Well what a great end to the season! The E team blew away the opposition last night in the final of the Phillips Cup. the team was Big Sam, Stuart (play it straight) Grice, JoshTall Man Robinson, Lucy (Erik) Halsall, Katie(tango) Burgess, Lily(Jelly dance) Simmons. However credit should also go to the people who played valuable parts in getting us to that stage Charlotte Sainsburys, Little Sam, and Alex(hop along) Heyes. well done everyone undefeated since Christmas and a trophy to boot!!
… somebody sent me some Boxing Day photos. Thanks Steve!

Congratulations to the 3rd team for taking the division 3 title. They beat MGS E 10-8 in their last fixture of the season, and the 3 points were just enough to take them to the top of D3. That follows on from the 4th division title last year.
Congratulations to the 1st team for becoming D1 champions. They beat MGS A 12-6 on Wednesday to complete the season unbeaten and finish top of the division.
We are organizing a club night out on Friday the 16th of April. The plan is to have something to eat in Leyland (Isolabella??) then either go out for a few drinks in Leyland or get on the train and head in to Preston. Let me (or Helen) know if you are interested ASAP so we can get an idea of numbers and book some tables.
Team : Daz, Graham, Colin, Jane, Jean, Helen
Result : Win 17-1
Definitely an end of season fixture with the opposition turning out with 5 players. The result gets us up to 3rd for now. Helen and Jane were the only players to play 6 games, and both won all 6.
Thanks to all the players who have turned out for me this season:
Jane, Janet, Jean, Helen P, Charlotte H, Helen R, Laura, Lucy H, Charlotte S, Katie, Lily, Daz, Graham, Paul W, Sam P and Dave M.
As you can see we have had quite a mixture of players during the season, so it has been a really good club effort to finish as far up Division 5 as we did. Jane and Daz have been our best players through the season, and Janet was going great guns until she had to stop playing just before Christmas. HP gave us a great lift in the New Year and nearly helped us to sneak second place but it was not to be.
The cup was a non-starter as our E-Team done us by 7 points in the first round, and that was after we nicked their best lady. They better win on Thursday or there will be trouble!
Overall an enjoyable season, and I hope everyone who got roped in to play for the D Team enjoyed it as well.
