Both the results and league tables have now been updated to reflect our recent games and other league activity. The Sharks (5-1) are looking strong in the English Conference following our recent two wins, with only Mildenhall and Coventry ahead of us by merit of winning percentage (both 2-0). The competition in Scotland is looking fierce, with Kirkcaldy (5-0) and Carluke (5-1) leading the pack. Leicester and Glasgow (Tigers) have both yet to play a game.
NFL Tickets for London on Sale! If you were smart, a few month's ago upon hearing the news that Wembley is to host another NFL game during the 2008 season, you would have registered your interest for tickets with NFLUK.com. Today, following a random lottery draw, the NFL announced that a few thousand lucky registrants have been informed that they are able to buy a maximum of 4 tickets next Thursday to see the NFL game at Wembley. I'm one of the those lucky few - as is Neil :) Did anyone else get the chance to buy NFL tickets to see the San Diego Chargers play the New Orleans Saints at Wembley, London in October?
Here is the first video from Devon - our victory over the St. Albans Kings. Kings Part 1 Kings Part 2 I'd forgotten about Ric's endzone dance...it's something 'special'. And here is the film from the Devon game. Unfortunately, there is a bit where part of a drive is missing as the battery ran out. By the time a new battery was in, we'd scored - and it was my score that was missing! Dogs Part 1 Dogs Part 2 There are many great plays in both videos - on O and D - so well worth taking a few minutes to watch. I'll be updating league tables shortly, plus compiling the leading scorers table.
There were touchdowns aplenty in Devon on Sunday, as the Sharks took on and defeated both the St. Albans Kings and the North Devon Dogs. There were 222 points scored in just 3 matches with an average of 74 points a game - which is just incredible. Well done to all the Sharks that went on Sunday, it was an awesome team effort, especially considering the heat. The final results were as follows: Sharks 61 - 0 Kings Dogs 100 - 6 Kings Sharks 43 - 12 Dogs Dayle had set us the target of two shut outs to aim for and whilst we didn't quite achieve that we came very close - to concede 2 scores against the Dogs after watching them rack up 100 points against the Kings…
This Sunday sees the Chichester Sharks travel to the West Country to face long time rivals, the North Devon Dogs and newcomers, the St. Albans Kings. The Sharks and Dogs have been squaring up for years, facing each other 10 times whilst in the ESFL. The Sharks hold the advantage going 9-1 in that time. This weekend will see the teams against each other for the first time in the new BAFL Flag league. It will also be the Dogs opening game of the season. The Kings are in their inaugural season and currently sit at the foot of the league table with an 0-2 record, including a 33-6 defeat at the hands of the Sharks on opening weekend. Travel Arrangements It's a long trek down to Barnstaple so we're…
There is no training this Sunday as we travel down to Barnstaple in Devon to face old rivals the North Devon Dogs and new BAFL Flag team the St Albans Kings who we beat in the first set of games a month ago. Training resumes in Chichester on Sunday 18th May.
This week training will be held at Christ's Hospital school, near Horsham. The session will commence at 10 a.m. with an hour in the classroom before taking to the field until 2 p.m. If you need a lift from Chichester, let Neil or myself know. We'll be leaving the usual car park at New Park at 8.45 a.m. The training will be on grass so bring studs, plus £2.50 for pitch hire.
