Quiz – Cryptic Football Teams No1

If you are a fan of soccer teasers and cryptic football clues that can be answered with a little thought, I have something just for you. I have compiled a cryptic quiz (in three parts) of major (and some minor) football teams from across the UK and the simple question to you is can you answer the questions from the strange sentences and definitions given? Part One has 50 questions below with every answer a UK football team from either the Premier League, Football League, Scottish, Irish, Welsh & Non-Leagues, likewise Part Two which can be found here is slightly tougher and once you’ve conquered the first couple of parts you can move on to Part Three which is here for you to enjoy.

Please note you will need to know about the clubs in UK football at all levels to be able to answer these questions.
