Well, I was going to wait until after the final match, but as
The Magician has started the ball rolling (a bit like the
mis-kicked drop out in the NL1 final) I'd like to add my
thanks to Gordon and the team for all the effort they have
put in. It's been a lot of fun, as always.

This older contributor hasn't the faintest idea what you're
talking about either.

A trundle was a wooden wheel and one propelled it along with a stick,
running alongside it, a childs toy, my father once told his school that he
was absent on a particukar day because his trundle was broken.

I knew that!

...from Old English "trendel", to roll, heavily or clumsily, along

But I`ll bet you never knew that a "trundle-tail" was a curly-tailed dog.

I`ll get me plaid, and trundle off now....

I know what a trundle wheel is, but I still don't understand the saying.

Sometimes keeping things going on here can be hard. Especially on
Friday nights if needing to rush along the East Lancs to Knowsley
Road. However, mostly this is a labour of love. We love this sport and
this competition has become something of a legend and tradition. Its
good to keep it alive. Next year we have some revamping to do with
seven tips a weekend instead of the usual six. Also we now have 14
teams instead of the normal 12. Lots more major upsets and results
totally against the tipping trend I think!

Many thanks to the regulars who keep this league alive. This year we
have had 46 tipsters who have taken part at some time or other with
tips. Of those 27 tipsters remembered to submit their tips every one
of the 27 rounds of this seasons Super League. We get tips sent from
around the world, with St. Dave's being sent from Australia each week.
We also get tips often left in advance before going on holiday.

Lets hope the Grand Final sees the season off with a bang. Provided
its a Saints win of course!! See you all again next season and best
wishes for the new year!!

I can assure Arthur Pye I am not a 'little' helper. I am more what you
might call slighty rounded, almost 'whoateallthepies' type helper!!
