An outstanding year perhaps our best todate
A great year not only winning the Knight League Div.2 and promotion to Div.1 but by finishing third in Clegg League we have gained promotion to Div.1 in that league also. Performance not so good in the Nines League finishing 9th out of eleven
County Championship Programme.
Many of our members took part in the county programme playing in a number of singles and doubles matches without success. I’m sure they will try again next year.
County Jubilee Cup Success
