East Pennines League 2015

Middlesbrough are the winners this year. Both Middlesbrough and Tyneside had two match wins, but Middlesbrough won more games. So Middlesbrough will be the Croquet North representatives in next year’s Secretary’s Shield.

24 players took part in the league this year. Teams were evenly matched with regard to handicap as it was not required to play any games under advanced handicap rules.
