Ashfield 1 – Season 2016/17 Report

After somewhat of a disastrous start, losing to the second team, things didn’t improve much in 2016. Finding ourselves in a five way relegation battle with our second team, Grantham 2, Gambit 2, and West Bridgford, we managed wins against the first two in the New Year. Then, thanks to Neil, we recruited Louis and beat the other two. This seemingly put us safe, but thanks to an administrative error by me, we were plunged into a sea of disputes and potential lost points.

Going into the last game of the season at Champions elect Grantham 1 (who had won all their matches, and had beaten us 5-0 in the home game) these were still rumbling on and we needed to pick up at least one draw to be sure to avoid relegation on these technicalities. It was a tense match but in the end Louis and I both managed to secure draws (both coming close to wins as it happened) and, although Grantham completed their clean sweep of the League, we are safely ensconced in Division 1 for next season.

The following table shows the individual performances this season.
