There is surely a reason that the mens 2nd team is seen as the glamour team to play for…any suggestions on postcards welcomed. We can field a team of 4 with a combined age of about 260 on occasions and still give them a good run for their money.
The season (which consisted of 6 matches) started quite badly really and we were at the wrong end of the league with 2 heavy defeats by teams who chose to play young stars, coaches and club champions which did seem a little unfair. However, we put together a run of three consecutive 4-0 wins and yesterday a tough draw to come 2nd in the league overall due to a slightly arcane (to me anyway) scoring system which worked to our advantage. Promotion to the dizzy heights of the 8th division (west) looms!
A great effort from all the chaps who played and of course their coaches, agents, managers and support/bar staff. Talent and athleticism is often rewarded as is simply getting the ball back over the net and in the white lines, luckily for us!
