National League Round 5It was a successful day for Bury St Edmunds Tchoukball Club at the fifth round of the Tchoukball UK National League.

It was Headingley Outlaws that benefited most from Bury's performances, as the club's three sides won all of their fixtures.

As a result of wins for both Bury Saints and Bury Wolves against Leeds Cosmos, Headingley leapfrogged Leeds second team into top spot in Division One, having themselves beaten Portsmouth Uni Pythons in a tight match.

Yorkshire and The Humber round upLeeds Galaxy retained the Yorkshire League regional championships for a fourth year after wins against Headingley and Leeds Galaxy. Round two of matches provided all teams the chance to field inexperienced players for development.

Tchoukball UK's Board of Directors unanimously approved a restructure at the top level this weekend. With outgoing Communications Director Andrew St Ledger leaving, the Board decided it was a good time to review the structure needed to deliver real value to players and stakeholders.

After reviewing the work of the last 3 years, Chief Executive Philip Moore proposed that no replacement Communications Director would be appointed at Board level and that Ian Parker (pictured) would be officially appointed Head of Communications for Tchoukball UK after months of hard work in that area, working with Operations Director, Richard Jackson.
