Hampshire Liberty Trophy team

Somewhat belatedly I have been sent the team for the Hampshire Inter-County quarter final match against Northamptonshire on Saturday 31st at the Northampton & District IBC at 12 noon. From Google maps, by road from Winchester, Northampton is 97 miles, so under the Liberty Trophy rules, as this is less than 100 miles (just) they are entitled to play the match at their home venue. Any support would be most welcome. Here is the team.


A good win for Palmerston men in the latest Bramley game

Well done to our men's team who won their match on Saturday 24th against Rushmoor 86 - 65 which brings them up to second place in the County Championship table. If we continue this form to the end of the season it will be the first time for some years that we have avoided yo-yoing between the Bramley league and Trisham leagues, so we are getting stronger. The leaders Atherley are well ahead and unlikely to be caught, but never say never.

You can see the latest results and table in the Competitions section.


NEW Honours Board section

There is a new section to the website - the Honours Board.

You must surely have noticed the Honours Board in the Club Restaurant. If not go and have a look next time you are in. This shows the champions of Club, National and County competitions.

On the Club's engraved board there are also sections showing Club Presidents and other officials. I will add another section to the website later with this information but for the present this website shows the bowling honours.

However there is more. I also show the runners-up who reached the final, which, even though they just missed out on the last game, is still a great achievement. They were able to collect their trophies at the presentation ceremonies and they are honoured here on our website honours board.

There is yet more. Make sure you examine the board carefully as you will discover that all the historic winners and runners-up are also there, going back to the first Palmerston finals in 1998.

I'd be most grateful if you let me know of any errors or omissions. Email me - see the address at the bottom of the page.
