A Tale of Two Sittings

There’s no doubt that Cambridge South has come a long way over the past couple of decades, from a little village club with a couple of men’s and a single ladies’ side (as in, there was only one ladies’ team, rather than all the ladies in it were single.

Another storming set of matches last night! After 2 rounds only 1 of the 12 teams has a 100% record, and just 3 remain unbeaten (that 2 of those teams are captained by the competition organisers is entirely coincidental…)

At the far end things kicked off with Banana Hammocks making up for last week’s ...

Well, an exciting first week for Summer 7s that figuratively and literally smacked you in the balls!

In the Cup, Amalia’s Miracle Whip flew out the blocks with an 8-goal blitz to set the early pace while DJ Hazzardous and his P-Flicks & Chill team snapped the Banana Hammocks’ elastic to join them on ...
