Mythop Badminton Season 2018-19

Following on from the success of the previous season, Mythop decided to enter a 2 team in Mid Lancs to try and give the less experienced players regular league games.

Mythop A were hoping to consolidate a mid-table position in Div 3 after promotion last year, but had a great season ending in 3 place. However, after the early season results, they found themselves handicapped out of the cup losing in the preliminary round to the eventual champions Hawks D.

Mythop B had an excellent 1 season also, finishing 3 in Div 4 and at one stage looked in danger of promotion, which would have been just too soon. Their league position also meant a hard handicap in the cup and they went out in the 1 round.

Both teams felt the 3 place positions were just right as the next level would take some hard work, but the league have reorganised over the summer, and the A team have been moved up to play a much higher standard next season. The team are realistic and know they are likely to be the whipping boys in the division, but will try their best.

The joint Mythop/Lids team found the next level really difficult and maybe relegated depending on a league restructure. But a generous handicap in the cup helped them reach the cup final, and came runner up just losing out to Kirkham Charter B after a close match.

The Over Wyre League was a little disappointing with some teams unable of fulfil their fixtures, but the Mythop team won the division again, and after some discussion on the league’s future at their AGM, the league will continue for another year.
