On Monday we reported on Division 1, observing how close all the teams are. And so it is in Divisions 2 and 3.
In Division 2 there are just 4½ points between top and bottom, and the team at the foot of the table have a match in hand, too.
In Division 3 only 3½ points separate the teams. That’s less than a single match result, so it’s all to play for:
|Bury St Edmunds D||7||13½|
The next matches in this division are on 28 January. If Clacton were to beat Saxmundham B and Bury St Edmunds D beat Felixstowe, then it’s possible that Bury D could end up top of the division by the end of the month, having been bottom at Christmas. Clacton too could be top. Every half-point counts, so draw offers need to be balanced against team needs.
