Some great news and many congratulations to the Bristol Penguins, who finished their final DIV SW Regional Tournament last weekend at our Outdoor Pitch. They won 14 out of 14 games and securing promotion to Div 1 SW next season. In addition their goal difference was +39 goals – obviously they didn’t play the Pitbulls!!!
Very best of luck in Div 1 Penguins – there are some mighty Sharks in that league! More details are available from James Putterill.

The Pitbulls had a little bit of a slow start to the new season 2017/18 with one win and 4 losses. However, two games were very narrow losses and this was a new team with great efforts from Sam and “young” Rob. Next time we will be stronger.
Big congratulations to our Penguin Polo Team who won their league and a massive trophy (see enclosed) at the international Canoe Polo Tournament in Belgium over the wee

For those unable to attend, the Polo Guys have a regular session on Wednesday from 6-30pm. Come and along and have a go…..
For those who played in Div. 2 SW at Millfield this season, the Bristol CC team came 5th out of 12. It was looking so much better prior to the final tournament!!
Thanks to Dan for organising the team and entry.
The Pitbulls had a very successful third tournament beating 3 teams above them in the league and a narrow defeat by the league Champions Cherwell. Congratulations to Cherwell for winning the league and good luck to our fellow Penguins for a play off spot.
