The Dyke Ladies Division 1 team played the Finals of the Sussex Inter Club Championships at Royal Ashdown Forest on Friday. Having last won Division 1 back in 2004, the team captained by Deborah James knew they were up against it facing a very strong Worthing side. With 3 County 1st team players and 2 County junior players playing, Worthing were clear favourites since the games are played off scratch. The Dyke team battled valiantly, but had to be content in coming runners up this year. With 30 clubs in this year’s Division 1 Championships, well done to the Dyke for making it to the finals.
