Bury League ups and downs

All matches have been completed in the Bury Area Chess League.   The Suffolk clubs (Bury St Edmunds, Newmarket and Stowmarket) have experienced mixed fortunes.

Division 3 was won by Newmarket Thoroughbreds, with Bury St Edmunds 'E' runners-up.   Stowmarket's only team in the BACL finished in mid-table, but the other two Bury St Edmunds teams ('F' and Saffrons)propped up the Division 3 league table.

In Division 2, Bury St Edmunds Vipers were runners-up for the second successive year.   Newmarket Stallions survived the drop but finished in last-but-one place.

Bury St Edmunds have three teams in Division 1.   Scorpions and Scarabs finished mid-table, but Cobras, who were promoted last season, came last on tie-break and will drop back to Division 2 next season.

Division winners were:

Division 1   -   Cambridge Examiners
Division 2   -   Cambridge Oddfellows
Division 3   -   Newmarket Thoroughbreds

Relegated were:

Division 1   -   Bury St Edmunds Cobras
Division 2   -   Cambridge Bollards
