Today we play in the League for the first time ever.

We've got 3 matches. 10.15 against Brighton, 11.30 against Stoke Mandeville and 2pm against Southampton.

We are playing at Northcroft Leisure Centre in Newbury so at least it wasn't a long journey :grin: :grin: :grin:

Ok this is a rough idea of the Division 3 table

3 points for a win
1 point for a loss
0 points for a forfeit

1 Stoke Mandeville Maulers Won 3 Lost 0 GF 124 GA 42 9pts (+82)
2 The Dorset Destroyers Won 2 Lost 1 GF71 GA89 7pts (-18)
3 The Hammerheads Won 1 Lost 2 GF 64 GA88 5pts (-24)
4 Brighton Buccaneers Won 0 Lost 3 GF51 GA91 3pts (-40)

So we ended up in 2nd place at the end of our very first season, which considering at the beginning we didn't have a whole team available to play.

But today we had the rather extraordinary announcement that we are going to be playing Team GB Invictus Squad on Sunday July 2nd in Poole :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin:

Good work Nick.

You have let in a lot of goals this season but to finish 2nd on a -80 Goal Diffference ( :shock: ) is to be commended.
