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:
|Bury St Edmunds B||6||12|
|Bury St Edmunds A||5||11|
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.
