Welcome to the 2016/17 Season

The season starts on Sunday 2nd October, once again at Prestwold Hall.

Over the last few weeks we’ve had a lot of questions from teachers and parents.

This will make it easier for you to find your way around the site and also to prepare for the season ahead.

If you have any queries about the league or this web site, please fill in the form at the bottom of this page.
