Officials and players expressed their appreciation to the Lindley club for the use of their excellent facilities, refreshments and for the hospitality shown by members.

Reps should note that Six-man Team fixtures in the Over 80s and Over 70s have been transposed for May 27 and June 10. They should instead refer to the 10-man fixtures on the previous page of the handbook.
