PLAY OFF WEEK END
The 2008/2009 season was a tough and demanding one, our club side respoded well to adversity and fought through to the Play off's being held in Seffield this year.
A superb result saw the mixed senior team come away with the bronze medal in the First division a wonderful result for one of the few teams with a predominately female line up.
The Women's team came away winners for the SIXTH year in a row another outstanding result.
All in all a truly outstanding result this year for our Club side.
