Our #OrchardShoots January Round Up!
As we are now mid-way through the season in the heat of the January transfer window, here is how things are looking in the #OrchardShoots league…
Leading the way at the top of the table are Pat Hynes’ ’Benfica Babes’, after a successful December run. Hynes’ side finished the year strong, achieving 95 points in GW19, and 110 points in GW20. Whilst his performance dropped slightly in the new year, he was back to winning ways this weekend with a healthy 86 points.
15 points behind the leaders is Tomasz Kucharski’s ‘Qchars’ in second place, who have recently brought in Lingard, Alli, and Son in an attempt to reach the top spot.
Another notable contender for the #OrchardShoots trophy is Dean Elliot and ‘The Chutney Ferrets’, who have been in great form this new year. They have moved up to 5th place, but with Liverpool’s Salah joining the squad, Dean will have serious intentions of chasing ‘Benfica Babes’ to win some silverware.
Luke Hargrave’s ‘Red Devils’ are sitting tight in 3rd post, but with no recent transfers and the pressure of ‘The Chutney Ferrets’ and 4th place ‘Pep’s Bald Head’ behind them, will they be able to deliver the results to stay put?
Our current Champions, ‘Reid or Deid’, are sitting down in 18th - but after a strong end to 2017 Matt’s team need to keep the points coming in order to climb back up the table during the second half of the season.
As for the performance of our Orchard representatives… well we’re better off not mentioning it! Our Orchard alumni, however, are performing honourably this season! With Dave Howarth in comfortable stead at 4th place, and AJ’s ‘Hullywood FC’ cracking the top ten also.
It’s sure to be a tough few months ahead, and there is a long way to go until we can name our 17/18 #OrchardShoots champion. It’s too early for congratulations, but until then good luck to all contenders!
