Durham and District Triples
Congratulations Darlington! This year we entered a team into this league for the first time and we won! The start of our last game against our rivals for the league Aycliffe, saw us sat one point ahead. The game was close all the way through and the overall final score was tied. Darlington won one, lost one and drew one and with the long point draw we won the league. It couldn’t have been any closer than that. Well done to everyone who played across all of the fixtures, you were all instrumental in our win.
Durham and District Ladies Triples
Darlington Ladies came second in this league, narrowly losing out on first place to our close neighbours Aycliffe. We were tied on points and the winner was decided on shots. This is the first year this league has operated and teams were from Darlington, Aycliffe, Durham and Ferryhill. Well done to everyone who played in this league this year. Hopefully we can go one better next season.
