Manchester League December 2017 — 5 Comments

  1. Whilst I stand by my criticisms – which apply to me as well – there’s no doubt that the standard of players the league is attracting is constantly improving and, as a consequence, so are team performances. What was good enough to be ‘there or thereabouts’ even 12 months ago isn’t now, as evidenced by our results in the last 2 leagues, albeit with a weakened squad this session.

    By contrast we have had no new players since the Over 60s’ league started and lost our most influential player, and captain, Brian Coll to long term injury before the Autumn league started.

    With an average age in the mid-60s we have an uphill battle to get back to/near the top but we should seek to improve our performances in our internal sessions and hope some ‘new blood’ comes along quickly!

    • Derek, we do have some new blood with three more of our members eligible next year – Dave Hardy, Ian Parker in April and Stuart Greaves for the Autumn league. Good mobility in all three and some firepower from Ian and Stuart.
