Report by Ben Cunningham:

Following the excitement of the Rossborough Mixed Leagues before Christmas attention now turns to the Rossborough Men's and Ladies Leagues, as well as the second part of the Mixed U15’s League. 

In the Rossborough Ladies Premier league, Valkyrs A play Castletown A. Both these teams had good seasons last year and will be hoping they can both get a good start this year. Elsewhere Bacchas A play Castletown B who got promoted to the premier league, this game will be a good test for Castletown B to see how they can play against a strong team like Bacchas A. Last year’s champions Vikings A kick off their campaign next weekend. 

In the Rossborough Men's Premier League, Bacchas B who were promoted to the premier league meet Valkyrs A who had a very good season last year. Up north Ramsey A play last year’s champions Bacchas A who will be wanting to keep their hands on the trophy again this year. Castletown A welcome Vikings A down south in what could be a close game.

In the Rossborough Ladies Division One, Valkyrs B play Vikings B both teams will be looking to get a strong start. Ramsey A who will be looking to get back into the Premier League play Bacchas B. Bacchas C who were promoted from Division 2 play Harlequins A who just missed out of promotion last season. 

In the Rossborough Mens Division One, Valkyrs B who will want to start the season with a win play Vikings B who will be looking to get back into the Premiership. Elsewhere there is an inter club derby between Harlequins A and Harlequins B who got promoted last year from Division 2. Vikings C kick off next weekend their season 

In the Rossborough Ladies Division Two, newly formed Castletown D meet Valkyrs C in what looks a close match up. Another newly formed Harlequins B welcome Ramsey B to the capital. The final game in this league sees Vikings C who missed out on promotion last year play Castletown C.

In the Rossborough Men's Division Two, Bacchas Colts who were runners up in this league last year play Castletown B who were relegated from Division 1 last year. Bacchas C will hope there experience will over come Ramsey B when they play each other this weekend. Newly formed Castletown C started their league campaign next weekend. 

Finally in the Rossborough Mixed U15’s, Castletown Sharks play Vikings, Bacchas meet Ramsey Rogues & Rascals and newly formed Valkyrs open their campaign when they meet Harlequins. Castletown Sabres kick off their season again next week.
