FIFA blazers are being blamed for the low turn out at the Kenna’s Cup draw in London, because they held the World Cup draw in Russia six days later.
Just three people, including the Kenna League chairman and former Bramble player Eric Djemba-Djemba, attended the Krakow Cup draw two weeks ago in the Pressure Drop brewery in Tottenham.
“We invited the cream of world football society – Maradona, Gordon Banks, Fabio Cannavaro and the like, the media and Zurich blazers but they turned us all down to get to the fleshpots of Moscow a week early,” said a downcast Kenna chairman to no journalists outside the brewery on the Lockwood Industrial Park.

Sources at Kenna HQ say in the end the chairman got desperate and called former Bramble players to drum up some numbers.
“Christophe Berra had a crucial home game for Hearts against Hamilton Academical, Adam Johnson was otherwise detained and Eric Djemba-Djemba only showed up to demand £20k in cash to pay off some loan sharks,” said the Kenna deep throat.
Nevertheless, the Krakow Cup draw went ahead with holders AJFC drawn into six-team group C. The first fixtures take place this weekend.
