Never has the team propping up the men's team pyramid had such an eventful season - a name change, a record high number of wins/goals and less than a handful of losses by March.

By the end of the 9s' first game against Old Sils 5s, the team had scored the same number of goals (5) as it managed in 2016/17! Three more victories followed as well as a drubbing against Beeston 8s before the half term crash. Both the 9s and 8s failed to put a team out. It was clear something had to give, RIP 9s.

Step forward the new 8s - amalgamating the regularly featured talents of Croghan, J Boyce, Ough, Perry, L Boyce, Branch, O'Brien, Hunter with club legend Collins, Finegan and Elliott from the 8s as was.

Through the season the team racked up 11 victories against the 4s and 5s of Stone, Finchfield, two Old Wulfs sides, Lichfield and Telford and Wrekin; tempered by 5 draws, 3 defeats and a forfeit. Finishing 4th in the league.

20 goals from Elliott and 15 from Hunter the team was underpinned by the tirelessness of L Boyce, the ever improving Perry and a calm and assured J Boyce as well as some stoutly defended set pieces and one or two short corner drills. Next season we aim to keep our team spirit and sense of adventure but learn to close out games more easily with just the occasional 5-4 victory or 3-3!
