Mid Season Report (by David Cue)
Again we have attracted a good entry of 17 teams for this Summers Programme, 11 teams in Division 1 and 6 teams in Division 2. This is three teams down on last season as we lost Bob Baker's Postling Posers, and the old Iron Room A side run by Steve Bispham.
We had more teams requesting to playing in division one which meant that division two has only had six teams playing. I know this is not satisfactory and I shall be looking to making the division more equal next season.
This is the third year that we have had the handicap in operation, which I think goes down very well with the players. However we have had to make a few alterations to the handicaps, but in gernal I think we have got things just about right basing the handicaps on Winter League results.
My sincere thanks to Steve Bispham for his advice, and his winter ranking list that the summer league handicap is based on. Also to Roy coles for setting up the grid sheet, and for all his suport over the years.
Summer Leaguye was established as a way to keep venues occupied during the summer months, to ensure the bookings remain in place for the winter leagues.
At the midway stage Iron Room A (Paul Waumsley & Joe Britnell (both -7) lead Division 1 on 23 points, and Ruckinge F lead Dvision 2.
