Rayleigh Town wins Division 1!

We enjoyed a fantastic summer of (mostly) glorious weather, shooting 5 very successful matches against our neighbouring clubs, along with a relaxed and useful ‘friendly’ against Malgrave, and culminating in a tense, thrilling grand finale at Runwell where we had the two remaining matches of the league running side-by-side.

Congratulations to the Rayleigh Town Senior Team for achieving 3rd place in Division 1! This year’s action saw some first-rate shooting with a few PBs and very narrow margins against tough competition, often in challenging weather. We should be proud to have made the top three teams in the County!
