The club suffered through the loss of many younger members of the team through school and college exams. Some of our stars were on duty elsewhere or injured, but nine faithful souls did their best to fulfill the fixture and finished in 6th place. The only way from here is up, so we trust we can improve over the remaining three matches beginning at Aberdeen on 12 June. Send out the rallying call!
Martin Hayes set a captain's example as top scorer with 37 points including two A string second places. Ciaran Johnson, our young debutant thrower, gained 26, while at the other end of the age band ever reliable Gerry Farrell got 25. Apart from Ciaran we welcomed four other debutants to the League, Ramesh Sapkota, John Scanlan, Tim Chan, Ewan Hoy.
Thanks as usual to the club officials who are so vital to our participation in the League, Hugh and Sheila Baillie and Joe Doyle and also to parents and supporters who came to cheer on the team.
