This Saturday there will be an after party for the Beginners Tournament at the Partick Brewing Co. (formerly the Partick Tavern) on Dumbarton Road, kicking off at 7.30. This will be the first official social event of the season and is a good chance for the squad to get to know each other! All Lions are invited, including those not playing at the tournament. We will have a live band, games and prizes. Be there or be square!
Unfortunately due to numbers we will only be able to enter one team for the Edinburgh STS this Sunday. We can only send a certain amount of players and unfortunately some will have to miss out. Sincere apologies for this and thanks again for showing an interest in playing. There are however plenty more tournaments coming up that you can enter via the website.
The Squad is as follows:
