This location is on the list of Amusing Locations in Malton

An entry point to Pole Mall and the Clapton Stadium located at [53, 82]. Also the official drinking venue of the Malton Euro 2008 Commission and the official sponsor of the World Cup 2006 tournament.

Oliver Younghusband and the Younghusband Arms

Oliver Younghusband runs the bar and generally adheres to the barter-for-booze policy that most Malton Arms follow. Behind the bar, in one of the storerooms there are four bunkbeds, and a shower (just move the mops out into the hall). Oliver generally lets the beds out on a first come first serve basis, but you can generally "buy" if you have something particularly valueable to trade ("two shells" is the general going-rate for a bed and a locker for the night). Drink prices are written on the chalkboard menu behind the bar in "shells" or other barter equivalents. In addition to running a hostel and bar, Oliver also runs his own microbrewery in the basement of Younghusband. "Oliver's Red Ale" is a hit among locals of West Grayside, so pop in for a pint on your way to Pole Mall! Just make sure you're sober enough to make the jump into parking garage C...

Official World Cup report

June 12, 2010To celebrate the beginning of the South African World Cup, former members and ex-players of the Malton World Cup Committee descended on The Younghusband Arms for a few celebratory pints. As expected proceedings got out of control, the pub got trashed and there were fatalities. The next four weeks are going to see much of the same, with some extra special celebrations when England beat USA tonight.

June 6, 2007 Members of the Malton Euro 2008 Commission spent the afternoon drinking and soaking up the pre-game atmosphere.

July 3rd, 2006
The Malton World Cup Committee, despite the match officials being heavily biased towards the zombies and a player sent off for stomping on a zee head, achieved a 4-4 draw after phenomenal performances from What's Happened, Shiv Jones and Zumm Zero. Ev2 played the goalkeeping position, and made some excellent saves despite having an injured arm, including a penalty as time expired to deny the win.

Some team members planned to escape Clapton Stadium at halftime, but the squad chose to carry on with the game and face certain death against overwhelming odds to make a point. In a bold move at full time though, the team managed to escape amidst the confusion caused by the zombie riot on the field. The current whereabouts of the Malton World Cup Committee is currently unknown, but wherever there a dream of fighting oppression against insurmountable odds, possibly with a football, rest assured they'll be there.

Football FM is back on the air. Tune in to 26.21 for updates and reports by the Malton World Cup Committee live from Clapton Stadium and Pole Mall.

June 28th, 2006
FIFA has deployed the elite STARS Hooligans unit to Clapton Stadium to assist in crowd control and ensure a smooth game on Saturday. The Malton World Cup Committee welcomes this dedicated unit of soldiers, and is looking forward to kicking some zombie heads round the stadium in celebration of the event.

June 28th, 2006
Speaking today at the Malton World Cup Committee's press conference in Clapton Stadium, holding midfielder Zumm Zero called the football campaign a success so far, and pointed to the teams resolve to win the title. "The boys are rested and are now in deep preperations for Saturday's game. We're facing a tough opponent, and are just putting the finishing touches to our set piece defence, tweeking our formation slightly to accommodate some new players and generally making sure we have all the right tools to progress through to the semi-finals." Speaking about the spate of injuries suffered since the win, mostly incurred at the post-match party, and the area in general, Zumm commented: "What's Happened has shrugged off his thigh injury and will be 100% for the game, he's already up and running, putting the time in the gym. Gondo Gondo will be a match day decision. As you've probably seen, ev2 and Brando One have been blasting them away on the practice pitch so, yeah, we're feeling really confident. The ground is looking fantastic, the groundsmen have been working on it for about 5 days straight now, and the guys have even been hanging out at Pole Mall for recreation. They're happy because they can walk around it without getting hassled by roudy fans. The competitions really starting to come together for us." There were no Zombies available for comment.

June 26th, 2006
The second stage of the World Cup took place at Clapton Stadium yesterday, with the Malton World Cup Committee moving through to the second stage quite comfortably. Experimenting with a new lone striker formation, holding midfielder Zumm Zero scored the lone goal, while What's Happened played a remarkable game as the lone striker. Ev2 held the defence together nicely while teen sensation Gondo Gondo was held out the lineup with a virus. Slight technical hitches meant the broadcast was shaky at best, but supporters are now eagerly anticipating next weekends quarter-final fixture. In other news the undeadites explanation for their conduct was rejected by the governing body as the zombies in question were all wearing 'team' uniforms and, if the statement was true, and they had been committed to a fair game, the undeadites would have helped clear the stadium.

June 23rd, 2006
Members of the Malton World Cup Committee laughed off suggestions of unfair play from the Undeadites as they took Clapton Stadium for some light training. Pointing to the fact that the z-boys regularly tried to field 20+ players despite strict FIFA regulations calling for a maximum of 11, MWCC members dismissed the undeads comments as pure bad sportsmanship. "Quite simply, we divided down the number of confirmed kills per side with the number of players and came up with a fair result," said an official for the tournemant. "As for the horde leaving on its own accord, thats open to debate, but we wish them all the best in their future ransacking endeavours."

June 22nd, 2006
Malton World Cup Committee players are enjoying some down time before the next stage of the World Cup kicks off on Sunday at Clapton Stadium. Fans of the Undeadites have been rioting in the suburbs of Stanbury Village and Buttonville since they were unceremoniously dumped out of the competition in the group stages, blaming everything from betting scandals and refereeing decisions to timetable irregularities. "All we're hearing are unfounded and bitter excuses," said one source close to the MWCC, "but the fact of the matter is that they didn't have the pace, the flare or the experience to compete in such a quality competition." Undeadites coaches respond to the |MWCC insinuations that they were disqualified. The horde left on its own accord due to the aforementioned reasons. The Undeadites do not believe that the |MWCC will deem any game a zombie victory despite the number of goals and casualties scored by the undead.

June 20th, 2006: Malton World Cup Committee1-0 Undead
The MWCC fielded a mixed side in this token fixture, with Zumm sitting the game out due to a yellow card and ev2 being replaced by Brando One in the side due to a slight calf injury. What's Happened was replaced just after half-time and Shiv Jones was replaced in the 80th minute as the MWCC headed to an uneventful victory.
+++Undeadite update+++'
After 2 losses, the Undeadites have realised their chances of making it through to the next stage of the World Cup had passed. The zombies coach has been sacked, and the team will now join Saudi Arabia as the worst team in the tournemant.

June 16th, 2006
Malton World Cup Committee win 3-1.
Unbelievable scenes at the stadium last night. Rumours of disharmony in the Undeadites camp were proved founded when the z-boys turned out late for the kick off. Malton World Cup Committee's Strikers What's Happened (3kills) and Shiv Jones (4kills) were rampant the whole match, but the game goes to right winger and newcomer Gondo Gondo, who, despite not having much first team experience, stepped in and scored three clean kills. Central defender Zumm Zero hit one and played an exceptional role in keeping the undead out, while goalkeeper ev2 was untroubled all game, even finding time to conduct in-game interviews. Shiv Jones summed up the game for Soccer FM 26.21 - "We weren't at our best, but we got the win and thats all that counts. We know there's better to come, we know we can play better and its a matter of going back to camp and preparing for Tuesday's game". The captain What's Happened, who was later sighted celebrating in the The Younghusband Arms, hailed Gondo Gondo as the 'future': "What can I say, he's terrific. He's got the whole package; speed, firepower, his defence needs working on but that'll come with experience. Tonight he was in the thick of it and pulled their defence apart. He's the future of this team no doubt." The team is back in camp, resting, before next Tuesday. Bold text
