The home jersey worn by Scythian Archers during its Hellenic League of Champions campaign.
‘Locker room unrest’ is a common scourge in soccer, but for Scythian Archers, there was no such issue. By assembling a squad of the most capable prison yard workhorses in Athens, the Archers - and their infamous founder Speusinos - achieved a coach’s dream: a dedicated group of players who didn’t have agents, didn’t ask questions, and unquestionably played for the name on the front of the shirt rather than the name on the back.
Despite the selfless play style of the Scythian force, there was a sense that the team’s lack of identifiable star players may see them left behind, with the Athenians a frequent subject of ridicule for planting fellow prisoners in the stands to avoid sketches of the half empty stadium being posted in the town square.
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
