacDonald, who has never had a clean sheet in his ten years with the club, and veteran midfielder John Rees who is still playing aged 73.

The side, who play in the Swansea Senior League, have now been crowned Britain’s ‘Best Worst Team’ in a competition by Specsavers.
But despite their bleak results, manager Dan Gill, said his players were fully committed to the team.
He said: ‘Despite the knock backs, each week we turn up and put our hearts into every game, no matter the scoreline – and we lost 10-0 the other day, so that says a lot.
‘I’ve been involved with the club since I was 16 and my dad, Colin, has been part of Cwm Albion for more than 50 years. We really are a family.’

Other players in the team include winger Shane Prior, who says he has ‘legs like Bambi’, and holding midfielder Paul DiMarco, who will ‘have a nose bleed’ if he goes too far up the pitch.
The team also features two sets of father and son duos playing together.
For winning the competition, the club will have a training session with a former Premier League star who is yet to be revealed.
Lisa Hale, head of consumer communications at Specsavers, said: ‘It’s obvious how passionate Cwm Albion are about the game, so really can’t wait to get behind them and hopefully with our support they will have a victory to celebrate soon.’
