On Saturday 19th March 2016 the majority of the clubs from the WRL came to Aldershot to compete. Competition levels seemed higher this year than previous seasons with second place only decided in the final match of the league. The matches were followed by a social and awards evening where the trophies were presented. MVPs for each club were as follows:
Congratulations go to Bristol Thunder for winning again and to Southampton Spartans for retaining their Promo place. We wish Thunder luck in the National Playoffs. Well done to WKA clubs for competing so well and coming back strongly from last season. Also it was great to see OKA enter only full club sides this season and commendable that the first Oxford City-only team only narrowly missed 2nd place.
Thanks to all the referees for taking the time out to ref the matches and to all the supporting roles who ensure matches run smoothly.
And finally a BIG thank you to Andy Nye for organising the whole league this season - fixtures, Super Saturday, results entry etc. Great job!

Bristol Thunder 29 v 11 Basingstoke Bulls
Basingstoke Bulls 22 v 3 Cardiff Raptors Korfball Club
