Thanks to all involved in this match and throughout the whole MCOL season. Due to a stomach bug I was feeling very fragile yesterday, so special thanks to Chris for playing as super-sub at very short notice with a partner he has never met and only 5 minutes system discussion on the phone before the game. Also thanks need to go to the Staffs and Shropshire team who gave considerable help with match setup and were very friendly throughout. ..........

Season 3 of the Virtual League has now been completed and all those who participated enjoyed their matches. Congratulations to The Woldies who finished well ahead of second equal placed Rueful Rabbits and The Iron Men in Division 1, and to Revolution, closely followed by Lazy Bones in Division 2. Thanks to all those players who entered the event. Results can be seen HERE. We shall now take a break from the league and perhaps consider re-starting again in the Autumn.
