Frank Greenwood, home team captain, summarises the Inter-District team's season.
 
A very disappointing end to the Yorkshire Inter-District 2017 season for Huddersfield, clearly demonstrated in the final match against a very much improved West Riding side who made a valiant effort to win the league but just came up short finishing in second place one point behind this years champions Bradford.
 
In our home side two players have had outstanding results in their matches, Peter Kain wins the Averages having played 7 won 6 with an average of 4.57, but Alan Bamforth played 5 won 5 produced a better average of 10.4 but missed out having only played 5 of the 6 matches required to qualify, very well done to both of them.
