|Full name||The Infamous Leopards|
At February 20th 2005, Rob's jongens was founded. They started right after the second league matches in season 14. Rob's jongens were officially recognised by the HFA and were allowed to replace an ownerless team in X.982. The first season was a huge learning experience for this team. Nevertheless Rob's jongens came in 4th. After this season "The jongens" won 3 championships in a row, which brought the team to 7th division.
Rob's jongens finished at the 7th place and relegated back to 8th division. The team has gained a lot of experience in 7th division and easily won their league and gained promotion to 7th division.After the team has won his 4th championship, the manager decided to change the team name to Teachers Chalk.
Teachers Chalk started in VII.858 after they just won their 8th division. With only 1 match to go, Teachers Chalk was still in the race for the title. After losing the last match, Teachers Chalk finished 3rd. In the next season the road to the championship was very easy for Teachers Chalk.
In 6th division the impossible happened and Teachers Chalk won a championship again! While just missing direct promotion, the team had to play a qualifier against FC Bajadas and won!
In season 23 Teachers Chalk came in a very difficult league and only managed to win 2 matches. They relegated back to 6th division. After this season the team name was again changed. The new (and current) team name was The Infamous Leopards.
The Infamous Leopards
The Infamous Leopards won VI.461 in their first season and they promoted directly back to 5th division. The first season in V.118 was expected to be a difficult season. And indeed, The Infamous Leopards had to fight against relegation. They ended up in sixth place and won the qualifier against de Karre United. Their second season in V.118 was supposed to be more easy, but it wasn't. TIL was in the lower regions of the league all season long and couldn't do anything to prevent the team from relegating back to sixth division for the second time. All players were sold and coach IJsbrand Dooms bought a complete new team for division six.
In the first season in VI.778, the players had some trouble finding eachother. This resulted in an early cup knock-out and a seventh place after 5 weeks of competition. TIL fought back and after a very exciting season they finished third! The second season in VI.778 TIL did a great job. TIL took the lead in round 4 and kept that position for 7 weeks. Then the team started to become nervous and lost their first position in round 12, took it back in round 13 and lost it again in the final round 14. TIL fought a great battle with Laing's Nek United, but lost it in the final round. TIL reached the fourth round of the KNVB Beker. Last season, the third season in VI.778, was a very succesfull season for TIL. TIL reached the seventh round of the national cup, beating 3 higher ranked opponents. TIL only suffered one loss in their league and won their league quite easy with a gap of 13 point to number 2, Laing's Nek United. This resulted in auto-promoting to division five.
Next season TIL will play in V.241. With non-relegation as main goal.
