Season 2008 / 2009

This season has proved a successful one for the Wyverns as they finished the season in a more than creditable 4th position in a league consisting of primarily 2nd XV's.

Park spent the majority of the 2007 / 2008 season rooted to the foot of the table and were unable to muster a full 15 most weeks, however to progress this season to a situation whereby they were only defeated once since christmas culminating in a win over a side that had been topping the league most of the season was truly outstanding.

The season has been successful in not only the results the side has achieved, but also in the squad and the atmosphere around it that has been developed and my thanks go to every player that turned out for the side this season as they have each added to the side. Added to this my thanks to the photographer Jo-Anne Donnelly who turned out week in week out so as to allow us all to feed our ego's on a Monday when looking for pictures of ourselves in the reports!

There are too many players to mention individuals as no-one deserves to not be mentioned so my thanks once again to everyone who has participated this year and let's look to make the next step in the coming season and hopefully push for promotion.

** As a footnote I would also like to add my congratulations to the 2nd team for their success in winning their league and clinching promotion to the premier league this season and also the 4th team in finishing 3rd in their league. At the start of the season our main concern was making sure we still had a 4th team come the end of the season, however the hard work put in all season by James McAlonan and the lads has been a credit to them and they can hopefully also make a push up the league next season.
