2019 Review

We represented the handicap league in this year's Youth Shield. The team and players all played very well playing against excellent opposition. Notably, James Stanley and Sam Pepper had excellent campaigns.

In 2020 we should have a stronger side in both competitions and we look forward to taking part.

2020 Fixtures Coming Soon
