With Corey ‘Beeley’ Beeley and Jeppe ‘Jeppehou’ Hougaard returning from the team last time around, the addition of UK scene stalwart, Harry ‘Akkers’ Akrill, 17 year old UK prodigy, Will ‘Noname’ Jones, and an up and coming German, Marc ‘manki’ Sieber, we were confident we had the talent to take the league by storm.
However, as often is the way, things didn’t exactly start the way we had hoped. Despite a respectable 1-1 record in our opening week, the team took some time to gel, which lead to a disappointing start to our season with losses to some of the lower-table sides. However, the team showed great perseverance and secured us a strong seed for the UKLC play-offs tournament.
Heading into the semi-finals, the mood in our camp was great. We knew it was now or never for us to truly get ourselves together and perform when it mattered most. After a great week of practice, we managed to win our semi-final convincingly, securing our back-to-back finals placement and even more importantly, a spot in the all important Northern European challenger tournament called Telia Masters.
