On the first constitution we were placed in Division 7, which we then went up to Division 5 on the final constitution which I'm glad we did, so I'd like to say a thank you to the committee members for making that decision to boost us, it proved right even though we're a brand new team, with players that had never played together and a management team that had never managed before.
I think its fair to say, Division 5 is one of the tougher divisions in the league in terms of competitiveness. There are a number of teams that could all win the league, and even though we're currently 8th (with 3 games in hand due to cup success so far along with two replays) I'd like to think we're in with a shout, but equally are two or three others.
We've played two teams that are in higher divisions than us in the cup, one being in Division 1, the other being in Division 3 and it went really well with wins out of both which reinforces what I have to say about Division 5, its tough! Perhaps those two teams had a bad day, perhaps we had a good day.. Who knows?
As a summary my thoughts so far is that we're absolutely loving this season, for our first season I think we're doing quiet well and we're enjoying it thoroughly which is credit to the opposition, officials and the committee members that work tirelessly at the Alliance Football League.
