Congratulations to our two teams on outstanding performances on Sunday. Fantastic Foxes came 3rd overall and (because of the complex competition rules) 2nd in the main competition for the Peter Palmer Trophy. Flying Foxes came 5th out of the 22 teams taking part. This was a high quality performance against teams with several of the tops juniors in the country taking part.
Thanks to all the LEI members who turned out to help, especially Tracey and Andy for masterminding all the catering. Andy must be in line for the LEI golden pinny award!
