Senior League Tables Update

With the week break for Round 1 of the Challenge Cup, I have taken the opportunity to update the Senior League Tables.  Tables include all matches played so far this season.  It is still early days, but there are some pointers to teams who will be challenging for top spot/promotion at the end of the season and those that are likely to be fighting hard to stay up.  See where your Team is positioned……


Volunteers Needed

Jane Liddle

I run Castell Alun Junior Club on a Wednesday night from 6.30 until 8.30. I would very much appreciate some help from coaches and assistant coaches out there. I don’t expect anybody to commit to weekly coaching but would ask whether anybody could volunteer now and again, even on a one-off basis, to deliver a session either to our beginners or our intermediate kids. My contact details are on the officials/contacts list. Thanks. Jane Liddle
