How did the worst team in Australia go this week?

UPDATE: Kilburn’s season from hell came to a somewhat fitting close last Saturday with a 279 point loss to Modbury.

In the Chics’ 16 matches in 2014, their combined losing margin was 4962 points at an average of 310.13 per match. Their average score per match was 9 points.

The biggest loss for the season came in Round 3 to Pembroke OS where they lost 67.35 (437) to 1 behind with Pembroke OS having 16 individual goalkickers including 23 for a player named T.Evans. Their best performance came in Round 14 against Salisbury, which was a 207 point loss (albeit in very soggy conditions).

While we have had some fun at Kilburn’s expense this year, we would like to pay tribute to the players who consistently turned out for the Chics week after week. Those with less fortitude and loyalty would have abandoned their club many weeks ago, but these players have stuck tough with their mates and seen this extraordinary season through. We wish the Kilburn Football Club the best in the years ahead, which mercifully will be in a lower division of the SAAFL.

ORIGINAL: Playing out of Division 3 of the South Australian Amateur Football League (SAAFL), Kilburn are having one of the worst seasons you are ever likely to see.

After eighteen rounds, the ‘Chics’ find themselves winless with a percentage of 2.74.

According to Adelaide Now, a player exodus occurred at the end of 2013 after some players were not paid in full. This left the club struggling to find replacement players who have mostly come from country leagues.

The club has vowed to remain in Division 3, despite a league push to have them demoted.
