It’s even tighter at the top

Suffolk League Division 1 has a crazy look about it.   Two teams have played six matches, whilst one team has played only three.   But really there’s only a thin sheet of Bronco between all six teams.

Here’s the current table:

Team Played Points
Bury St Edmunds B 6 12
Manningtree A 5 11½
Bury St Edmunds A 5 11
Ipswich A 6 10½
Ipswich B 5 9
Ipswich C 3 6

Last week, Manningtree A pulled off an amazing 3½-½ win against Ipswich A and are only half a point adrift with a match in hand over current leaders Bury St Edmunds B, who drew with Ipswich B.   Can anyone remember if Ipswich teams have ever filled the three bottom rungs of Division 1 before?   Mind you, Ipswich C need only 6½ points from their three outstanding matches to leapfrog into top spot.   They play two of these in the next eight days (14 and 22 January), by when we’ll have a much better picture of how the division is panning out.
