Another season has passed and the fans have spoken. Ricardo “The Third Degree Bunsen” Berna is this years Hometown Hero Winner. Having been trained by none other than David “Fat” Lucas during his first year as keeper Berna had an amazing year.
For nearly the first 1/3 of the season Berna held his opponets to zero goals. After that most teams found it hard to get more than one goal past him. Much like this mentor Berna will win his Hometown hero spot just as he is exiting the team. Originally there was no plan to replace Berna and he would have been going into his 3rd season with Swindon Town but during the off season he choose to pursue another club in a place that spoke his native tongue.
Just before his departure from Swindon Town we had a chance to catch up with him and ask him a few questions.
STG:Ricardo, how does it feel to be this years Hometown Hero winner?
Berna:My time with Swindon Town under Coach Brothers has been one that I will never forget. Between him and Lucas I learned so much. As many of you know I have had a bit of a sorted past and it was great for Coach and the front office to take a chance on me.
STG:What do you think about your nickname?
Berna:Considering this teams propensity in giving nicknames and what my last name is it is a very natural conclusion. I was very found of my goals being rated on a scale of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd degree burns. It was quite amusing when watching the tape afterwards.
STG:Where there any games that stood out for you during the season?
Berna:Well as the keeper every game is important. I think the game that stood out for me the most was my first home game. It was amazing to see the support of the County Ground. There was a lot of talk of how much support game from the fans in the club. I think I was deaf for nearly the entire first game.
STG:Now you have made the choise to move on what do you think you are going to miss the most?
Berna:The team, the fans are great and they made me feel very welcome even though I was replacing their beloved Lucas. But, the team has really been there for me and helped me feel welcome and get up to speed. With the language barrier that I had at the biegining of my first season they really helped.
STG:Is there any parting words you have for the club or the fans?
Berna:I am going to miss this town. The swoodilypooprs are an amazing group of fans and the guys on the team. I have been playing professional football for about 10 years now and I have never been part of a club like this one.
And with that we congradulate Ricardo “Bunsen” Berna one more time and wish him good luck with his new team.
He’s big he’s tall, He is also short and small. He is ONE SIZE FITZ HALL!!
He is also this seasons HOME TOWN HERO!!
This was a particularly trying season for the Swoodilypoopers. With the majority of their games ending in a nil-nil draw and before we talk about Fitz Hall directly it is worth mentioning how well the team actually did this year. With many of the team members playing well above their skill level the Swoodilypoopers were able to remain in the Premier League.
Fitz Hall started with Swindon Town shortly after Coach Brothers started coaching the team. He quickly rose to prominence and earned his nickname by being one of those clutch players who could be used in many situations, from heading in a goal off a corner kick or making the defense of the goal look easy.
Its hard to deny the the contributions Hall made to the team this year considering that there was one point about two-thirds through the season where the Swoodilypoopers looked like they might be facing relegation back down to the Championship League its because of Hall’s hustle and passion that they remain for another year.
We also had a chance to sit down with One Size and ask him a few questions. Here is how it went.
