Hull & East Riding v. The Rest of the World

(actually, v. only Ilkley Dragons and Rose Forgrove B)

 

On Saturday 27/01/2024, Hull & East Riding hosted two matches at Anlaby Park Community Library, The Greenway, Anlaby High Rd, Hull:

Hull & East Riding A v Ilkley Dragons in the Woodhouse Cup and Hull & East Riding B v Rose Forgrove B in the I. M. Brown.  David Mills was on hand to take photographs amongst other things, which are interesting in two ways: you can see what people you know well but have not seen for years, and you can see people who in recent times you have come to know but in name only.

 

After these matches, both won by the home team, Hull & ER stand in second place in both Woodhouse and I. M. Brown, in each case trailing by only one match point with a further three match to play, whereafter double celebrations or disappointment in a slough of despond are both on the cards for Hull & ER!

 

Here follow the sixteen photographs submitted.
