  • EA Champs trophy return - we request that trophies are engraved and returned in time for the presentation to the 2018 winners at the Champs. It is particularly disappointing for the juniors if the junior trophies are not returned in time. The cost of engraving may be reclaimed from EAOA. Paul and Barbara will be at the CompassSport Cup/Trophy event on 11 March where they can accept trophies from people who may not be attending the Champs.
  • The 2017 East Anglian League trophies will be presented at the CompassSport Cup/Trophy round at Shouldham Warren on 11th March at 14:00. Full list of winners here
