Doncaster B Results


Doncaster B had a disappointing day at York Railway Institute on Sunday the 23rd of February

This was the third outing for the Doncaster team at this venue in the Yorkshire League
Regrettably we could only field two ladies despite the number of ladies usually available to play
Inevitably having to concede three of the nine games before the match starts put the team on the back foot
Doncaster lost both matches to 7-2 which now means they have moved from 3rd position to 7th.
The current table of teams is as follows
TEAM                 Rubbers       Points
East Leeds B              42                   16
Harrogate B               34                   13

Match Report – Bessacarr BC v Sprotborough “A” BC


Match Report
Bessacarr BC v Sprotborough “A” BC
Venue – Hungerhill School
Date – Tuesday 28th Jan 2014

Although the final score was 9-0 to Bessacarr BC it doesn’t reflect how closely fought the match was. Sprotborough put up a spirited fight from beginning to end.
Budd and Purdy, a much improved pair, took all their games to 3 whilst Wassell and Cusworth took 2 of their games to 3. Sprotborough is a much improved team this year have stayed in the first division for 2 consecutive years now.Hopefully they will make that 3 consecutive years and raise their game even further.
