After a torrid start to 2021 (p12, w3, l6, c3), when availability & team selection were badly affected by COVID & stretched the resourcefulness of captain, Patrick Hatcher & team manager & scorer, Stewart Davidson, it is a pleasure to report that the last 4 games played have been won.


Sat 17th July (h) Humshaugh (2nd), Sat 24th July (a) Hexham Leazes (11th), Sat 7th Aug (a) Haydon Bridge (5th) & Sat 14th Aug (a) Haltwhistle (4th) have all been defeated by a youthful side, who have climbed from 9th to 6th in WTL Division 1. David Cragg & Kush Agarwal are the only 'ever presents' during these 4 victories.


Each game has seen important contributions from many different players.
