League began 17th September, all players and spectators are very welcome
Week 1 matches have now been completed and it seems most teams and players are happy with the scoring and merit points system, obviously like ourselves, we are not happy with how many points we currently have but is very early days.
A fine win today for the Old Hultonians pairing of Kevin Pickavance and Carlton Caterall, beating the usual hotshots pairing of John Mort and Brian Lawton to 6. However that's as good as it got for the Old Hults.
The league is being led by Roy's Boy's and the Wasps, who have stung both of the home teams this week. A fine win also today for the Bandits who beat a strong looking Plodders team. All the while though Doe Hey continue to amass points on a consistant basis.
Looking forward to the resumption of play on Monday 1st October(Tuesday 18 September 2018)
