Welcome on board, though my contribution won't be what you're looking for.

While I have some friends in Southend, I live in Londonderry, Northern Ireland.

Enjoy the forum!

Thanks for the welcome. I currently have bids on e-bay for a subbeuteo box set, But think subbeuteo . com may be better. What do you think. When i get box set iam going to build staduim out of wood. Then of course it will be roots hall, home of southend Very Happy Its really great that people still have great interest in this game, ive played many pc games etc, but you carnt beat subbeuteo. Never realised subbueteo still going till i looked on e-bay.

You've re-discovered the game pretty much how I did. And you're right, it's great that it's still alive and flicking.

Try and make a Lionhearts gig sometime. They're every six weeks or so. Games are played on baize, using the old style figures / bases. Most players travel a distance to attend, and the location is pretty central for that purpose - usually Bracknell.

Thank you for both comments above. Going to build a staduim as well. Shame there no clubs in the southend area. Where i live in southend there is a community hall that belongs to the housing. May see if can use it. Who knows maybe able to arange a monthly competition, but would need the equitment etc, and most of all the interest.

we have the south england lionhearts old subbuteo club based in bracknell,berks and in fact we have one member (fingers on here) who makes the trip for nearly every meet from southend area to bracknell. a couple of the other members are also making the trip from essex too tomorrow which is our next meet.

we dont always play in bracknell (at their FC) and in october in fact we were at fingers house in southend. we have members in essex,berkshire,middlesex,hampshire and other home counties.

the next meet,if its of interest to you,will be late february.

or if you can make tomorrow then you are welcome but i need to know today.

match/venue fee is £5.

welcome to the forum too

cheers

Thanks everyone for help and advice, ive just brought a subbuteo box set, 1980 club edition. Would love to come to your events, Feburary would be fantastic, but would be gratefull for a lift, would help towards petrol. Also what kind of team can i use in your competitions, Is it LW, not sure. Very Happy
