Mixed results at hot, first SWAL Match!
In the first South-West League match staged at the Exeter Arena on Sunday, May 6th, we enjoyed hot, dry sunshine with almost no wind, except when a ‘dust devil’ sucked a tent and put clothes in the trees! A poor participation from some age-groups was disappointing and had a serious effect on team results. This is a League where we won three times in four years, but last year – after a weak start – we were back in 4th of the 11 teams, then combined in one division. This year that division is of 12 teams, meaning four harder matches!
