Over 60s League Games 2017

Saturday 9th September

Hi Everyone,

Here is our last league table for this season. We missed out on promotion by 1/2 point, a bit disappointing but still a massive improvement from the last couple of years where we were fighting to stay up, so well done to you all.

I would like to say a special thank you to Fred for doing all our teas for our home games, also thanks to Mike Pryce and Pete Roberts, for turning up early for most home games to put the rinks out, and last but not least, our team groupie Bernie Scofield, we all really appreciated his support.

Take care and once again well done.
