I would firstly like to thank you both for the wonderful organisation of this league, this was the first time I entered anything competitive and I must say the regular updates and organisation was superb. I enjoyed myself very much!

"The league is a nice concept and I can see that you must put a lot of work into all of the leagues that you organise.  All the people I met were really friendly and fair in their play. I will definitely enter again later in the year,"
