Week 17...

Tempus fugit…

Tuesday sees the last League games of this season with much still up for grabs. As the dust starts to think about settling on another season, some of the issues are being decided.

Congratulations to Graham Bailey’s Weaver for becoming A League Champions for the first time – the first time in 13 seasons that a tream from the Ox-fford / Dolphin (Bridgewater) hasn’t won, so it is about time we had a change!

Lord knows what will happen in the B League when any two from the top 4 could be promoted and one of them will win it! I’m keeping my money in my pocket and placing no bets on this one…

The C League will have a resounding finish as the top two (and season-long pacesetters) the Plough Taverners and Waters Green Rams meet at the Plough. Whoever wins will be champions.

The last remaining entertainment for the season after all this will be the Finals Night…

The Weaver, Thornton Square, Macclesfield

Tuesday 19th of April 2011

7.30pm onwards for prompt 8pm start.

The evening will consist of the Cup Final initially and then the presentation of all this season's prizes.

The Cup Final will be between the Dolphin Dragons and the Ox-fford ‘C’.

If you haven’t done so already, please submit your 20 questions for the Cup and Plate Finals in a sealed envelope to Waters Green Tavern by close of play tomorrow. Thank you to all those who have sent in questions already.

Also available on the Finals Night will be the season's last News & Views, which will give all the tables and statistics for the entire season. Please support the last “Do” of the season and come and collect your final News & Views - you may even find you have won something!

See you all then if not before.

Weeks 15 & 16...

As promised, here are two weeks worth of results during which much has happened and the usual “up” and “down” arrows have started to appear…

Particular congratulations to the Plough Taverners and Waters Green Rams on promotion from the C League. They are now just fighting for the title over the last two weeks of the season. Given that they meet on the last week, it should be mighty dust-up to bring down the curtain.

It would be a braver man than I who would forecast the outcome of promotion from the B League with any number of permutations still possible. The A League title will go to either the Weaver or the Ox-fford with the Weaver having the advantage of points on the board at present.

Haydn has the details and will work his spreadsheet magic – I will let you have it as soon as I do.

Personal Scores

We are now well beyond the stage of the season when just the best 11 or 12 individual scores from however many games you have played are counted – 11 in the A League, 12 in the B and C Leagues. Several players have now played more games than these numbers. Just in case anyone was wondering why their totals had not increased as much as they thought they should have…

Questions for the Cup and Plate Finals…

…should be returned to the bag at Waters Green Tavern by close of business on 23/03/2011 which is the Wednesday after the last night of the season. This is NEXT WEEK.

Please make sure you send in some questions
