The 2009 season saw Scott Rowe take the Head Coaching role, now the clubs fifth head coach in as many years. Coach Rowe bought several other coaches to the team to join the existing coaches, namely Britball Legends Leroy Slue (Ex-London Ravens, Olympians and GB) and Clive Palumbo (Ex-London Capitals, Olympians, Farnham Knights and GB). They were also joined by Manny Oyewole, an Ex-Olympians player, and Stephen Ramos who had extensive coaching experience in the USA at high school level in California.

A host of new faces joined the team including Karl Waite, Kevin Newton, Jerome Cole (all ex-Olympians), Gareth Rees (UWE Bullets), Ashley Healy (Hertfordshire Hurricanes), Wesley Eversley, Tendai Trafford (both Greenwich Mariners) and Matt Luck (UEA Pirates).

The youth team also, once again, sent a good number of graduates up to the squad as Dave Bryant, Travis Bilham, Joe Beardwell and Gary Stewart made the step up to senior ball.

The year was going to be a tough one from the outset, with hugely experienced opponents, and the young pretender London Cobras in our division, but one that pre-season scrimmages with the London Olympians and London Blitz prepared the team well for. And the opening day victory against the Cardinals showed the potential the season had. A record-setting season ensued as offensive records were set with regularity as Aaron Griffiths, Clive Palumbo, Sean Starwind and Rich McHugh tore up the skies, ably assited by a swarming defensive side of the ball.

The games versus the Cats were highlights not just for the Exiles, but for the league in 2009, a combined 229 points in the two games, both being decided by 7 points or less, and splitting the series 1-1 meant for an exciting run in for the play-off places at the end of the year, and left the Exiles qualifing for the quarter finals as a wildcard courtesy of the final 7-3 record. This saw the only real dissapointment of the year as we crashed out to the strong, but beatable, Tamworth Trojans in a game the team did not perform at their best in.

The year also saw the Exiles awarded the John Slavin award, at both senior and youth level, after the season for their outstanding game day management.

The London Cobras went on to defeat the East Kilbride Pirates in the final. Once again the champions coming from our division!
