Season’s end – Sutton’s Mighty 5ths v DLRP

Well folks, the summer 2017 season has finally ended and what a strange season it has been. It has been odd for a couple of reasons, starting with the fact that a summer season does not usually finish in October. Another strange thing about this season is the number of matches that David Lunn (normally an ever present) has missed … Read More

Banana Drama

Well, the big day has finally arrived and Sutton’s Mighty 5ths took on Dulwich 3 in the grand showdown of Division 14 East. In the year in which the great 80s pop band Bananarama have announced their intention to re-form, perhaps their back catalogue can help tell the tale of what happened. The match itself was eventful but the drama … Read More

Play your cards right

Sutton’s Mighty 5ths went into battle on Sunday with most of their team missing. Indeed, only two of the squad was available – Jason and Mike. Accordingly, we called on two old friends to fill the breach in the form of Steve Tiddy and Private Pike.

Steak and Chips(tead 2)

On Sunday 25th June, Sutton’s Mighty 5ths played their first home tie of the season. It was also our first match on the freshly resurfaced top tier and a considerable shift from the very fast courts of our match away to Cheam Fields earlier in the month.

Season’s End For The Mighty 5ths

Alongside most people in touch with their soul, I was shocked and appalled by the treatment of Claudio Ranieri by the team he led to glory last season. Were he managing Sutton’s Mighty 5ths, how might our season finale have been reported? Perhaps a few of his famous lines could help to tell the story.   Sunday 12th February saw … Read More
