New Season

We are considering a monthly 'friendly' game evening starting in September, possibly on a wednesday to avoid match clashes.

This season the second team was strengthened as a result of the knock on effect of a couple of new first team players. As a result we had a successful season, finishing third - we led the table for a large part of the season but only because we had played more games than the competition.
