Liverpool win the Div 2 Ladies Canoe Polo League

Firstly thank you all for all your help during the tournaments; reffing, helping with the goals, and doing the table (a shout out here is deserved to the man from Dolly’s who looked after the table single-handedly on Saturday).

Thank you also for your understanding with date and pool changes, I think this last tournament was a really good one in the end!

So, the final results are…. Liverpool in first place and Dolly Mixtures in second! Congratulations to both teams and I hope everyone enjoyed themselves during the league.

Liverpool 15 13 0 2 52 18 34 39
Dolly Mixtures 15 9 1 5 51 26 25 28
Durham Uni 15 8 0 7 36 31 5 24
Lancaster 15 6 2 7 43 38 5 20
MUCC 15 5 2 8 34 48 -14 17
Hallam 15 1 1 13 7 62 -55 4

Finally, I just want to advertise the Ladies Development weekend which is being ran in Liverpool in September. Any individuals can go of any level, there is no need to enter as a team.

Best wishes!
