Our First Team - the A-team

STOP PRESS!  For the 2017 - 2018 we are not fielding an A-team in the Stockport League, and all its fixtures have been cancelled.  There were two reasons for this decision being taken.  Firstly, we would have had two teams playing in the League's 2nd division, since the B-team continues in that division and the A-team had been relegated from the first division after a season without a win.  Secondly, and more significantly, several of our regular A-team players moved to other clubs or were affected by illness early in the season.  The situation will be reviewed at the AGM in May 2018, when we will decide how many teams to register for the 2018 - 2019 season.

If you are a strong player, with a grade of 140-150 or higher, and would enjoy playing for a team which seeks promotion to the 1st Division, please join us!   We really need three players in this category to re-start the A-team next season.
