SEASON 2018-2019     -     KING PAWNS
Players Ian Calvert, Matt Darville, Nick Edwards, Martin Faulkner, Paul Jackson, Anubhav Phukan.
Position Premiership: 4 of 6
Comments It was the middle of the season that did for their title chances after a cracking start (2 wins out of 2). Although they eventually finished one above the red zone, they were never really in any danger of dropping down a division - and finished 1 point behind 2nd place and with a better board score total!
SEASON 2017-2018     -     KING PAWNS
Players Steve Brocklesby, Matt Darville, Nick Edwards, Martin Faulkner, Paul Jackson, Frank Kane.
Position Premiership: 5 of 8
Comments Another steady season and another 5th placed finish, despite their strongest player being unavailable almost from the start of the campaign - and their "reserve" player towards the end of the season.  With 3 wins in their first 4 games, they must have felt at that point that they had a chance of reclaiming the title they won 3 years ago, but 2 draws and then a final round default edged them away from the top a little  However they did only finish 2 points behind the eventual champions! 
SEASON 2016-2017     -     KING PAWNS
Players Steve Brocklesby, Matt Darville, Nick Edwards, Martin Faulkner, Paul Jackson, Frank Kane.
Position Premiership: 5 of 8
Comments This wasn't such a good season for them, but a 5th placed finish was achieved without there ever being a major threat of relegation.  They started the season very well and then slipped away somewhat before a final round win established them in mid-table.
SEASON 2015-2016     -     KING PAWNS
Players Steve Brocklesby, Matt Darville, Nick Edwards, Martin Faulkner, Paul Jackson, Frank Kane.
Position Premiership: 2 of 8
Comments It was another good season for King Pawns, although defeat in the penultimate round to the eventual champions put pay to their hopes of retaining their crown.  It was often tight for them with over half of their wins coming by way of the narrowest possible margin.
SEASON 2014-2015     -     KING PAWNS
Players Steve Brocklesby, Nick Edwards, James Schenck, Martin Faulkner, Paul Jackson.
Position Premiership - 1 of 6       Cup - Lost in Cup Q-F
Comments Will a team ever win the league again having lost heavily to their closest rivals and with a 0 goal difference?  They were thumped 4-0 by Pawn Crackers 1 in their 2nd league match but managed to win all 4 other rounds by the narrowest possible margin to take the title in an amazingly close finish.  The cup showed no signs of leading them to a double as they went out at the Q-F stage.
SEASON 2013-2014     -     KING PAWNS
Players Nick Edwards, Paul Jackson, Girinath Haridas, Ian Pratley (Capt), Vince Brady.
Position Premiership - 3rd of 8      Cup - Losing finalists in the cup
Comments Defeat to Pawn Cocktail in the middle round of league matches left King Pawns bottom with 2 games to go, but victory over Barcelona in round 4 out them back above Pawn Cocktail who eventually went down after a tense final round of games.  King Pawns were losers in the cup semis to the eventual winners.
SEASON 2012-2013     -     KING PAWNS
Players Nick Edwards, Paul Jackson, Girinath Haridas, Ian Pratley (Capt), Vince Brady.
Position Premiership - 3rd of 8      Cup - Losing finalists in the cup
Comments A solid season all round but just falling short of silverware.  They ran all the way to the cup final, only losing to Pawn Crackers by the odd point in 4.  In the league, they achieved a solid 3rd place, winning all of the 3 wins by the narrowest margin and losing to the eventual champions by the same margin.  They only lost one heavily to the eventual runners-up.
SEASON 2011-2012     -     KING PAWNS
Players Vince Brady, Tristan Clayton, Nick Edwards, Girinath Haridas, Ian Pratley (Capt)
Position Premiership - 5th of 8
Comments A new start under a new captain saw a fairly solid start to the new season with 2 wins a draw in the opening 4 rounds.  However defeat in the next 2 left them battling to avoid the drop in the final round, which they did with a draw against newly promoted Barcelona.
SEASON 2010-2011     -     KING PAWNS
Players Vince Brady, Tristan Clayton, Nick Edwards, Sam Fry (Capt), Ian Pratley
Position Premiership - 3rd of 8
Comments Their only consistency was their results' inconsistency in the opening 4 weeks of the season as they went L-W-L-W.  They never really seemed in danager and indeed, improved on last season's finish by taking a podium place.  They had a good and reliable squad to thank for that.
SEASON 2009-2010     -     KING PAWNS
Players Vince Brady, Nick Edwards, Sam Fry, Richard Ledingham (Capt), Ian Pratley
Position Premiership - 4th of 8
Comments Another solid season saw them go into the final round with a chance of lifting the title.  However, a draw for them and a win for The Gladiators put pay to them lifting from 3rd place and they were overtaken by 5th placed Pawn Crackers on the final week.
SEASON 2008-2009     -     KING PAWNS
Players Vince Brady, Nick Edwards, Sam Fry, Richard Ledingham (Capt), Sean Lintott-White, Ian Pratley
Position Premiership - 4th out of 8
Comments A solid season of consolidation in the Premiership, they were the only team not to have anything to play for/against on the final week of the season.  They couldn't win the league and they couldn't go down.  An interesting mix of players, they were comfortable enough from the start not to be affected unduly by 3 defeats in the last 4 rounds.
SEASON 2007-2008     -     KING PAWNS
Players Toni Aspinall, Carolyn Barker, Delroy Bennett, Vince Brady, Matthew Cook, Richard Ledingham (Capt)
Position Championship - 2nd out of 8
Comments A new team formed by Daniel Gliddon and ably captained by Richard Ledingham, they won promotion as runners-up.  New signings will be needed if they are going to survive in the Premiership, but the squad was a good one for the Championship.
