B-team's hit for 46.


A SUNDAY league football team have been beaten 46-2, the biggest defeat in British soccer history.

Charlton B could only field nine players in their match with Orchard Park.

Every player on the opposing side, including the goalie, scored. Tony Randle, who got 14, said: "We felt a bit sorry for them after the first dozen."

Wally Owst, 74, secretary of the Hull Sunday Football League Premier Division in East Yorkshire, said: "I haven't ever seen a scoreline like it."

Charlton B have let in 152 goals this season, and lost 16-0, 34-1 and 21-1 prior to the latest drubbing.
