Team Notes: First played in AAFC in 1986, and progressed to their
best year in 1990, when they narrowly missed the playoffs in the BNGL First Division.
Folded after a tough year in BNGL Premier Division in 1991. Actually started the 1992
season but folded at the end of June due to player shortages. Joined forces with Lincoln
to complete the season.
Youth team formed from the Bingham Bandits in 1988. Quote from one of their ex-Youth team
players, "They had the smallest black shirts ever which must have contributed to the
0-8 season in 88. By 89 (when I joined - as did six or so from Grantham who boosted
the squad) we set the league on fire - but mainly through our bright orange shirts which
we picked cos everyone else seemed to have black,red, white etc. We actually voted
for Tampa Bay orange, but they didnt have that. Two years later everyone had gone
for orange so at least we did something right."
