We are happy to say that our team in this coming season will be known for the second season as the Staggs Bar Monarchs, sponsored by the famous award-winning Staggs of Musselburgh.

This was announced at tonight's Video Show on film (because he was working) by the ever-enthusiastic boss of Staggs Nigel Finlay. He said "I'm more than happy, last year was pretty monumental and hopefully this year will be more of the same.

Nigel was positive in his assessment of the team. "There's no reason why we can't be successful. I don't know much about Cameron Heeps but I've heard he is likely to be good, and Luke Ruddick is unknown to me as well, but I certainly believe we can make the top four."

Staggs Bar is a regular award winning pub, and is in the top four contenders for UK Pub of the year. "We made the top four which is more than Edinburgh did, but like the Monarchs we won the Scottish Championship so there is a wee connection there!

"Hopefully in this coming season we can go one better and the Monarchs can as well. I'm looking forward to the start of the season."
