The Met signed off the 2017-2018 season with an impressive collection of silverware and new targets already set for next season.
Having swept all before them up until March, the Met ended the League season with just two defeats, securing an impressive 15 bonus points on their way to the Surrey 3 title. It was the Met's resilience in defence that secured the title, the points against being twenty points better than anyone else and the only club to concede less than 300 points. Whilst not the most prolific of point scorers, the Met could boast the League's leading try scorer, Chris Holloway achieving the accolade with over a try a game.
The newly formed 2ndXV also claimed glory, lifting the Surrey President's Chalice with a fine last minute win at Esher. There is no doubt that the growing strength of the squad has contributed to the great results this season; hopefully the great results will help to strengthen the squad for next season.
The PSUK Cup saw the Met reach the final in Stourbridge for the first time for many years. Unfortunately, the PSNI proved far too strong, although some may claim that if we'd played for another 4 hours the Met was getting back into it! Nevertheless, it was a valuable lesson for the Met, showing what can be achieved by a police team that trains together very regularly and is given time to do so by the Service - ed.
The Club can now look forward to a summer of gloating, the strengthening of the squad and entering the new season as likely favourites to be promoted again, if they follow the path of their predecessors.
The Club AGM takes place on 31st May and the Club Dinner on 30th June.
