The awards for the winning teams and runners up in the winter season, which came to a close on March 13, were announced at the league’s annual general meeting at Potters Resort in Hopton last night.

The winners of division one were Cliff Park Kestrels, who won all 12 games, followed by Cliff Park Eagles in second place. And the top spot in division two was won by Cliff Park Robins, who won all but one game, with Beccles Hawks announced as runners up.

The Kestrels also won last year’s summer league, with Draw Engineering in second place.

The final presentation of the night was the Linda Crisp Umpire Award, presented to Libby Gates who has recently passed her C Umpire Award. She was praised for being “helpful, fair and committed” to the league.
