The Falcons retained the Wessex Supervets league with their customary defeat of Reading on the last day of the season; only doubling the result of last year and won by 6 clear goals. Highlights of the season were Steve Griffiths 23 goals, player of the year , and Dave Hughes scoring 19 goals. Both have played for Wales over 50s and Steve scored 2 goals in the recent over 55s home internationals in defeating Ireland and losing narrrowly to England despite Steve giving Wales the lead.
Steve will represent Wales in the over 50s home internationals – he is only 53 – and both Steve and Dave have been selected for the European Championships in August.
For the rest of the players, the midfield pairing of Neil Biggs and Chris Billington were superb throughout. Ian Sobey weighed in with some important goals and Dave Blomley and Richard Wilsdon were consistently good in defence. The oldies of Peter Curtis, Rogan Meadows and Tony Henman were again age defying and rose to the occasion when needed. We were also indebted to having the services of John Kaluza and although Peter Bennett only played twice; his 4 goals certainly helped!
The league will be changing next year with additional sides from Kent. Lastly, thanks to Richard Wilson for the fixture organising and to Hugh Bentley for doing the bulk of the umpiring. Additional thanks to Dave Robson and Geoff Paver for helping with umpiring when needed.
