Well, this is a concept I made months ago in bigfooty forum (you can call me JohnFromBrazil or JFB, when there), and thought: "why not post it in CCSLC"? This is the Battle of the Bay. [ Footy is a recent sport in Alice Bay. Australian Soldiers brought some balls to play in vacations during the 2nd World War and the locals played with they. The Southport base was deactivated in 1946, but the Footy stayed. The Southport Football League started with 4 teams in 1949, all with VFL team names and jumpers. Southport Bombers, Bay District Magpies, Carson Tigers and Southport Saints. The popularity of sport increased and in 1955 three teams of Edellion and City of Alice Bay (Edellion Stars, Edellion Blues and Alice Bay Guardians) joined the league, and the league was renamed Alice Bay Football League. The number of teams continued to increase without much control over the finances, and in 1967, a major economic crisis has caused many teams to merge. The league was left with only eight teams (number that continues today) Nowadays, the major rivalry in the Bay League (renamed to Bay League in 2003) is between Southport Mariners and Edellion Pirates. These teams dispute, every year, a special trophy, "The Gold Sword", in an event called "Battle of the Bay".
