Happy 2013 from me, and welcome to the second half of the season, with the Ladies' 1sts and Men's 3rds already showing the way with triumphs in Cup (5-2) and mid season friendly (8-2) respectively. So what is the plan for the rest of the season?
…Keep calm and carry on winning. In slightly more detail:
Ladies' 1sts - remain 4th in Camb Premier League, just 5 points behind the leaders
Two tough games coming up against high-flying Rutland and Newmarket will test the mettle. We hoped for mid-table respectability this season; finishing 4th or higher is within our grasp.
Ladies' 2nds - 8th in Camb Div 1
Next games are against beatable local rivals Cambridge City. We need the points, and maximum availability of the squad for the run in.
Men's 1sts - 3rd in Eastern League 3NW
Next up Ely, then the big one - 1sts vs 2nds. Promotion is definitely ON.
Men's 2nds - 10th in Eastern League 3NW
It is still possible to finish in the top half with games coming up against Alford and Nomads in the lower reaches…oh and that minor tussle with McCulloch's gang.
Men's 3rd Team - 2nd in Eastern League 5NW
Is back to back promotion really possible for a CSouth team again? You bet. We just need to roll over Newmarket and Grantham, see off leaders Boston, and it all looks rosy. No pressure.
Men's 4th Team - 8th in Eastern League 6NW(S).
This is the team to watch. Lots of goals (OK so not always in the opposition's net). Constant thrills. And rising up the division. Ely and St Ives to come next, and the chance to avenge narrow defeats from earlier in the season.
Goal Kings…can Rob Barton get to the magic 50? Four more yesterday all helps. Can McCulloch make a contest of it? Oh the excitement
Dont forget the Social Events coming up…
…and enjoy the rest of the season!
