Match day 5 round–up

With two rounds of matches to go, most of the divisions are very close.      Only in division 7 does a team have a double–digit lead,  Wakefield D by 16 VPs over Sheffield C.    By contrast, in division 4 only 6 VPs separate the top four teams, Brighouse Buccaneers, Harrogate B, Keighley B and Huddersfield A.    The other divisions appear to be two horse races:

Division 1 – Sheffield A lead York A by 5

Division 2 –  Doncaster A are 8 points ahead of Malton A

Division 3 – Brighouse Buccaneers have an advantage of just 4 points over local rivals Shelley A

Division 5 – Wakefield B lead Ripon by 6

Division 6 – Doncaster C are ahead of Ilkley C by 8.

Match day 6 on 3rd March features top of the table matches between Sheffield A and York A in division 1 and Doncaster C and Ilkley C in division 6, while in division 4 third-placed Keighley B take on leaders Brighouse Buccaneers.

A reminder to match secretaries and team captains that, if you know in advance that you won’t be able to raise a team to play a match on the scheduled day, then you may, by agreement with the opponents, play the match on an earlier date.     If you cannot fulfil a fixture because a player or players drop out on the day of the match or shortly before – then please make arrangements with your opponents to play the match on the earliest date practicable.    Please also keep the League Secretary informed.

The ‘play by’ date, for any matches in rounds 6 and 7 that for any reason cannot be played on the scheduled date, is Sunday 5th May 2024.
