In 2008 a band of Frisbee vigilantes took an oath to revolutionise and dominate the indoor game and to never play a quarter final sober. In 2010 they succeeded.
UK Indoor National Champs
UK Mixed Indoor National Champs
Mix and Mingle Champs
With home advantage at UK Nationals, DiscMen were able to sweep aside their old foes Old Skool (twice) and romp to victory in the final against Fully Charged (losing finalists 3 years in a row….ouch). The home crowd went wild! The mixed season brought more silverware as DiscMen once again taught everyone in Sheffield how to win, party and generally live their lives. We went in to Mixed Nationals as favourites and did not dissappoint. Bears were the opponents in the final and we knew they would be tough after fighting out a draw against them on the first day. Bears went up by 3 with 6 minutes to play but swift offense and cool heads brought the game to Sudden Death. DiscMen forced a turnover and sealed the win and a double National championship. Undefeated in 2010.
Add to these victories Far Flung dominance at mixed uni nationals and the spectacular arena that is Toryglen, it is no wonder why Glasgow is now regarded as the spiritual home of indoors. Lately we have competed indoor tournaments as Glasgow, but the heroes and villains of DiscMen are still out there, waiting for a time when the world needs them again…
NBD are a collective bunch of Glasgow scallywags that formed a team to compete in UK Womens Indoor Nationals. They finished 2nd. No big deal…
Fusion are Scotlands elite open team made up from the top players around the country including several from Glasgow. In 2008 the squad split into two separate teams (East and West) in order to expand our numbers and promote player development. In 2009 the move paid off with a top 8 finish at Euros.
2010 and Fusion faced another challenge to rebuild. Star players had left for the big lights of London and it was up to a small core of accomplished veterans and talented rookies to carry the torch. Though the light shone dim during another inconsistent tour season (8th, 5th, 10th), the flame ignited as Fusion once more impressed at UK Nationals and EUCF in Spain. Fusion took a squad of 10 players to UK Nationals in Southampton, finally got a victory over Brighton for the first time that season, topped their group and earned a place in the live broadcast semi final against Chevron. A brave Fusion performance but Chevron took a lead just before half and managed to hang on to it. This was followed by a sudden death loss to Fire and another victory over Brighton to secure a place at European Championships for the 5th year out of 6. Day 1 of EUCF Spain again exposed inconsistencies in a team that had barely trained together. Crushed by Skoggs, an overwhelming victory over Feldrenner and a narrow defeat against the Fins was enough to put Fusion through to the quarters in a 3 way tie. Quarter final opponents Freespeed found it hard to make their athleticism count against an energetic Fusion squad, but in the end they made a couple less mistakes. Fusion eventually finished 8th, matching the performance of 2009. The tournament also spawned the inaugural annual Fusion scavenger hunt and fish fight. Fusion MVP 2010 was won by Shaun Webb.
Fusion are already preparing for 2011 with a more focused attitude on training and development that should see this talented squad finally fulfill their potential and probably win Nationals.
Trials will begin in February.
