Finishing Touch (2016)

Olé Olé Olé Olé ...

A sweltering July evening (the culmination of the hottest day of the year so far) saw Dave's Dad's Dog's Dead secure the 2016 Chesham Touch Premiership title for the 3rd year in succession, a thumping 25-4 victory meaning that we overtook the incumbent league leaders, Chairman's Choice,  on try difference.

With a record of Played 10, won 9 and lost 1 - with 148 tries scored, it was a great effort from the team with the oldies increasingly playing a supporting role to the young stars. It's a team the core of which has been playing together since 2010 - and in some cases the team has quite literally grown up together.

4 tries during the season from yours truly, despite having to nurse my heel injury through the latter weeks, was quite satisfying - even though my general form and fitness didn't ever quite hit the heights that I would have liked.

So, almost unbelievably, another Touch season has come to an end with the only consolation being that my poor, abused plantar fascia will finally get some relief.
