Wow.Where do I start?How about with 'YEEEEEAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!'I think that nicely sums up what, at least for me, was one of the best tournament performances - EVER - for Chichester flag football. Two comeback victories from 2 scores down in both the semis and final, gave the Sharks their 2nd National Championship. I'm still stunned and not entirely sure how it happened.Let's take a step back first. The day started with a round robin tournament to fullfil the qualifying criteria for the Leicester Eagles and Mildenhall Mayhem. Except Mayhem didn't turn up... again. We beat the Eagles and lost to the Voodoo, but it was obvious that all three teams were saving the good stuff for the games that really mattered.On the day, the Sharks squad featured Neil Henderson, Pete Steel,…
Chichester Sharks!!!Sharks beat Voodoo 31-29 in a come from behind thriller!More details to come.Well done guys :)
The final tournament of 2007 will be held this Sunday in Chichester. The venue is our usual training ground and kickoff is 11 a.m.We had hoped to arrange a venue with changing facilities, but despite lots of last minute ringing around we were unable to sort something.I will be in touch with each of you today to find out your availability for Sunday - please reply by text or post your intention here in the comments.Subject to the number of teams attending there may be some qualifying games for some teams to start the day, but Chichester have a bye to the Semi-finals by merit of finishing with the 2nd best qualifying record.Hope to see you all there :)
This weekend Team England are playing a friendly against Wales in Cardiff. It is part of the development programme, to give experience to the new expanded England squad. Chichester are well represented with Team England, with a good number travelling this weekend. The downside of this is we're left with limited numbers for training on Sunday, so we've decided to take this weekend off - so no training.It's been quite some time since we've missed a Sunday, so that'll be weird! Good luck to all the guys playing this weekend.The following weekend is scheduled to be the Finals tournament. We are currently trying to organise a venue after a late change of plans. More details to come soon.
