Royston Ladies 1st X1 withdraw:
  We have received a call from Royston HC, they report that during a training session last night a majority of the Ladies 1st X1 squad have decided not to play for them this season. The net effect leaves them with a very young club and the jump in standard from their 2nd X1 to their 1st X1 would not be fair, it is felt by the club, either for the remaining players or the opposition. After much deliberation we agree with their request and we hope that once Royston return to their Bassingbourn base, hopefully towards the end of the season, they will recover to the standards of yesteryear. The club have promised that they will contact each of their opposing clubs so that pitches and refreshments can be cancelled.
