NORTHWOOD Town completed their season in the bar after wet weather put paid to any hope of cricket at Chestnut Avenue.
Only three games were played in Division Two in which Town finished a very credible seventh, given that the previous season they were only saved from relegation by the merger of Totteridge and Old Millhillians.
They also claimed the local bragging rights by finishing three places above neighbours Northwood, whose game at Abbots Langley was also abandoned.
Remarkably Town were the only side in the division not to draw a game which perhaps illustrates their do or die attitude.
Town's first team skipper Raj Ahluwalia reflected: "We have come a long way since this time last year.
"We have had a couple of new additions which has improved the quality within the team but I am just as pleased with some of the second team players and youngsters who have really stepped up to the mark and responded to the chance they have been given.
"Some of the performances were outstanding this season and I think we just need that little bit more consistency to push on.
"We have identified areas for improvement and will be looking to strengthen the squad for both sides in the winter.
"Overall I am very satisfied with the season."
Town's second XI finished eighth in Division Seven and while aspirations were higher at the start of the season, a dreadful injury run coupled with poor availability meant that their final position was very respectable.
Town travel to Boxmoor for their final game of the season on Saturday and their presentation dinner takes place at Northwood Golf Club on Friday, November 14.
