Manningtree nearly there!

Manningtree A played this evening against Bury St Edmunds B.   Both teams were desperately seeking points, but for different reasons.   The result was a draw, which leaves Manningtree needing just one point from their final match, against Bury St Edmunds A on 10 April, to claim the league title for the first time.   The other five teams in Division 1 are separated by only 2½ points, with the bottom two teams having an extra match to play.   Things couldn't be closer!

The top four teams have one match each to play.   Manningtree A are top on 21½ points.   Ipswich C are second on 18 points, Bury St Edmunds B have 17 points and Ipswich B 16½.   The other two teams, Ipswich A and Bury St Edmunds A have two matches to play, and are both on 15½ points.

The remaining matches, and dates, are:

Tuesday 25 March   -   Ipswich A v Ipswich C
Thursday 3 April   -   Bury St Edmunds A v Ipswich B
Thursday 10 April   -   Bury St Edmunds B v Ipswich A; Bury St Edmunds A v Manningtree A

Manningtree A cannot be relegated, but any of the other five teams could face the drop.

  1. Is your maths right B , Ipswich A could win both games 4-0 giving them 23.5 points as Manningtree have 21.5 so they need at least 2 points then comes the second counter , Bury A could also amass 23.5 points
