On a historic Sunday Buxton Women hosted Hayfield and New Mills.

Though Buxton lost both games it was a competitive and enjoyable day with the club hoping it will further encourage development of the game amongst Buxton women and girls.

In the men’s game, Buzton first team hosted South Wingfield II.
