The ladies were also in fine form over the summer winning Division One and the mixed team also claimed the league title too.

The club also enjoyed success in the cups – claiming five pieces of silverware.

In other competitions, Burnley claimed the title in the National Club League Division One and were also runners-up in Division Two. The club also emerged victorious in the Ransom County Cup.

The juniors were also in excellent form. The Under-18s were champions in the National Club League and the Under-14s finished runners-up.
