Thursday Roundup - The Run-in

 

It's time to take a look at the Thursday leagues as we head towards the conclusion of the season.


Attleborough Sports can clinch the title next week with a 8 - 3 or better win. This seems unlikely though as they are away to second place Stoke Cov A. In reality, anything other than a heavy loss should see them to the title. Other than that any one of the remaining five teams could finish bottom with just eight points covering them. Foleshill Gas A in third are in the odd position of having an outside chance for the title and finishing bottom!


Thursday two is even tighter with Walsgrave A and Foxes tied at the top and the former leading by just nine shots. At the bottom Newdigate A, Kenilworth A and Potters A are all fighting to not be last.


It's almost done and dusted for Stockingford A in D3. They need just four points from their remaining two games to ensure the title whatever anyone else does. Coundon B look down having secured just one win from their ten games so far.


Division 4 looks a straight battle between Dunlop B and Walsgrave C, although the former suffered a setback with a narrow loss at third placed Albany A. Gas and Bed Ex prop up the table.


Coundon C currently look favourites to pinch the D5 title from Standard B but due to bad weather and illness, there are a lot of games to play. They meet next week in a crunch match and should Standard lose out they will rue the one bad day they had against Herberts in July. One thing that is very likely is that Albany B will finish bottom of the league but having still got the top two left to play, they might just have a say about who wins the league.


As with Midweek the Aggregates are two close to call. Tighter than a [insert your own favourite saying here]. Good luck to all you Thursday Leaguers.

Thursday League - June Round-up

 

As we reach the end of June, it's time to cast our eyes over the leagues, and as Thursday is done for this month, we'll start there. Unbeaten Attleborough Sports hold a hefty 11 point lead over their nearest rivals Stoke Cov A in Division 1. It's no surprise then that they occupy the top two slots in the Aggregates with Steve Pratt edging out Michael Warrington by 9 shots, with Daves Smith (Dunlop A) and Ord (Lime Tree A) just a whisker behind. Game of the month has to have been Lime Tree A v Gas A; a tight, low scoring affair with five players registering single figures. In the end it was a 21 - 14 win by Dean Nicholls in the final game that sealed the win for Gas by three shots.

 

In D2, five points cover the top four with Walsgrave A leading on 37 points. However with all the other teams have a game in hand, and going by 'points per game', Foxes are truely in top spot. Interestingly though Walsgrave B are also outdoing their A team on this measure. Brian Allen (Foxes) leads the way from Brian Thomas and Scott Horbury from Walsgrave A but Walsgrave B have an impressive four players in the top ten.

 

Stockingford A dominate the Aggregates in D3 with four of the top five. Steve Reed heads the table followed by his teammate Dave Ensor with only Mark Bradley (Herberts A) breaking the Stockingford stranglehold. In the league, however, they are just three points aheand of Alvis with Standard A a further two points behind. They have also lost more matches than the three teams below them. With their game in hand Herberts A are probably virtually sitting second. It felt like this was going to be a really tight division and that was reenforced this week with all three games ending four games apiece. Lime Tree B snatched an away win by just one shot in their match against Weddington, despite having two players lose to single figures.

 

There are just nine points covering the top five in D4. Walsgrave lead the table but have played a game more so it is Dunlop B lead the table if we look at 'points per game'. They are without a win in their last two games however, one of which was a rare draw. Albany A picked up five winners in the first five games away at Dunlop B, only to lose by eight shots. It marks a very odd season for Albany, having lost all three of their home games but remaining unbeaten away. Ronan Allen (Stoke Cov B) continues his excellent start (in all leagues) and tops the Aggregates with a 100% record. However, he is just 1 point and one shot ahead of Scott Crowther (Albany A) who likewise has a zero in the losses column. Steve Bates (Bed Ex) rounds out the top three.

 

It was always likely that D5 was going to suffer with postponements, but it isn't as bad as it might have been. The mid season break is proving a popular time to play rearranged games. That has left the league table a bit all over the place but, by any measure, Standard B are romping it right now. Herberts B are curently second but Coundon C with their game in hand could take that position. Matt Shaw (Copsewood) leads Paul Perry (Herberts B) by two shots while Ted Rogers (Coundon C) is not far behind in third. In fact he is only one of the three with a 100% record and with a game in hand is sitting pretty. Herberts B achieved a perfect home result against Albany B while confusion reigned in the Standard B v Coundon C game as the sides ended up on the same score. And (as we all know!) that means one point to the home side and two to the away, and as Standard managed five winners it was welcome 6 - 5 win to them.
