In 1995 the league grew again with the addition of 3 more managers. Peter Crockford, Regan Peggs and Andrew Prior joined the previous season's nine managers for auction three, hosted inside the Bungay Boathouse Scout H.Q. on an evening after school.

At the auction, Orange Squash United manager Adam Pritchard would set a new SFP record by splashing £7.2m on Alan Shearer. Only months later he would swap him for Les Ferdiand with Ross Peggs.

Defence of Baynes's SFP title didn't start well. Butt Kickers found themselves in the unfamiliar position of 10th on the openeing day, with new team Crockford's Crackers fastest out of the traps. Magicmen would go on to take pole position, before short two week stint on top of the pile for Bushall and followed by a seven week stay, including a Christmas number one for Wigger's Sex Gods. But on 13 January Butt Kickers resumed their place at the top of the league and would remain so all the way through to May to claim their second SFP title in a row.

History was made during February 1996 when Orange Squash United again set a new record, this time with the purchase of Faustino Asprillia for £32.1m, would would go on to score 23 points.

In the Inter League Cup, Bushall made the final, representing the SFP against St James Fantasy League opposition. Unfortaunately Bushall would finish runners up to Joe Hadingham's Ultimate Champions.

The 1995/96 season was the first to include the top 3 from both leagues competing in a 6 week European Super League. Bushall would go on to claim this title, and their first honour.

For the SFP, there was two new domestic competitions to add to the honours table, both scooped by the dominant Butt Kickers. The first SFP 5ASide Cup would finish in a two legged 33:33 draw between Bushall and Butt Kickers, but Baynes would tale the replay 16-7. In the FFA Cup, Ross's complicated scoring system would see Butt Kickers pip Bushall once again, giving Baynes a domestic treble.

SEASON FORM
SFP TAPE

The Chairman was always a big maker of his own mix tapes during the 90s, and his two passions met in 1995 with the birth of the first Fantasy Football tape.
All managers were interviewed using a portable tape recorder and microphone, and on the tape their chosen team song was played after their interview.

Here they are again, fully digitally versions with original tape hiss and imperfections intact. They are available to listen to online, or as a complete download, with album artwork.

On the first tape, with the Chairman and his brother having properly discovered Queen for the first time (through their 'Live At Wembley 86' double tape album and Greatest Hits CD), the tape featured a lot of Queen songs. Hopefully, not a bad thing?

Also, the rather dramatic opening introduction was done by the chairman putting the Star Wars theme on full blast on his parents CD HiFi and then standing on the back of the sofa with the afore mentioned tape recorder, moving the microphone nearer of further away from the speaker, which was on top of a book case. How times have changed …
