Although the League season has now been underway for the best part of a month, most teams have only played a couple of matches. So perhaps it’s a bit early to jump to any conclusions. No team appears to be streaking away; if fact most results have been very close, with 35% of the matches ending in 2 – 2 draws. Of the 17 matches played to date, there have been no 4 – 0 wins, and just one 3½-½ scoreline.
In Division 1, four teams have played twice whilst two teams (Ipswich C and Manningtree A) have only played one game. Perhaps the biggest surprise is the apparent loss of form by current Champions Ipswich A. Unbeaten last season, they have lost both their opening matches, with three of the same team members present (Gregory, Clapham, Jones L). The two Bury St Edmunds teams share top spot on 4½ points. See the latest table here.
In Division 2, Sudbury head the table with 6½ points from three matches, but Stowmarket A are close behind with a game in hand. The latest table is here.
Division 3 is headed by Stowmarket Rooks, who hold a narrow lead over Bury St Edmunds D. The current table can be viewed here.
