While Finals glory is special, the amazing contribution from everyone in our Club to complete a largely un-interrupted season is the best result of the season. So well done and thank you to every Team and support crew that played this year irrespective of where you came in the Competition table.

Junior Club Championship

A great to win the Junior Club Championship for the 2nd time in succession. Prior to last season the last time we won this Trophy was way back in 2008/09. What makes this special is that after our win in 2008/09 the Association changed the points allocation to make it almost impossible for a large Club to win the Award to level the playing field with smaller Clubs. This win is the result of high percentage of our Teams our ‘finishing high in the order. Our Participation over Results’ policy over many years that has made this possible by strengthening all Teams and supporting it with extensive coaching.
