The hosts were able to reduce the gap, but Lindrick lifted the title with a leeway of 14pts. Rotherham finished in second spot and Sitwell Park were third.

The top two teams also met in the knockout cup final in which Lindrick delivered a three-point victory at the expense of Rotherham after eliminating Worksop in their semi-final.

Hall said "it's been a great effort from everyone this season and to win both trophies is just fantastic. We've had a small but very committed squad of players who have all contributed to our success. Their energy and camaraderie has made captaining the side a very easy job".
