The newly formed Ladies threes team played against Worthing twos at 10:30am. The home match began with the side having 11 players on pitch after a slight goalie mishap.

A special thank you to Hamish Marr who not only captained the mens twos team, but took time out of his Saturday to umpire both ladies twos and ladies threes matches. Thank you Hamish!
