Have your say

They may be sat near the bottom of the league, but Royal British Legion A were celebrating success in the Melton Ladies’ Pairs knockout competition.

Christine Keightley and Maz Newton beat Holwell A’s Anne Creed and Angela Hardy in the final earlier this month.

In the semi-finals, the RBL A pair defeated Crown A, while Shoes B were dispatched by Holwell A.

In the Melton and District Ladies’ League, second-placed Crown A beat leaders the Plough 2-1 in the top-of-the-table clash.

Holwell A maintained the pressure on the top two with a 2-1 win at Shoes B who were leapfrogged at the foot of the table by RBL A after their 2-1 win at basement side RBL B.

Elsewhere, Blue Bell edged out Shoes A 2-1 in the mid-table clash.
