Last Sunday was the semi finals of the Late Autumn Touch League, and it proved to be another fantastic day out for everyone involved. Thanks to the soft grass, there were ample opportunities for players to practice their diving and sliding techniques. One of the touch players from the CSSC teams said
“It doesn’t matter how old you are — everyone loves playing in the mud!”
The Mixed League had some exciting games, pushing everyone to their limits, and there were some awesome touchdowns. This Sunday is the Finals of the league, with lots of prizes on offer to the teams that win the competition as well as some trophies and medals up for grabs.
One of the clubs that play in our London leagues is the CSSC club. They are all Civil Service Members who love Touch, and are growing rapidly as a force to be reckoned with. The two players that have taken this club to where they are now are Lois Lau, who is currently in the England Women’s Over 27’s Team, and Chris Wall, who is currently in the England Men’s Over 30’s Team. They have provided some fantastic coaching for all their players and have teams in both the National Touch Championships and the Club Touch Championship.
CSSC now have many new members playing touch throughout London, and they even run their own league on Monday nights to promote the game and help their new players learn the rules and show off their skills. We look forward to see how this club will grow in the future and to see how their players continue to succeed.
There will be new Touch leagues starting in January for the indoor Active Touch Leagues at Canary Wharf on Mondays, and at Wandsworth on Tuesdays and Thursdays. There will also be a new Winter League on Sundays at Clapham Common starting in February, where you can enter your teams or enter as an individual.
