EAST SURREY LEAGUE - final doings!!!!!!

11 Sep 2018


Morning all,


I'm circulating my email of yesterday (below) more widely around the club. Originally sent only to Gents players, I'm responding to a number of very kind comments last night about our Gents' success. Yes, you're right Ladies: this is very much a piece of 'club' success/news, and to be enjoyed right across our membership. So, here we are:


"My immediate thought on learning this was that Harry would have been very proud of his club.

Whether you:

  • are a club member who put your name down but who was rarely or not selected for ESL (but who in doing so gave us the confidence that spreads from wider group readiness and skills improvement)
  • are that highly-valued available reserve
  • played once, twice, whatever, or in every match...

.... thank you. Great season. And a day after our last game, even greater season. Why? Well results are in, but I’ll spin it out, for context:

  • 2015: 1st Division, 73 points, relegated
  • 2016: 2nd Division, 68 points, bottom
  • 2017: 2nd Division, 101 points, 3rd!
  • 2018: 2nd Division, 126 points, 2nd...PROMOTED!

Amazing... more later, but for now Gents, very very well done!!!!!!
