First promotion in the Suffolk League

As the season draws to its conclusion, promotion and relegation issues will begin to be finalised.   Yesterday’s results saw Bury St Edmunds D win Division 3 of the Suffolk League, following a 3 – 1 win over Stowmarket Rooks in their last match of the season.   Nearest challengers Clacton beat Felixstowe 2½-1½, but that leaves Clacton 4½ points adrift, with just one match to play.

Bury D’s captain Scott Taylor is relishing the prospect of playing in Division 2 next season, where he intends to continue as captain.

Felixstowe’s Phil Hopkins will be Division 3 Player of the Year; he has now accrued 9 points from his 11 games and cannot be caught.   The title is not based on percentage score (as shown on Dave Wild’s website), but on the total games won for the same team.
