Summer 2016 League report

Well done to all players and a heartfelt THANK YOU to all the captains for a very good summer season in the Northants, Banbury and OLTA leagues.  Final positions below but BIG congratulations to the Ladies A in Northants Div 2 – captained by Janet Sandford – and the Mixed A in Banbury Div 2 – captained by Steve Robinson on winning their respective divisions with resounding results.

Northants:
Mens A – Division 3 – 5th (out of 11 teams)
Ladies A – Division 2 – Winner
Ladies B – Division 3 – 3rd and unlucky to have been pipped to 2nd place with a very strong Roade winning the division

Banbury:
Mixed A –  Division 2 – Winner
Mixed B – Division 3 – 6th
Mixed C – Division 4 – 4th – excellent result with many new players and a triumphant 8-1 victory in their last game.

OLTA:
Mens A – Division 7 – 7th.  A difficult season due to player availability and having to repeatedly field different players – a total of 10 across the season.
Ladies A – Division 8 – 2nd. Narrowly beaten by Cholsey so fingers crossed for promotion!
Ladies B – Division 9 – 4th (out of 9 teams).  A great result with a number of ladies playing competitive matches for the first time
