The night included awards from 2021 and 2022/23. The Ladies first and second teams were champions in three divisions (summer and winter) and runners up in two. As a result the women's first team have won promotion into Division One for next season and Ladies 2 into Division Four.

The men's team won the 2021 Summer division and were promoted into Division Four where they were runners up, so will be promoted to Division Three next season.
