Tankards X Champions, Tankards Y unbeaten and Pitchers promoted

April 5, 2017

How often does it happen in sport that a team goes unbeaten, but yet doesn’t win the league ? Well it happened this season in the East League South West 9 where Tankards Y were unbeaten over 22 matches, winning 16 and drawing 6, but yet were beaten to the League title by Tankards X who won 19, drew 1 and lost 2. Both teams have been promoted and will play in East SW8 next season.

After leading East SW8 for a large part of the season, the Pitchers ended the season as runners up to Blueharts 6s (who recorded a perfect season!) winning 18, drawing 1, and losing 3. Consequently they have also been promoted and will play in East SW8 next season.
