The start to our 2018 Summer season was fraught with availability difficulties and weather problems resulting in most Match 1 fixtures having to be rescheduled and many players having to play in 4 or 5 matches in order to catch up. No problem for our youngsters, like John O’Connell and Steve Roberts, but lots of players picked up tennis elbow problems with which they’ve bravely battled on.
Most subsequent matches have progressed smoothly thanks to the fantastic Summery weather we’ve had, however, both our 3rd and 4th teams have felt the knock on effects of limited availability all season. Hopefully that will soon improve as our current 6th position in the table (at match 9) still leaves all to play for in the remaining fixtures.Come on 3rds !!!
We have won 4 of our 9 matches and recorded fabulous wins. In particular beating Heswall very convincingly and Alderley. Further impressive wins against Oxton and Bertram leave us just below mid-table and poised to mop up points on the return games.
It has been great to see the commitment and determination displayed already from every one of our players and hugely exciting to continue with the remains of the season and see how high we can finish.
