Well done to all our Strugglers Ladies and Gents who helped us undertake our first season in the Westward League, which I'd guess you'd describe as the 'Premier' League of its type in the South-West, regardless of terrain type. It's been a bit of a learning curve but I think I can say unequivocally that everybody enjoyed it (although none of the men enjoyed the start-line pelting we got from the weather yesterday...). We even managed to get teams out of 'the Shire' to the Newquay ...

In a close battle with Bideford AC the eventual winners of the Vet Men competition 2016 were the South Molton Strugglers.  They got off to a strong start winning the first 2 rounds in style, but as if only to make the contest exciting Bideford bounced back taking rounds 3 and 4.  So it all came down to the final round on Bideford's home turf, both teams neck and neck on 44 points. Ultimately the gap at the end was just 4 seconds but Steve Abel got the job done on the final leg lead...
