Belper Meadows, last season’s Derby Ladies League Division Three champions, opened their Division Two campaign with a pleasing 10-0 victory over Mayfield.

The Meadows Ladies managed to win all of five very close matches that were won by a margin of two shots or less - but their overall victory by 168 to 124 was largely due to a convincing win in the opening match by Delia Ratcliffe who won 21-6.
