The End of a Season, and the Beginning of a New One!

The Norfolk Brawds are gearing up for the start of a new season, keep an eye on our fixtures page for details of our upcoming games as they are scheduled!

But as we start the new season, it’s time for a little look back at the end of the last one.

We finished the year with our AGM, followed by our first ever Intraleague match. Our new role holders for 2015 were announced and you can find their contact details on our contact page if you need to get in touch.

There were some new additions for 2015, most notably the addition of coaches, captains and a bout co-ordinator for our newly formed B Team who will be up and bouting in 2015. If you’d like to play our B Team then get in touch with Becka Blocker Gorey to discuss it!

Once the awards were dished out and the buffet devoured it was time to start welcoming the public in for our first ever Intraleague bout between the Ouse Your Daddies and the Yare Yare Yares.

It was an exciting game, but the Ouse Your Daddies were the eventual proud winners of the Norfolk Brawds Christmas Cup!

We’re already looking forward to next years rematch!
