It’s the mid season point as we complete 11 of the 22 games for the Premier and First Divisions.
The 2nd Division has more teams and so a couple more weeks before it reaches their halfway point. In the Premier division we see last year’s champions Special K (Pictured) hit 100 points to lead the division by 14 points. In second place are the Fairways, but as they continue to struggle only managing a 7-6 win over 3rd from bottom Happy Slappers, could the Raiders in 3rd place (and only 7 points behind) catch them and take that runner up title. The relegation zone sees Happy Slappers just ahead of the Copthorne Beachbums and at the bottom of the table are the Pocket Knockers. However with just 7 points between mid table and the bottom this is not a done deal and still all to play for.
In Division 1 JCB, OOOooouusshh and New Moon Rejects all took just 7 points from last week’s games and so JCB & OOOooouusshh remain sharing the top slot with the Rejects in 3rd. Relegation in this division is threatening for 4 teams as 3rd from bottom on 60 points are both Steamy Llama & Windmill A, 2nd from bottom are the Moon Catz and the Furburgers remain in last place.
In division 2 we still have a couple of weeks before the halfway point but for the first time Samuel Johnson lost a match. This was against the Rocketeers 7-6, they (Samuel Johnson) still hold one game in hand but are 2nd to The Inn Crowd who have taken the top position (by just a point) after a massive 12-1 win over the Jubilee Club. Lils Lab Rats remain in 3rd but the gap between 1st and 3rd is now a massive 18 points.
We take a break over the Christmas period as everyone celebrates this time with family and friends but get back into the league matches from 7th January 2015 and competitions start on Tuesday 6th with Divisional singles for both 1st & 2nd divisions. We would like to wish members and sponsors a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, see you all in 2015.
