Breezers

The Ladies League will have eight teams in it for the forthcoming season which is one less than last season as Breezers have not entered.

Breezers were formed in 1999 and played their home matches at the Top Shots Pool Club on a Tuesday night. The team was initially called Top Shot Breezers and in their debut season won the Ladies Section B title winning 22 of their 26 matches.

Breezers debut season in Ladies Section A saw them playing on alley 2 at the Trinity Club on a Tuesday. A ninth place finish in their first season was followed by relegation in 2002 as they finished bottom of the table.

The next five seasons were spent in Section B until they finished top in the 06-07 season.

For the 07-08 season Breezers moved to the Colliton Club playing on alley 2 on a Tuesday. Their early days at the Colliton saw them relegated from the top section but then promoted straight back as runners up in 2009.

Back in the top section Breezers were to become one of the top ladies teams winning the Ladies Plate in 2010 followed by their finniest achievement  a year later when they won the Ladies Cup Final against Oakettes, a season that saw them finish third in Section A, their best finish.  They were now known as Colliton Breezers and the team appeared in two more Plate finals in 2012 and 2015 but both times they were to finish as runners up.

Breezers returned to the Trinity Club in 2017 on alley 1 and then a switch to alley 2 the following year. Last season they were back on alley 1 but it was a tough season for Breezers both on and off the alley as they struggled for a team and finished bottom of the Ladies League.

The Breezers were certainly one of the more colourful teams in our league, always full of fun whether they were playing their games or entertaining us at the end of season Presentation Evenings in their fancy dress outfits.

Thank you ladies.
