Very happy with my run in the UK Open, venturing into Mid Wales for the opening IPA tour stop of 2015 and being edged out in the final by 8-6. Played at top of my game for large part sof the event and probably just a late night finish cost me in the end.

Back From the National County finals in Selsey. I got the call Tue night to jump in and am really glad i did.

Considering its only been going two years its astounding that we had 60 people at Selsey. Next year is bound to be a C team getting there too with so much interest. Big well done...

The other two players on each side will hopefully be made up with recognisable faces with work already under way to try and entice some former footballers. The idea is that all in attandance will wear their football shirts and...

We as a committee decided the only way for the sport to progress was under the WPA umbrella which guarantees accountability and also offers significantly more prestige than it ever had ...
