Western League

Eight counties play in the League stretching from Herefordshire to Cornwall.

It's always good to put something back into a game by representing your country or county so here's your chance.

Four of the matches are "away" and three "home". Playing once is quite acceptable.

Last season we did not do well so we want to improve (actually there's only one way to go) and do ourselves justice. We've done it before so we can do it again.

As ever our organiser of the Western league is Diana King.

Wiltshire members interested in being selected should contact Diana at [email here] for further information.
