There were some changes to the team during the season with Lewis leaving for the Falklands, Ben Cox joining the team and immediately playing very well reminding us how good a player he is, Andy and James played most of the games and without them it would have been difficult to maintain the numbers needed to field a team. Thank you to all the team members for the commitment and dedication during the season.
2016/17 was a difficult season for the ‘A’ team with several disappointing results notably a 6-4 win at Paston when an 8-2 win should have been the result. An 6-4 win at home to Eyebury highlighted the weaknesses in the team although it must be said Eyebury played very well that night. A 4-6 loss at Ramsey was the worst result of the season.
For comparison in 2016 the team scored four x ten/nil results , in 2015/2016 ten x ten/nil scores were recorded. In the latter part of the season the team were resigned to second place in the league, behind Paston, when out of the blue at their penultimate game, Paston lost 10-0 at Northborough and handed the league to North Luffenham.
In other competitions the team won the Annette Stubbins cup beating Paston in the final. North Luffenham teams won the North Cambs area singles, pairs, triples, and fours competitions. In county competitions Jason won the Hertfordshire singles with Jack runner-up. Thomas , Jack and Jason won the Hertfordshire triples and this qualified them to represent Hertfordshire at the national finals in County Durham which they also won and they are the current Nation Triples Champions, well done them! Paul won the Cambridgeshire singles competition and went on to win the Eastern Counties Competition.
