With the new season underway, there are 18 teams playing in 3 Senior divisions which is the same number as last season. There has been a decrease in the Veterans Teams by 2, which leaves 10 teams; as a result we are playing this as one division with all the teams playing each other once. However, there has been an increase in the Junior entries which has resulted in 4 divisions.
