1st Team Report
With 3 wins and 4 losses, it has been a tough opening to the season for the 1sts seeing us one place above the relegation zone. In a strong division 4, we have picked up wins against the teams around us in the table and apart from a 19-0 whitewash against RAC 1 (expected table toppers), we have suffered narrow defeats to everyone else.
Comfortably the first half MVP with an 86% win ratio is Dan Clarke. You’d expect nothing less from our club champ whose presence at #1 will be sorely missed as he departs to join Surbiton for the second half of the season. Thanks for your services Dan and don’t be shy to return!
A decent first half for Mike Stewart as well, winning 57% of his matches. The rest of us have struggled in this tough division and an increase in form is required for Ant, Tim and Glenn to have a positive impact on results going forward.
Thanks go to Simon Lane, Harold Groothede and Karl Newland for stepping in when we’ve been short of players.
Goes without saying that the 2nd half is going to be tough without Dan but if we continue to beat those near us in the table, we have a good chance of surviving division 4.
