Early Season Review

31/10/15

‚ÄčThe Season is now well under way , with all 3 teams having played at least 4 games each . At the time of writing , the 365's were sitting 2nd in Division 2 , the Trojans were 2nd ( on points difference only ) in Division 3 , and the Spartans were lying 3rd in Division 4 . In addition , the 365's have progressed to the Semi Finals of the Knock Out Cup , where they face South Tyneside away .

All the new players have integrated well , with the Spartans having the biggest influx of personnel with a big influence of ex Phoenix players , and Head Coach Paul Nilsen is moulding them into a very competitive unit indeed , assisted by Liam Hall and Ross Doolan . The Trojans are similar to last season ( with just a couple of newbies ) , and they still have that "band of brothers " mentality forged last season , under the tutelage of Rob Mitchison , assisted by Andrew Saxelby . The 365's have benefitted from the experience of ex Div 1 player , Alastair Toole , as well as eve of season signing Terry Chen , and are playing well in a tough division.

After a fairly disappointing start to the season , in which we collectively lost our first 5 games , we then embarked on a 7 game winning streak , before the Vipers ended the Spartans interest in the Cup . The Trojans got things going again , with an impressive win against the Churchill Cobras.

Next week see's all 3 teams in league action, with a game each , the Spartans at home on Tuesday , 365's away on Wednesday , and the Trojans at home Thursday .

Get along and support if you can , the players really do appreciate it!
