So the winter league is finally over, and this has been probably one of the most difficult winter leagues we have ever had, with us dropping a B team, leaving us with an A, C and D team, and then having lots of matches that needed to be rescheduled due to inclement weather. That being said we have done fairly well this winter. Here are the results
The A team finished a respectable 3rd place with only 1 point difference between the division 1 leaders Devizes and Purton, who finished 2nd place on set difference. The final match between our A team and Purton A was the decider where we would finish. If we'd won 6-2 or better we would've finished 1st, 5-3 would've seen us with 2nd place, but as we drew at 4-4 we ended up in 3rd. So it was all to play for right up until the very end!
The C team did fantastically in division 3 finished 1st with just 1 point more than 2nd place Great Bedwyn A. This should secure promotion next year to division 2. The C team only dropped 24 sets out of 96 sets played, which is miles better that 2nd place Great Bedwyn A.
Finally on to the D team. Unfortunately it really wasn't D teams year finishing bottom of division 5 with 0 points. This will likely see our D team demoted to division 6 next winter.
Well done to all teams for a great effort, especially to the C team with that fantastic victory, I look forward to seeing us hold the division 3 trophy at the next league AGM.
