END OF SEASON REPORT

The Ladies league title, as expected, went down to the wire and the final match between Heversham and Slyne did not disappoint for excitement. Heversham went into the match, trailing by 2 points, thus requiring to defeat Slyne by at least 3 points. Heversham’s 6-3 victory gave them their first title since 2015. Top ladies on the night were Tessa Pemberton and Harriet Glaves who gained a maximum 4 points from their two matches to set up the win.

In the Men’s Division 1, Heversham again proved the dominant force finishing a comfortable 17 points clear of the opposition. In doing so, they won the title for a tenth consecutive season, breaking the previous record of nine achieved by Wanderers in the 1990s. Heversham captain Roger Aubrey said, “I am proud to be part of a team that has set a new league record and pay tribute to the many talented youngsters who have contributed to this success over the last ten years.” Runners-up were Slyne who edged out local rivals Lancaster by one point. North Lonsdale finished bottom and will now return to Division 2.

They will be replaced in Division 1 next season by Slyne A who took the Division 2 title by the narrowest of margins. Finishing joint top of the able with Bolton-Le-Sands on 83 points and identical records, the teams could only be separated by Slyne A winning more games in their two head to head matches.  At the other end of the table, Bowerham were unable to consolidate their promotion from last season and will now go down into Division 3.

Bowerham’s place in Division 2 will be taken by Lunesdale who took the Division 3 title by a comfortable 14 points from nearest rivals Burton.

The key matches in the Mixed Division 1 proved to be between Heversham and Slyne. In the last two years Slyne have held the upper hand, but this year Heversham were able to field their strongest team when it mattered most and won the crucial games to give them their first title since 2015. Relegation from Division 1 will be decided this week with Kendal requiring 4 points from their final match with Dalton to send Kirkby Stephen down.  The Mixed Division 2 title was settled many weeks ago with Kirkby Lonsdale taking the honours.
