This season’s trophy presentations took place at Fulford tennis club last week.
Victorious captains from the 2015 season…left to right, Louise Dwyer (DL1, div2), Kathryn Maude (York 1, div 1), Ann Murray (Dunnington 4, div 7), Lizanne Southworth (Bubwith 1, div 5), Gerry Screeton (Wilberfoss, Div 6) and Lorainne Waudby (Wig 1, div 3)
Bubwith 1 celebrated successive title wins by picking up the division 5 trophy. In the closest championship race, they took the title on games difference over Dunnington.
Wilberfoss, who have just missed out on promotion for the last couple of seasons, secured the division 6 title and were the highest games scorers in the league. David Lloyd will move up with them after finishing the season with a six match unbeaten run.
Copmanthorpe won the division 4 title so bounce straight back up after being relegated last season; they’ll be joined in division 3 by Tollerton, who finished only two points behind them. (Unfortunately the Copmanthorpe team were unable to attend the presentation evening – hence no photos!)
Wigginton claimed the division 3 crown, finishing just a point ahead of Cliffe.
David Lloyd will return to the top flight after just one season in division 2, claiming the title just ahead of Bishopthorpe who’ll join them in the top tier next season.
York 1 bagged their third division 1 title in a row and were the only unbeaten team in the league, Dunnington were runners up, losing only two matches to the champions.
Each division’s top games scorers were recognised at the presentations. They were Wendy Stirke (York 1) 401, Sheila Dixbury (David Lloyd 1) 274, Denise Crane (Wigginton 1) 315, Sandra Jennings (Tollerton) 311, Liz Bramley (Bubwith 1) 318 and Michele Helm (Wilberfoss) 417.
Michele Helm once again won the Terry Haw Trophy, given to the player that has won the most games during the season.
Dunnington 4 received the unofficial division 7 trophy, (as currently no division 7 this is given to the team that finishes top of the lower half of division 6, ie 5th!). They finished at the bottom last season so are on the way up!
