The Bury Area League’s Cup competition, the Roger Goldsmith Trophy, is nearing completion with the two Bury St Edmunds teams holding the top positions.
All six teams have one more match to play, scheduled for Easter week. Leaders Bury Beehive, fresh from a 3½-½ drubbing of Cambridge Masters this evening, play away at Fen Thoroughbreds (Ely), whilst second-place Bury Abbey are at home to Cambridge Porters.
At the end of the round-robin matches, the top two teams then play each other again in the Final during the second week in May. Current holders are Bury Abbey, who beat Cambridge Students at the end of last season, despite only managing a draw in the 2016 Final. The tie-break rules award the trophy to the team with the higher points total in the league stage.
The current league table (soon to be updated with this evening’s result) can be seen here.
