Falcons Women’s teams completed an outstanding season with both Div 1 & Div 3 teams finishing well in their respective divisions. Div 3 Saker faced a talented group of teams, but held their own with a strong returning side of senior players, bolstered by a few new, but highly talented young juniors. Div 1 Comp, coached by David Littlewood, finished with an outstanding undefeated record clinching both the League Div 1 Trophy as well as the Play-off Div 1 Championship Plaque. Well done ladies!!
