The Final League Tables for Season 2011-2012 have been published. These have been triple checked, owing to the close position of some teams. Congratulations go to Airbus, Flint Phoenix A and Mold B as the respective winners of Divisions 1, 2 and 3. Well done also to Deeside, Ruthin A and Broughton who gained the runner-up spots in the Divisions. Commiserations to Rossett A, Connah’s Quay A, Denbigh B and Llangollen, who are the teams relegated. Positions were very tight in Division 1 and the relegation spots were only decided in the final match of the season. The position in Division 2 was much more clear cut. Ruthin B have the honour of propping up the whole League! However they earned themselves significant compensation by winning the Challenge Cup – on points!
Remember our Presentation Evening is on Saturday 5th May at Corus Sports & Social Club, starting at 7:30pm. Get your tickets (£10 each) from Jane Peace or Alan Bennett. It will be great to get members attending from all clubs.
