Congratulations to Rufforth who clinched the Winter League title last night with a nerve dangling 37-35 over nearest rivals Boroughbridge, who were the only team left who could catch the pace setters. Rufforth have been very consistent and won all six fixtures to finish unbeaten with a 100 percent record. Boroughbridge need to beat Knaresborough next Tuesday to pip Wetherby 1 for second place now.
Last night’s winning team featured powerful men Ed Zieglar,far left in the Nike top and Tom Shoulsmith,above far right, who have been the main stay of the squad this term along with the impressive and always reliable and consistent Sue Yoward, seen above in black and orange. Christine Place completed the quartet seen in white. Captain Kate Lewis watched on nervously from the side lines last night as the team won without her to clinch a deserved crown.She is pictured below in a previous fixture.
