After much consideration, I have decided to leave the team (as a player) and have accepted a place with the Kamikazes (a team I played in a tournament in 2006) as a player and their coach/training session organiser. After really enjoying playing in a variety of tournaments over the summer and in the indoor league this winter, I want to see if I can survive playing in what should be a pretty tough Division 4 this season.
I want to thank everyone for making last year such an enjoyable first year in the sport for me, both on and off the field. I feel proud to have been a little part of Loan Wolves history, as captain and All Star. We had some great matches together as a team, the one away to the Tornadoes and the home match to London Raiders come to mind, where we were so close to claiming all three points.
As I count many of you as friends, and thus would hope to stay in contact as much as possible, I want to put my application in for being the Loan Wolves second 'Social Member' (after Karen). Also, Kamikazes fixtures permitting, my Dad and I will definitely come along and see some of your matches this season as a supporters ( we will be the one's wearing orange).
Finally, I wish the team all the best for the future, and hope that you all get the elusive first ever win (apart from the 2nd Dingos vs Caribou game) that you so deserve next year. When you do, make sure that you collect Devil Stray Duncan's kind offer of a round of drinks for the team :-)
PS Finally, I have got the team something as a sort of leaving gift, to hopefully assist with your spring training programme and help you to progress on the field (by practicing off it). Fingers crossed you should have it by the end of the week. Keep your eyes open Cooler King!
