Yorkshire League Results - Sunday 5 January 2020

Congratulations to Barnsley A who staged a magnificent fightback after a very poor start to claim a dramatic and unlikely 12 - 8 victory at home against Sheffield F.

Barnsley B also got off to a poor start away to Brighouse C and although they reduced the deficit by the end of the 3rd round the attempts of the team to rescue the situation in the final round sadly backfired and they were soundly and comprehensively beaten 20 - 0.

The next league games are on Sunday 26 January 2020 when both the A and the B team will be playing at home.



Following the Committee Meeting on Wednesday 20th November 2019

please be advised that drawing cards to decide seating positions will no longer be done.

Members will now be able to sit wherever they wish on a first come first served basis.

Provision will still of course still be made to accommodate our less mobile members with

North / South seating positions as has always been the case.

Monday Bridge

No partner is required, however you may not be able to play, unless you can be accommodated on a half table.

If you are looking for a playing partner on a
