The team has made a great start to its 2018 campaign, currently 2nd in the league with 4 wins and 1 loss. We have a strong squad including Dave Challiner, George Watts, Arthur Cooper, Mace Abedin, Simon Birchall and to a lesser extent, Steve Roberts, Mark Davies, John O’Connell, Ian Taylor and finally Ian Fitzpatrick who has often been found sadly lacking on the court, however the quality of his egg sandwiches is a compensating factor!
We look forward to the second half of the season with optimism, where possible we will be adopting a ruthless selection policy, excluding the aged and injury prone middle order in favour of younger more talented players! Consideration will obviously have to be given to the players’ contribution to the after match spread.
The top two teams are well clear in the league, so the league title will probably be decided by the result of our match against league leaders Cheshire Oaks.
