Trivia: The "Losingest" National Soccer Team in History

The Sark National Football Team, nicknamed "The Bad Lions" is the "losingest" national soccer team in history.

The Sark national football team represented the island of Sark in the International Island Games Association (Island Games 2003). The team lost every match by 15 goals or more, scored no goal, and had a total of 70 goals scored against it in just 4 matches.

The team's coach Shane Moon summed up as such:

"It was a special occasion for our lads to enter the tournament. They will probably never do this again in their lifetimes." (Source)

I was unaware that Sark was considered to be not a part of England.

Of interest to some perhaps, that it was the setting for Mervyn Peake's novel "Mr.Pye".

Who when he is good grows angels wings, and when bad, a devils horns.

A nifty conceit, and also a rather splendid tv series from the 80s starring Derek Jacobi as out eponymous hero.
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
