A successful season by our standards, but standards are rising.

At the midpoint of the season, Harps are among a wide group of teams poised for a shot at promotion; indeed only 3 points cover the pack between 2nd and 7th place.
While this marks a genuine improvement on any season in distant memory, this year’s group are a tad disappointed to have fallen back a little, having enjoyed a 5-game unbeaten run at one stage.
The season has seen an enjoyable rivalry blossom for the inaugural Lord of the Oche Trophy.
Only league games count towards the final standings, and leading the way are Robbie White and Paddy Faloon – both with 6 (straight) wins from 7 appearances, and Shane Mulholland with 6 from 8.
There has of course been a few not-so-strong performers too, but it’s a team game, and naming and shaming them might hurt morale, so you won’t find that information here.
No actually I can’t help it. Matty Shields lost 5 in a row at one stage.
The season now enjoys a short winter break (we’d happily trade that break for a week’s salary if any Premiership footballers are whinging) before recommencing on 22 January. Our first opponents then are the runaway leaders Windmill, so it’s a tough start back at it.
Your support is always welcome.
