Blighted by injuries but finished 3rd in division having beaten the division champions.  Thanks to all who helped out especially Alex Greaves from the 3rd team.


2nd Team Report – Jean


Finished 4th equal with Mawdesley.  Thanks to Phil W for covering as Captain.


3rd Team Report – Mark


Pleased with the season.  There was a good attitude and it was fun.  Reached the final of the Watkinson and thanks to all who came to support.


Match Secretary Report- Janet


The pre season meeting was helpful.  Division 8 had too many Friday matches but that comes from their position in the League.  Hope to be able to plan matches for half of the season at the start.  The end results are too slow being published to determine positions.
