Marauders Manager of the Month Award for March (and other news)

Well its that time of the month again, when we assess the results of the Marauders Teams.
We note

  1. 3 Teams were unbeaten all month. Knights, Giants and Saints.
  2. All Teams won at least once.
  3. Most Teams won or drew more than they lost, meaning we can call ourselves a WINNING CLUB!
  4. And there were some impressive turnarounds and challenges overcome within March

For instance

  • The Panthers, Leopards & Bilbaos all started off losing this month but fought back to winning ways by the end of it.
  • The Phoenixes had the tradegy of a match being abandoned, due to a player sustaining a nasty injury and responded as a Team by winning the next 2 matches in tribute. Well done to Eddy and the boys.
  • The Lightenings took their cup run up to the semi finals and are still in with a good chance of getting promoted this Season. Well done, Vinny and the Lads.
  • If the month had fallen differently, with 4 matches instead of 5, the Vipers would be unbeaten in the last 4.
  • The Tigers had a mixed month, but if there was an award for the match reports of the month, Manager Dan would win hands down. Cheers Dan and keep up the good work.
  • The Saracens coninued their push at the top of their league. Impressive considering when was talking to Gary the other night, he confirmed it was 2 years ago they lost every match bar one, before Xmas. Keep it going Gary, Mike and the boys!
  • And the Sharks, Dragons, Eagles, Jets & Pumas all held their league positions ready for the end of season final push.

And so, as it can be seen the there are a number of candidates for the award this month. BUT given his team also won their league title this month, surely that should be the final dip at the line needed.
AND SO, the award for March Manager of the Month must go to Sir D…….
WAIT…
Is this a last minute veto from an anonymous committee member…..
‘If ****** thinks he getting manager of the month having got me up on Mother’s Day for this match, he’s got another thing coming!’

Oh well, I guess it will have to go to the vote at the managers meeting this Monday night, 7th April.
See you there folks. And non manager attendance rules you out of the vote! 🙂

The ‘And Finally’, pieces of news this month were

  1. Stuart; manager of the Panthers, Sharks, Junior Development, pitches & equipment, and least we forget, Feb MMotM; passed his Level 2 Coaching Badges this month. Well done Stuart. This means he can now, err …… (Sorry, I just do the web site, don’t really know much about football :0)
  2. Prestwich OLOG won their school’s Year 6 League, also this month. Of interest to the Marauders as they contain 6, U11 & U10 Marauders player. Well done to all concerned.
