Daventry v Leicester 56-103
With new caps in evidence in the Daventry squad expectations were not running high. Our opponents, Leicester IBC, were expected to be strong and so it proved with an overall winning result of 103 –56 points. However, this should not overshadow the fact that Daventry did end up with a winning rink (21 – 20) and we should take some encouragement from that.
Welcome and hats off to Leicester who joined the Midland Region this year and were worthy winners”.
