It is worth noting that success in the playing area has followed since, in 1986/87, the A" team won promotion to Division 1 of the
N.G.F.L. after many years in Division 2. Though relegated the following year, they bounced back 1988/89 and held their place at the
end of that season. Such success, together with the improved facilities on offer, has seen the membership increase in number to 375
so that there is now (1990/91) a waiting list for full membership. At the same time, the numbers of junior members have grown and
this is now a flourishing section of the Club. The Seniors Section has long been strong in numbers and it is only the Ladies who have
found it difficult to recruit. However, those ladies are an enthusiastic and valuable section and it is to be hoped that their efforts
will be better rewarded in the future.
