Janet Goody 
We are saddened to hear the news that Janet Goody (a very long term League Manager for the EWL Women's Premier Division) has passed away. Janet was at the forefront of the combining of the East Men's and East Women's League committee's into a single entity and was admired by both clubs and her fellow committee members for her sincere and common sense approach in dealing with problems. She will be sadly missed. Details of her funeral will follow on the East Leagues web page.
