With only one or two matches remaining to be played by each team in the three divisions, there are no guaranteed promotions or relegations yet.
Here are the current league tables, following this evening’s match between Bury St Edmunds B and Ipswich C in Division 1:
|Bury St Edmunds A||8||15½|
|Bury St Edmunds B||8||15|
Manningtree A are sitting proudly at the top, with a three-point margin over their nearest rivals, Ipswich C. But all teams still have two matches to play, with both Manningtree’s being against the Bury St Edmunds’ teams. Which team will be relegated is anyone’s guess; in theory any team could suffer the dreaded drop.
|Bury St Edmunds C||9||20|
Stowmarket A’s match next Tuesday against Saxmundham A could decide which team tops the division with just one match to play. Stowmarket are currently three points behind leaders Bury St Edmunds C. At the other end of the division, Saxmundham have a similar incentive, as they lie 3½ points adrift with the game in hand.
|Bury St Edmunds D||11||26|
Clacton‘s recent win against Manningtree B has given them renewed hope of winning this division. But they stand four points behind leaders Bury St Edmunds D, with a match in hand. Bury’s last match is on 18 March, when they will be the first team to complete their scheduled matches. Their final total will be the target for the other teams.
