Star Inn Aunt Sally team celebrate a good year


The Sulgrave Aunt Sally team gathered together at The Star during October to celebrate a reasonably good season with a traditional supper partly sponsored by those players who pay a penalty of £1 for a “Blob” (failing to score any dolls in a round). The team did quite well during the season which will ensure they remain in Division 3 of the Banbury and District League.

Pictures of the event and more information on the next page.








Star Players Tom Russell and Charlotte Cherry received prizes from Team Captain Richard Fonge for scoring a “six” – six Dolls consecutively brought down with 6 Sticks during a game.

Aunt Sally is a traditional Pub Game sponsored by Hook Norton Brewery and mainly played in the Midlands and South of England. The BANBURY AND DISTRICT League has over 60 teams arranged into 7 Divisions and The Star at Sulgrave is currently placed towards the centre of Division Three. Click here for the Division Table.
