Mens 2005 Wrap-up

Thanks to everyone for their participation and support in 2005.

It was great to climb another notch on the league ladder this year... even if we faltered a bit at the end of the season it was a great improvement. In the St Patrick's Day Carnival the Men's team was undefeated, however missed the final on a countback of "45"s after drawing the semi-final against Morley. The Guys finished 2nd in the league and at times gave Finnbars cause for concern. 

Travel, work and injury took its toll towards the end of the season - not only did we lose the Monaghan boys, but we also lost some of the Aussies including our Captain (enjoy Melbourne Matt). Being only able to field a team of 12 the week before the finals prompted some soul searching... but former players and those with injuries stepped up (and back onto the field) to ensure that Greenwood had a chance in the semi-finals.

Last year we were mostly first year players. Now with the experience under our belts we just need to add to our numbers and set our sights on one more notch up the ladder, into first for 2006.
