Premier –

 

Souls had an outstanding year going undefeated in League and Cup, with Rally Caps not far behind. 3rd place and mid-table was a very close affair with Dodgers, Demons and Storks all in the mix for a little while, Storks finished strong and took 3rd.

Batters had lost personnel going into the 2019 season and a few injuries made 2019 a struggle to fill those gaps, hopefully a chance to regenerate in D1 next season.

 

Division 1

 

From the get go it looked a two horse race and maybe the Nuts as favourites, but the Bolts won all three head to head games and strolled to a 14-1 record.  Nuts just behind with Haar Hitters sealing up 3rd. Vultures and Vandals got off to a slow start, with a rescheduled 1st game and then a rain delay for their 2nd neither team had gotten off the mark as yet. Vultures went on a roll and were the only team to take a game from the Bolts in 2019, finishing a strong mid-table and reaching the Handicap cup final.

 

 

End of Season Awards night will be 11th October at Surgeons Hall, Edinburgh from 7pm.  Hope to see you all there.

 

 

**League survey will be sent out to Team Captains in the coming weeks, looking for feedback from this season.

Cup Final Winner is….

Wednesday 28th August saw the final of the Handicap Cup for 2019, With Souls taking on Vultures.

Handicap advantage was with Vultures who were given a 12 run start and won the coin toss for who would be home team.  Souls started strong with the bats and by the 4th inning the game was tied, Vultures continued to score small numbers but once Souls had caught them and taken the lead, time and innings ran out for the Vultures with the game being called bottom of the 6th as the 5 run limit meant that Souls could not be caught.

 

Final Score: Souls 24 Vultures 18
