TVH top the points and league tables after Leigh

Sunday 9th June 2019 saw a rare occasion in which our UKWAL women’s team and BAL men’s team got to compete side by side in Leigh. This gave a glimpse of the future National League which will see the amalgamation of the men and women’s team in future years. For us this is an exciting time, as Leigh demonstrated that we can be stronger together!  Both teams finished the day topping the points table and their retrospective leagues! We displayed depth across the board scoring consistently high in both A and B strings. The day also saw a number of PB’s, which clearly shows there is more to come from our team.
