Sunday March 30th at 11:00
Doncaster B Team got off to a great start to the 2013-14 season in division 3 having been relegated from Division 2 last year. The first round of matches were held on the 8th December at the York Railway Institute in York.
The Doncaster Team was made up of Richard Mellors, Ben Harrison, Richard Gutteridge, Rosie Riley, Andrea Walker, Gill Ross, and Rob Lindop.
Doncaster beat Horsforth and Bridlington convincingly in the opening matches of season. The next round of matches took place at York RI again on Sunday 26th January and the results (still to be filed officially) saw Doncaster win one match 6-3 but lost the other one 7-2. Match reports to follow.
Other results are:
East Leeds B v East Leeds C 6-3
Clifton B v York RI 4-5
Harrogate B v Bridlington B 6-3
Doncaster B v Horsforth 6-3
East Leeds B v Clifton B 7-2
York RI B v East Leeds C 4-5
Doncaster B v Bridlington B 7-2
Harrogate B v Horsforth B 8-1
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.
