For the second year running Muscliff Park Petanque Club have won promotion to the top flight of the New Forest Petanque League. Only formed in 2017, the Club entered a team in Division 2 of the league last season, ending 3rd to achieve promotion to Division 1. Encouraged by this early success the Club formed a second team – the Muscliff Mavericks – for this season and again joined Division 2.
After a shaky start, losing their first three matches, the Mavericks came back strongly. Victory in their final match of the season, at home to the Three Tuns, secured second place and a ticket to the dizzy heights of Division 1 for 2019, where they join our sister team, the Marauders. We look forward to some epic derby clashes next year! You can check out the final table by turning to the Our Teams page and clicking on the link.
The 2018 Mavericks squad for the season was: J-P Elena, Paul Hayes, Jennie Pudney, Sue Godwin, Geoff Black, Steve White, Kelvin Randall, Michael Coniam, Perry Ellis, Stuart Brown and Chris Chubb.
