What Northerns Goodwood Cricket Club chairman Jason Wright said
“We were in a bit of a relegation battle in the WPCA first division A, but managed to avoid going down in the end,” said Wright.
“It’s worth noting that, at the end of the season, the winner of the league had 62 points and we had 49. So that’s only about three games away from competing for the league title. The first division A was very competitive this past season.
“We put a few new youngsters into our first and second XIs. They found it challenging. We can build on this next season.”
