Turner said: “We are delighted to have done so well over the year. With our other teams, two have come a very close second. We are lucky to have a good number of players who are keen to play and enjoy it.

“We quite often put out people who have never played together before, rather than sticking to a set four, so are even more pleased we have done well and are looking forward to a good winter season. So far we are leading the ladies and lying second in the veteran mixed so things are looking good – but all could change.”
