We Are Winners!

Darren has bonked backrow1720 again in the last game against the Winchester club in our very first match! Our record is now 1-0 as a team. What great fun! I'll be looking to set up more matches for us soon. In the meanwhile, check out Darren's performance as analyzed by Fritz after the break.
