  Northern Bridge League

The first match of the NBL season took place on Saturday 1st August. Westmorland was represented by 16 players from Kendal.

The B division team made a slow start but finished a respectable 5th out of 8 with 68 out of 140VPs (48.6%)

The C division team results were disappointing. Having said that Brian Smith and Tim Harrison had a good session - they have played for the county on only 2 occasions and have done well both times.
