Earlier this week, we reported on the latest positions in Divisions 1 and 2. Now it’s the turn of Division 3, where Manningtree‘s second team seem intent on following in the footsteps of their seniors, who won Division 1 last season. They are now six points clear of the field, although Ipswich F have a match in hand. This is the current table:

One of the last matches to be played in this division will be Ipswich E v Manningtree B, on 31 March. This could be a crucial match to decide promotion to Division 2.
