Presentation Night

Forty seven people attended representing 14 of our 19 teams.

In the Plate Final Squigglers could not quite make up a 19 point handicap despite 17 from Barry Marshall so the winners were Bispham Farmers Arms 73-67.

In the Don Liptrot Trophy Final Rugby Hounds had caught up a 19 point handicap by the end of round 7. Round 8 was drawn, so an extra round was played which Legion Lions won, giving a final score of 67-65. David Hodgson scored 21+3 for the losers.

The trophies were presented by Jim Maloney, now of Newburgh Lions, who played for two of our strongest teams Old Dog and Rex Lions since joining the league in 1979.
