Oh dear...bit of a disaster in the first semi-final for Witney A disastrously losing 5-0 at a happy High Wycombe A. Excellent venue at the Cressex Community Club and a game played in very good spirits, as always with any Wycombe team. We were just rubbish unlucky! I do not have the aggregate to hand....

It was a genuine pleasure to travel to Rushden Conservative Club last night to watch the Final of the Inter Area NBBA Challenge Cup and present the awards. Many congratulations to Northampton A on winning the Cup for the first time after being involved for over 40 years. The Northampton league is one of the most progressive in the country and honours like this are richly deserved. A true testament to the efforts of the committee and the players. Their opponents last night, High Wycombe A were winners two years ago (and many times before) and were most sporting In defeat. Northampton won 3-2 at Wycombe and 4-1 last night to record an exceptional 7-3 victory overall. Thanks to Pete Farrelly, erstwhile Northants secretary, for presenting the magnificent cup to the winners.
The scores were;
