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.
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.
