STOOLBALL: By winning our penultimate game against Adastra on July 19, we became Mid Division League winners for 2018. Barcombe 150 for 4 in 15 overs, Adastra 129 all out in 14 overs. The team have won every match this season, just one to go on July 24 away to Plumpton. As League winners we will play the winners of East Division on August 26 in the League Championship semi-finals. Our juniors won their last match of the season against Bluebells. One of our juniors was selected by Stoolball England to play at Worth in Surrey. The seniors have had a very successful season and the juniors are beginning to make their mark in this Sussex based game which we all enjoy. Thank you for reading our Stoolball news and I will do one more update in September.
