Sometimes we play in tournaments. Sometimes they're serious. Sometimes they're really not. But they usually result in some good stories. Which we try and record here!

The One Where Caddy Got the Weather Wrong, Again

Another summer hockey tournament! ;)

This time, a 7-a-side mixed tournament organised by Decathlon. So of course we wouldn’t be Cambridge South if we didn’t pitch up and represent…

And this is what we did. We pitched up! Some a bit worse for wear, from the expected, “I’m hung-over” from the night before to the, “My wheel ...

Summer 7s 2018 - THE FINALE

After the rollercoaster of emotions, the ups and downs, the celebrations and the heartaches, it’s all over. No, not England’s World Cup campaign, which for once is lasting longer than a bowl of strawberries at Wimbledon, but this years South Summer 7s mixed tournament.

The evening opened with the Plate leaders, Queens’ Greatest ...

South Mixed Team Show Some Pride

London Pride Cup 2018

To say we didn’t have the smoothest start to the day would be a slight understatement. Katie messaged on Friday night to say that she’d lost her stick then Shin over-napped and so couldn’t pick up the minibus until Saturday morning.

Katie found her stick, Shin picked up ...

Some may remember Joe’s season as captain of the M4s, when he left his hitherto-unbeaten side ...

The Cup continues to keep everyone on the edge of their seats, with only a hair’s breadth between triumph and disaster. A first defeat for TFI Thursday this week against Banana Hammocks sees Colin ...

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 ...

Keep Your Valuables Safe, These Girls are on the Prowl for Goals

True to the well-oiled machine that we are, this blogpost is a montage of memories contributed by many of the L2 crew who trekked to Norwich for their pre-season tournament this Sunday. Thanks for organising it, Norwich! It was worth it, eh?

First a camp must be established. Cue grand assembly of chairs, blankets, food ...

Norwich City Pre-season 7s

Unlike matches, tournaments do not usually have a Lemon. However, there are some occasions that demand that an exception be made. The M3s’ trip to Norwich City’s Pre-Season 7-a-side Tournament was such an occasion.

The award was sealed (very) early doors by, of course, Will Jones. Having gamely and slightly surprisingly signed up for ...
