Now in its second year, Sussex Seniors have won the Seniors League and retained the Mulligan Larsen Bowl.  Congratulations to Team Captain Jo Galway and her players who have played this year.  It’s a team of six playing scratch match play, and the League has now grown to five counties, we played against Surrey, Kent, Middlesex and Essex.

We won by one point from Kent, which all hung on their last match so the Sussex squad were all watching with baited breath!  Click for full results Seniors League Results 2016
