Worker Bees, displaying some talent on the team went into their first game against Derby Phantoms ready. With the opposition close to them in the table, meant this match was going to be close.

After the close loss to Derby, the day ended well for the the Workers, with a victory over former league leaders, Leeds Dodge.
