Ripon win first Northern League title

The Ripon club, who joined with the other NE clubs (apart from Alnmout and Bamburgh) to form a new (GC) Northern League, have won the competition following straight wins against all their opponents.

In order to avoid the extra complications of scheduling additional fixtures, the normal match results between the other clubs in Division 1 of the Croquet North GC League were used for the Northern League also, so the runners-up in the Northern League were Durham Bede.

Many congratulations to Ripon.
