Team Captain: James Chalaby
Merton head into the 2017/18 academic year as the reigning Cuppers champions, a feat achieved in a nail-biting contest at St. John’s in Trinity 2017 watched by swathes of Merton fans, including several with banners. Last year’s No. 4 seed, James Chalaby, captains a squad that looks to be entering a re-building phase after the departure of the top 3 seeds, but it is nevertheless a squad that will look to make a deep run in Cuppers with plenty of strength in depth and strong team spirit.
