In their first entry into the National Wheelchair League play offs, the Crusader team surprised more than a few people at the EIS in Sheffield by bringing home silver medals. 
 
In their first game against 3rd Division North Winners, Percy Hedley Eagles, they snatched a 10 point lead at one point, before finishing the game down by 7, (41 to 48).   This proved to be one of the closest games of the weekend, with only the Super League semi between Bombers and Owls having a closer score line.
 
The second game against 3rd Division south winners Maidstone Rebels remained close throughout but Crusaders only lost the lead for a short while before taking the game 52 to 44.
Crusaders bring home the Div 3 Central trophy and silver medals for 2nd place in the 3rd div playoffs.
