Captain’s Report – Mixed B Season Review 2015-16

With both the Mixed A and B Farsley Badminton Leeds teams in the same division, the Selection Committee made a couple of strategic changes for the start of the new season with Paul, Steve and myself playing alongside Debs, Kirsty and Lynda for the B team.

Lynda and I renewed our partnership with previous seasons, Paul and Kirsty formed a new partnership and Steve and Debs continued from last season.

The first half of the season went better than expected with the side winning 5 from 6 matches losing only to Roundhegians B. The second half was much the same winning 6 from 8, losing again to Roundhegians and then to Leeds University.

The League was eventually won by Roundhegians, closely followed By Leeds University, then us with a bit of a gap to our A team, who won a creditable 8 matches only losing to the top three teams.

In the Semi Finals of the Handicap competition we were paired against a team from Division 2 and even after being awarded the handicap we were well beaten and outclassed!

My thanks go to all the members of the team for their support, without their commitment and dedication it wouldn’t be possible to move the club forward – John Palfreeman,¬†Mixed B Team Captain
