The season finished just before the Easter break. There were no winners this season, the A Team did best with runners up in Division 1, B were 3rd in Division 2, C were 6th in Division 3 and D were 8th in Division 4. In the cups we were all robbed as usual. 🙂 Thanks to all the captains for looking after their respective teams over the season.
