The Suffolk League Division 1 is fast becoming a tale of two clubs, with a third club – Manningtree – helping to cloud the issue.
The three Ipswich teams currently occupy three of the top four places, whilst the three Bury St Edmunds clubs are firmly rooted to the foot of the table.
Manningtree are the current League Champions and the recent addition of Andrew Lewis (207) to their squad makes them very tough opponents. They have a match in hand over the leaders, Ipswich C, and a 4 – 0 win would bring them up to within half a point.
With Ipswich B having two matches in hand over Ipswich C, as well as two of the Bury teams, it looks almost certain that one of the Bury St Edmunds teams will be relegated. Here is the current table:
|Bury St Edmunds B||9||1||4||4||14|
|Bury St Edmunds C||8||2||0||6||11½|
|Bury St Edmunds A||9||0||2||7||9|
Tomorrow, the County First Team is playing against Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire. Full results and a report will appear here during the evening.
