WINTER LEAGUE. A very bad day for the team, playing away at the Emerald Isle they came away with nil pois! Three teams looked good but fell at the last hurdle…maybe everyone needs a break and a lay down to recharge their batteries!

The Berleen also lost. Shots V.B 69 (0) – 100(12) E.l. Well done to the Emerald Isle, two more matches to play and as we’re not going to win the league let’s just enjoy…but get a decent result!

For the FED 4’s home match v the Emerald Isle it was the Isle that went away with their tails between their legs, well done to the Vikings a good win to end the league. Shots VB 62(8) – 37(0) EI.
