For the first time in many years, the British Over Achievers are within touching distance of the first division championship in season 20. A prestigious title held in the past by illustrious teams such as Gauteng Shooters, Barcelona High Dogs, Memphis Pharoahs and, erm, isn't that all of them? The time has come to break the monopoly these teams have had on the league title and give someone else a chance. So, MSWL managers, play your 'C' teams against us in season 20 - and give the underdog a fighting chance.
I joined MSWL in Season 4 as interim manager of the California Instrumentally Advantaged franchise. For season 5 I took over the team and renamed them as BOA.
I'm now 29 years old and (I think) I've been in the league for 14 years in total, sadly only winning a solitary MSWL Cup during that time. MSWL is probably the longest running web based (formally play by email) game out there and Al has done a great job keeping ahead of the curve, running and developing the league during that time. Now Phil has taken over, and knowing him as I do, I know he'll continue to take the league forward as we go into season 20 and beyond. So my thanks as ever go out to those two guys who make the whole thing possible.
I'm originally from Kendal which is on the edge of England's Lake District, I now live in Lancaster which is about half an hour away from home. My work is as a PHP web/database developer for an accommodation directory company, as well as little bits of freelance programming/web work that I can pick up.
