3 of the 6 Senior teams were promoted over the weekend.

3 of the 6 Senior teams were promoted over the weekend.

- Men's 1st XI promoted to Division 1
- Men's 3rd XI promoted for the second year on the trot, to Division 6
- Women's 1st XI were Div 2 South winners so are promoted, for the second year on the trot and will be playing in Div 1 next year (a great birthday present for one of their umpires, Chris Price)

Our men's 4th XI was so close to promotion, too... Our women's 2nd XI (a new team this year, comprising all U18s) were runners up in Div 3 South - a great achievement

Congratulations and thanks to everyone involved - captains, players, coaches, scorers, umpires and, of course, Barney, our groundsman. Thanks, also, to the many supporters at the club over the course of the season. And a special thank you to Tula, who held a bake sale to raise funds for the club on Sunday afternoon.
