   Mid-Season Summary

 

As Christmas fades into memory and a new year is on the horizon, we look at the league table at this midway point.

In the main league, Barnby Dun have stormed into the lead and hold a 4-point lead on the Dons A. Dons, Three Horseshoes, and the Catholic Club are still able to try and challenge them however. The Nomads have a few games to catch up on and may still leave Wombwell and the Dons B in their wake. The league table is shown below:

The Bell Trophy (the league’s Rapidplay competition) is led by Dons A, though the Three Horseshoes can draw level if they win their game in hand. A collection of draws see a very tight table however, and it is still anybody’s league!
