Well done to our Roundwood Regional team who finished in 4th place in the Regional London and South East Division 2 league. They won 6/14 games with lots of close results and good performances.

Shannon, the Regional captain, said: “This was a very mixed season for us, off the back of a season and a half with no competitive matches with normal rules. We had some fantastic wins and some disappointing losses, all of which gave us some learning points for next season. We finished middle of the table, which fortunately for us secured us a place in Division 2 again next season, whereas other teams that finished below us will be playing in the new Division 3. We are very much looking forward to next season; we have some strong teams in our Division so we’ll need to work harder than ever before!”
