I moved to the village of Adderley in late spring 2014 along with my wife Lois. We used to live in Altrincham south Cheshire but wanted the more peaceful life in the country, after spending six years cruising around the Mediterranean on our yacht.
I spent my professional career working in the engineering sector as a Operations Manager and Lois was an ex Head teacher who ended up as head of Special Educational Needs for Knowsley coucil.

Adderley A Team finished the season on Wednesday 6th September with another win over Woore to clinch the title for the 5th consecutive year. In winning the league 7 players from the team finished in the top 10 of the league averages. Well done to all the team, congratulation must also go to the B & C teams who have also had a good season, especially when they have lost players when the A team needed support due to absentees.
Special thank to our captains, Alan Boulton, Alan Hodgson and Wendy Icke
