Thank you to those teams that attended the AGM & Presentation Night at Fairwater Conservative Club. It was an excellent evening with lots of strong debate and discussion to ensure the league continues to improve.

Nine teams sent at least one representative, but we were disappointed not to have attendees from Cuesaders, Mackies Lost Boys, Rumney British Legion and Taff’s Well A.

The CDSA would like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsors Sugar Creative Studio for their continued support, as it has allowed for the investment in two new annual trophies for the Cardiff Open Pairs and Cardiff Handicap Singles, both of which have been engraved to include all the winners on the league’s Roll of Honour dating back to the 1983-84 season.
