After a slow start to the season in Round 1, the Lions travelled South of the river in Round 2 to play the Putney Magpies in all 3 grades.  Games against Putney in recent times have been fast and furious, with a healthy dose of sledging from the side lines and plenty of controversy on the field.  Just what everyone likes in a day out at the footy!   Third grade: Lions 12.4 edged out in the last few minutes of the game by the Pies 13.7 With several Lions back in the fold following Round 1, the lads were ready and raring to go Read More
Clarence is speechless. Or was for a while, hence the slow update. It all came crashing this Saturday just gone, as all 3 Lions teams were knocked out at the final hurdle. Needless to say, it’s a disappointing way to wrap up what has been a huge year. From that first Sunday training back in January when everyone got so boozed most didn't make it to work the next day, this year felt like it could be a big one. And it has been. A grand final or two would have been a nice way to wrap it all up, but it wasn't to be this time 'round. On Read More
The regular season has come to an end, and Clarence is very happy to report that the Lions delivered on all fronts on the weekend.  We won games, we won the boat race, we won raffles, and we survived the Disaster on the Routemaster (which is about as close to a win as you can get with something like that)   Special mention to the rain, which bucketed down in tropical proportions for most of the day.  Players and the few spectators that were brave enough to turn out were at risk of drowning during the early games, however full credit to everyone Read More
Round 9 is behind us, and 3 big wins puts all 3 Lions teams safely into the finals action.  With one week to go, that doesn’t mean we can all switch off, but it does take a little of the pressure off.  You can all give yourselves a gentle pat on the back, as long as you front up this week to wrap up the regular season with another 3 big wins. Below are Clarence’s observations, ruminations, thoughts and feelings: 3rd Grade:  Defeated Reading 14.15.99 to 9.4.58 We welcomed the Reading Roos to Bounds Green, knowing that they knocked Read More
3 Lions teams made the trip down to the deepest, darkest reaches of Putney, where we were due to face the Magpies in all 3 grades.   As is the case in London, asking Lions to leave the safety of the tube and take a short bus ride to the footy is a nightmare waiting to happen, and so it was that we were spread far and wide across South West London on Saturday morning.   The phones were ringing hot, Google maps were working overtime, and somehow we actually managed to get everyone there at approximately the right time.  Read on for details Read More
