Final S.S.S. Index (2002-2022)

Dearest Friends, 

The end of two decades of frivolous nonsensical fun is finally upon us. It having been four years since your friendly bookie last catalogued the various chapters under which we convened, he'll now gladly present the last index covering the full scope of the project. 

These are the tourneys we shared together; the times of love, laughter, and friendships reclaimed under the banner of humanity's greatest invention, football. A closing address from the bookie shall come a little later today. 

All those who participated in the undertaking at some point in some way all of these years, know full well that they have the bookie's eternal love and gratitude for coming along on the journey. These twenty years and thirty chapters have all been for you.
