Hoover Vacuum Keeners is an American football club from Missouri.

In the five years of its existence, it has won three Division VI titles and currently resides in Division V.

History

Formation

The club currently known as the Hoover Vacuum Keeners came into existence during season 19 as the Ohio Apaches. The ten seasons of the Apaches saw no more achievement than a runner-up finish in season 22 and zero USA Cup wins.

Current management took over in 2006 in the midst of season 29, and with new leadership quickly began climbing the ranks of Division VI. In three short years of building, HVK topped the table of VI.511; but quickly took a step backwards due to a lack of team-building and a couple of unfortunate losses. Season 33 brought the first USA Cup win, but it took until the magical season 35, where HVK completed a perfect season and a promotion to Division V.

Unfortunately, HVK promoted into one of the toughest Division V leagues in the country, and they were quickly demoted after a sixth-place finish and a lost qualifying match. After embracing keeper training and bringing a new manager onto the club, HVK followed up two straight seasons of appearances in the third round of the USA Cup with a third Division VI title in season 38 by winning VI.177.

Again promoted into a very difficult Division V league, HVK found a way to stay up with a late-season push and a won qualifier to remain in V.87 last season, and currently resides in the top four during the current table.

Youth Acadamy

Stockwood Wanders Youth Acadamy is represented by the Gas Youth Squad (due to former name of Bristol Rovers BAZ). The Gas Youth Squad have been playing in the League of Gentleboys which the league is currently in its 9th season. However due to cost cutting within the club the Gas Youth Squad will no longer be part of Stockwood Wanders. No players from the youth acadamy have made a major impact when being promoted into the first team setup leaving them either to be sold or fired.

At the end of season 40 the club decided to depart with the Gas Youth Squad due to financial issues.

Location Bristol, England
Opened August 24, 2009
Tenants Stockwood Wanders (2009 - Present)
Capacity 16,400

Until recently Stockwood Wanders were playing at the City of Bristol stadium which was a council owned stadium located in Brislington, Bristol aprox 2 miles away from Stockwood. This was because there wasn't any league standard stadiums in the suburban area of Stockwood. The plans to build a all seater stadium in Stockwood were submitted to the council in 2007 which were accepted. Construction work was finished in 2009 and was announced that the stadium will be ready to be used for season 40. The stadium was named Scotland Lane as this is the road that runs beside the stadium. The stadium holds 16,400 which can be expanded if nessesary. When the season 40 campaign kicks of it will be the first time that Stockwood Wanders will play in Stockwood since formation.
