This week saw the Clapham Common Autumn League finals which took place on Sunday the 2 November. There were Men’s, Ladies and Mixed teams in the leagues as well as various divisions in the mixed leagues.
There are different levels of touch players, inexperienced to experienced which gives the learning curve of the game a faster pace as many of the players in our Sunday Leagues are in the England Touch squads preparing to go to the 2015 Touch World Cup in Coffs Harbour, Australia. An interesting fact is that one of the Men’s England Touch players is the man who raced the tube who has been very popular on Youtube, James Heptonstall.
The men’s league had a shocking twist of events as Cannonballs, the front runners who hadn’t lost a game all season came up against a strong Chillis team in the final and with some spectacular touchdowns Chillis came out victors winning 7-5. The Ladies league saw many new faces which is wonderful to see in developing the ladies game for the future seasons. Galaxy had enough ladies to create two teams and after 8 weeks of playing both teams ended up in the Finals. Congrats for the ladies CSSC teams on growing their ladies teams and offering plenty of coaching.
