Team Competition News
In the last season our A Team stayed in Division 5 with two wins, two draws and three defeats, finishing in 5th place. Our B Team also stayed in their division, Division 6, despite winning just two matches with the other five matches being lost. This depended on a good win on the final day to secure safety in 6th place. Following promotion the previous season our C Team struggled to cope in Division 9, losing all but their final match to finish last and will hope to do better next season on their return to Division 10. Our D Team won three matches, with one draw and three defeats, to finish in eighth position in Division 10, a division unusually comprising thirteen teams. This was just high enough to secure their place in Division 10 again next season, when a new Division 11 has been created.
