Match Reports

Each week the Courier includes the LDBSA league tables, and some "copy", describing the matches that took place that week.

It is hoped that each Home captain will take the responsibility to arrange to get a few comments about the match, in the Other Comments section when submitting the on-line Score, or by sending it to reports@ldbsa.co.uk
