Halifax B Champions

What an exciting climax to the season for Halifax “B” who play in Division 2 of the Hebden Royd Vets. In their last game of the season they had to win all their games against Crow Wood Park, to be in with a chance of winning the league. They had to rely on Ripponden to have two winners in their last home game against Hill Crest “B”, the leaders of the League.

Hill Crest “B” had previously emphatically beaten Halifax “B” twice in their league games.

Halifax, against all odds beat Crow Wood 8-0 and Hill Crest won at Ripponden 6-2, for Halifax to take the title with a superior points difference.

David and Barbara Gee finished 1st and 2nd in the averages.

Next season both the “A” and “B” teams will play in Division 1.
