It’s half-time in the Bury Area League

All matches have now been completed up to the halfway point in the League.  For Divisions 1 and 3 this means six matches per team, and for Division 2, only five.

Suffolk teams are experiencing mixed fortunes.   In Division 1, the two Bury St Edmunds teams lie in 3rd place (Scorpions) and 5th place (Scarabs).   Scorpions are four points behing current leaders Cambridge Choristers.

In Division 2, Bury Cobras are just one point behind leaders Cambridge Bollards.  Bury Vipers are only half a point off the bottom.  But with only 4½ points between top and bottom places, there’s all to play for.

In Division 3, all but two of the teams are from Suffolk.   Newmarket have a clear lead of 5½ points, whilst Stowmarket and the three Bury St Edmunds teams (E, F and G) are struggling to keep up with the pace.

Currently, four Ipswich members (Shuan Munson, Ian Wallis, Sam Brennan and Andrew Shephard) play for Bury St Edmunds in Division 1, giving them the opportunity to play against different opponents.

  1. Hi Bob,
    Newmarket lead Bury Div 3 over the board but not by as much as the points show. An unfortunate default by Bury on 25.9.2012 gifted them a 4 point flying start. Lowly Stowmarket did their bit in pegging back Newmarket's runaway lead by inflicting a surprising but nonetheless crushing 4.5 to 0.5 defeat on Tuesday 11/12/2012.

    Well done Stowmarket's minnows
