Ladies 2nd Team to be crowned Div 5 Champions!

The club can enjoy the success of the Ladies 2nd Team as they gain promotion to Division 4 of the Fulford Ladies Invitation League this season. Captain Vicky Wrigley led her squad to an impressive 21 points from a possible 24 and ensured that with a 7 point clear advantage over second placed New Earswick, promotion was never in doubt! The opening game against Dunnington proved to be a tense encounter ending in a draw but other than an out of character defeat to Riccall away later in the season, the team never looked like easing off in their pursuit of the title. The squad lost players to support a depleted 1st team most weeks but always ensured the quality was there to secure the win each week. Squad management was key and by utilising strong 3rd Team players to bolster the side as needed, the points kept adding up.  Vicky was expertly supported by the experienced Carole Withers and with new comers Clare McMahon and Anna Lewis stepping up during the season, the squad look well placed to make a big impact on Division 4 next year. Mother and Daughter, Kate and Anna, enjoyed their first competitive season together and were the 2nd highest partnership in the division. Well played to all who contributed throughout the season and thanks for the continued support provided by Wendy Farnell (3rd Team) and Sue Yoward (1st Team) to ensure that the right players were always available to get the right result!
