Believe it or not it has been 12 months since we embarked on the start of the 2509/10 Season. While it actually finished over four months ago, it has taken us a while to get back to speed here on the website due to various technical issues and real life getting in the way.
Over the last few days we have taken a brief look back at the four competitions that have taken place this season and handed out a couple of awards. In case you have missed them, the links are as follows:
- Open Scramble 2509/10 Review
- Pepslay Challenge 2509/10 Review
- Slammer Shield Review
- Championship IV Review
As much as we would like to go on about this season, we feel that the above posts capture the feeling and we really need to move on. As document many (many) times, it has been groundbreaking season and one where the league came into its own. There have been so many surprises from the possible last matches of the Rangers and RSV, the Slammers actually winning something to a simple linesman winning the best player award for his performance during the championship IV! Its a stark reminder that anything can happen here in the HDWSBBL!
As we have done it with all the competitions, it would be a shame to miss it now. No Season would be complete without some awards being handed out!
