It's been fantastic to see the Squad develop this season- I have loved every minute of it, especially seeing some of the former M&J's integrating so well. A great blend of leadership, coaching/management, experience & youth - just how it should be.

Many Congratulations to all players & coaches on such a fine effort - well done to all.

We definitely Stood Fast and Did Not Surrender - well, apart from the odd Blips v DMP and the like.
