Some great performances over the season and a consistently good turnout from the club meant Queensbury took 3rd team place in the 1st 4 to count beating much larger clubs such as Stainland Lions & Horsforth Harriers, something everyone can be proud of achieving. Queensbury was 6th place in the ‘All to count’ highlighting how many points we have picked up for a small club. Well done to everyone and look forward to another good season next year.
