Captained by Ian Wallis, the Scorpions are having a fundamental effect on which team ends up as League Champions. Last Tuesday they managed to draw 2 - 2 against leaders Linton A (with Shaun Munson beating CM David Coleman 204). This put a spoke in Linton's wheel and they now stand just 2½ points clear of their nearest challengers Cambridge Examiners, who have a game in hand. And that's not all. Next Thursday, Scorpions entertain Examiners, who will be anxious to leap-frog Linton and claim top spot, with both teams then having one more match to play.
Here is the current league table:
|Bury St Eds Scorpions||10||25|
|Bury St Eds Scarabs||11||19½|
|Bury St Eds Cobras||10||19|
|Ely Beet Bishops||9||12½|
At the other end of the table, Ely appear doomed to relegation, despite having one or two matches in hand over the teams immediately above them.
