The League AGM was held this week and the undoubted highlight was that the Hampstead Heat have withdrawn from the league. Citing umpiring issues, lack of player availability as well as a strong disliking for the Pimlico Pirates and their manager, as the primary reasons for leaving the league. Alas, they have not disbanded and have simply upped sticks and moved across the Go Mammoth outdoor league.
No doubt PSC will be split by this breaking news with some cracking open an extra bottle of champagne at the 5 year anniversary part and others shedding a tear for demise of this once great sporting club.
The icing on the cake at the AGM was that the Canary Cubs failed so send a representative so will also start in Minors 2 with a 1 point deduction, if they can field a team at all.
