Season ends

27 May 2015

“This is the way the season ends
Not with a win but a blunder.”

As TS Eliot didn’t quite put it.

It was distinctly fin-de-saison and off-form for our little band of warriors when they played Moortown in the Mini League on 27 May. At the end, all three fessed up to unforced blunders they should not have made. The result: the only points collected were those awarded by the handicap system.

But the final position in the Mini league table was much more satisfactory. We ended the season in 9th place out of 12 teams, ahead of Rose Forgrove M4, Alwoodley M2 and Leeds M2.

Pretty good for our first season.
