Round five of  the British League  Premier Division has been completed and the leaders Drumchapel Glasgow have all but guaranteed that they will retain their title.

As winners, we were automatically nominated for the Essex Community Club of the year, and last week, live on BBC Essex Radio, we picked up that award too. We now go forward to the Eastern Region award ceremony in December in Newmarket. If by some miracle we were to win that, we would go through to the flagship BBC Sports Personality of the Year awards live on TV.
