Premier League in a Day takes place on the 17th March at the FDC in Norwich; John Luxon from the South West region for Anglian Home Improvements, is setting up a team to play as Liverpool.
The event is currently in its infancy, but the rivalry between the regions is hotting up, especially between Leon Jenks’ Stoke City team, who came out Premier League in a Day winners 2 years ago, and Luxon’s Liverpool team who were runners up playing as Fulham.
When I spoke to John yesterday he didn’t tell me much about his tactics or team, but is well and truly focused on winning the title this year! Here is what he had to say;
“Liverpool have not won the Premiership for over two decades, but this will change next month when the mighty South West region comes to Norwich to take home the Premier League in a Day trophy.”
“We lost out to Leon Jenks’s Stoke team, finishing second last time and lessons have since been learnt, mistakes rectified, and a significantly stronger squad will all ensure we are victorious,” he continued.
Luxon then directed this comment to Jenks and his Stoke team, “Enjoy your trophy while it lasts Jenksy, the South West are coming to claim it and there are two things you can do about it…Nothing and like it.”
