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
