C Team win the 3rd Division Title last night

On a night off without playing or some would say on the beach our C team won the 3rd Division title and became Champions.

This is because Wimborne D needed to win their final match vs Highcliffe C but the match ended in a 2-2 draw. In all the euphoria of the A team’s success this slipped under the radar between the hours of midnight and 5 am!!

The C team have their final match tomorrow night at Southbourne vs their strong C team and I have been asked if there will be a guard of honour..um..um..

We started the season with 2 losses and a draw and then went on a winning run to reach the top spot similar to a classic racehorse in the Derby passing all to eclipse the field and saunter over the line – marvellous!

Great credit to Captain Tarik and the team of Simon Patterson, Simon Fox, Mike Rutter, Richie Smith and a couple of games from yours truly.

Tarik should be feeling very proud as his Dorset League team Poole B also won the 3rd Division at the first time of asking – my word, a Tarik double!

More celebrations to follow!
