Bury Area League Division 1

There are two Bury teams in Division 1, with Scorpions currently heading the Scarabs by five points.   With just five points at stake in their final matches (in the Bury League there’s a bonus point if the team wins), Scorpions need only half a point to ensure they remain ahead of their rivals.   The Scorpions team includes Shaun Munson and Ian Wallis, who play for Ipswich in the Suffolk League, and Bury St Edmunds in the Bury Area League.

The latest positions are as follows:


Team Played Points
Linton A 11 34½
Bury St Edmunds Scorpions 11 30½
Cambridge Choristers 10 29
Cambridge Examiners 10 26
Bury St Edmunds Scarabs 11 25½
Ely Beet Bishops 10 16
Cambridge Oddfellows 11 15½

Linton A’s final match is against Ely on 22 April, whilst Scorpions and Choristers face each other three days later, on 25 April.   Choristers play Ely tomorrow (Wednesday), and a convincing win would put them level or close to Linton. The final positions are still very much up in the air.

At the other end of the table, Cambridge Oddfellows appear to be heading for Division 2 next season.   If that happens, it will be the first time that there will be only two Cambridge teams in Division 1.
