York Gardens B are the first Summer league Champions
In what turned out to be a surprise final week of the Summer League York Gardens B (pictured above L-R Waqar Hussain, Mike Noble, Yasar Ahmed and Adeel Ahmed) came from nowhere to snatch the title off of rivals and team mates York Gardens A and Red Spiders. York B beat Loopers with a convincing 8-2 score line with a strong squad of Waqar Hussain, Cain Fagan (covering for Adeel Ahmed) and Yasar Ahmed. For Loopers it was Doug Taucher, David Paez and Mike Nash with 1 win each for Doug and David over Yasar. Then on the following night they secured the title with a 9-1 victory over York Gardens D using the same team of players. This gave them 52 points to York Gardens A who had 50 points after they managed a 6-4 win over Red Spiders who finished 3rd in the league on 47 points with St Pauls 4th on 42 points.For full league table CLICK HERE
