The division 6 table at the completion of all our matches
I would like to start by saying thank you to everyone who’s supported me through my first season as Centeral Sevens Captain. Thats from people who have played to people just asking how we’ve been getting on, the support has been brilliant – thank you!
This was our first season and so we began in division six, with fellow new teams Chiltern Forest, Silverstone B and Naunton Downes all joining Kirtlington blue in the league.
The season started very brightly with a great away win at Naunton Downes followed by a thrashing of Kirtlington at home, before being humbled with an unlucky defeat away at Chiltern Forest. Back-to-back wins against Naunton Downes and Kirtlington at home got the title challenge back on track.
A shock away defeat away at Kirtlington made it look as if the title had slipped away from us but they then did us a favour by also beating Chiltern Forest at home. An away win against Silverstone then left us with a title deciding match at home to Chiltern Forest on Sunday 6th October.
At 3-3, thanks to wins from Michael Tippet, Scott Willoughby and Marc Wharton, the match was in the balance. But big Neal Oxendale won his game on the last 2 up to give us the win and the league title. What a brilliant effort and fantastic achievement from all the men to come out with the title in our first season.
Scott Willoughby was our top points scorer with a very impressive five wins from five games. Thank you to everyone who played and here’s looking forward to next season.
