"Thank you for organising such an enjoyable League for Lichfield and Burntwood. I have completed all of my matches (unable to get any response from one entrant), lost them all but had some great games. Everyone in the League played the sport in the spirit it should be, competitive but friendly. I will not be able to enter the winter League but will be back in the Spring of 2017. Once again, thank you,"

Lorraine Saunders
