Men’s Champions target their 7th League title – April 19th

19 April 2018 | News

As we approach the end of April that could only mean one thing!

The 2018 Guernsey Softball Association slowpitch softball season is about to get underway, with teams now putting all that hard work during the pre-season to the test in what looks to be like an action packed season.

Friday 27th April at 6.30pm sees the start of the 2018 season with reigning Men’s champions Titans take on Sarnia Leadworks Tornadoes; with Titans looking to carry on with their winning ways in a campaign where they’ll look to claim their 7th title in the last 8 years.  While Sarnia Leadworks Tornadoes, playing in their maiden season in the Men’s Division, will look to cause an early shock and make their mark on the 2018 season.

Saturday afternoon kicks off with two match-ups in The Pony Inn’s Mixed Division 2 at 12 o’clock.  E&G Pirates will make their debut against Nerine, while on the bottom pitch last year’s runners-up Raptors look to take on First Names, who finished one place below them last season, in what is hotly tipped as the game of the day!

The other Division 2 clash will see Lock-in Hit Squad play Off the Wall Outlaws at 2 o’clock where both teams will be looking to improve on last season.

In The Pony Inn’s Mixed Division 1 we see two teams make their first division debuts when KJ Simon Tomahawks take on Tigers at 2 o’clock.  KJ Simon Tomahawks come into the league with a lot of experience & quality which could see them compete for the title this season; Tigers will be looking to avoid relegation and climb the table.

At 4 o’clock we see Drop the L Hornets take to the diamond as a Division 1 team for the first time, having been promoted after winning the Division 2 title last season, when they take on East Harbour Buccaneers.
