British Cup and League Tables 1983

The scans here are two pages from 'Word is ...' number 6 which was a newsletter published by the British Handball Association in the early '80s. The pages 3 and 7 show a report on the 1983 British Cup Final and end of season tables for the 1983 season respectively.

The report on the final is written by Ian Harris and summarises Liverpool's 14-13 win over Brentwood '72. It was Brentwood's first league or cup defeat since 1977/78 and Liverpool's first major honour.

The 'Results' page shows that Brentwood '72 were Men's English League champions and Wakefield Metros winning the ladies national league. In Scotland East Kilbride '82 were men's champions and Strathclyde the women's champions. The page shows a British Chamionship for the women won by Wakefield but there is no evidence of a men's play-off.

Towards the foot of the page 'Other Leagues' are for men Salford with 4 teams and Merseyside with 7 teams, and for women Greater Manchester with 4 teams and Merseyside with 5 teams. The statistics continue on to page 8 (not shown) with details of t
he Midland league and the GLSE league both of which were won by Milton Keynes.
