UK Women’s League

The ladies team travelled overnight for a match at Chelmsford however with a very weakened team due to various reasons they finished last in 8th place. It wasn’t for the want of trying by the ladies who competed.

More must turn out for the next two matches otherwise we will be destined to be relegated when we worked hard to be promoted last year.

Results are HERE.
