Handicaps for the new season

It has been decided to run a handicap league in parallel with the the normal league competition. Two separate league tables will be produced after each week’s fixtures. The cup competition that starts after the league season finishes will be played on a handicap system as last year. The handicaps have been calculated based on last season’s results and are as follows:-

Britannia 2014 16
Bryn Labour Club 23
Bryn PLC 18
Delph Tavern 17
Masons Arms 10
Merrymen 15
Millstone 0
Robin Hood 6
RH Colts 15
UCC Blues 0

Fixtures for 2016

The fixtures have been released for the new season - a table is shown below with the home team down the side and the away team along the top.  Each team's fixtures are also on the team pages, and all fixtures will be added to the calendar in due course.

Congratulations to Millstone - League Champions

After a very close end to the season, Millstone have effectively secured the League title by beating Britannia in their last match.  In order for UCC Blues to take the title, they would have to win their remaining postponed match by a margin of 70 points!  The absence of Pat Gibson for their line-up for the match shows that they are not just a one man team and are worthy winners.

Fixtures for 2015 are now available

The fixtures for the coming season can now be see on the team pages and on the fixture calendar.  Matches start on 7th April 2015 and the league season lasts for 18 weeks, after which the knockout competition will take place.
