Fylde Mens Division 2
The 1st Fylde men’s team won back promotion to Division 1 as Champions after a number of strong performances by Ben and Jonathan Churchman, John Waddicor, Joe Dewhurst and Thoma & Michael Luke amongst others. Next year looks like it could be a bit more challenging – can Goosnargh win the Fylde league for the first time in their history? St Anne’s may have something to say on that front….
Fylde Inter-Club Knockout
For the third successive year, Goosnargh won the Fylde Inter-Club Knockout! This competition involves a men’s singles, ladies singles, men’s doubles, ladies doubles and a mixed doubles match. Representing Goosnargh in this year’s competition were Liz Russell, Fran McNeela, Angela McNeela, Heather Churchman, Sue Liver, Michelle Watts, Laura Blomley, John Waddicor, Joe Dewhurst, Michael Luke, Adam, Ben and Jonathan Churchman. It’s a great competition and a real achievement that a club the size of Goosnargh can do so well.
