Report 2nd April 2006


With less than a month now to go and just 40 results to come in the Newmarket Badminton Federation Leagues, the tables show the story so far.


During the last month (since the tables were last reported), a 3˝-2˝ loss to Newmarket B will see St. Phillips’ Ladies finishing bottom of the First Division and facing the drop for the first time in many seasons.  In the Ladies Second Division Soham have steamed to third place, but Linton look the safe bet to swop places with the Saints.


Newmarket Men’s A were obviously keen to take on current First Division leaders St. Phillips A, turning up three weeks ahead of schedule, but the Saints were set to play Burwell A that night and had a point to prove as Burwell had inflicted their only defeat to date.  The Saints duly put Burwell in their place with a resounding 6-0 defeat.


The only news in the Men's Second Division is that Impington have finally admitted that they are unlikely to field a team for remaining fixtures so they are conceding any outstanding matches.


Relegation places have been sorted in the Mixed Divisions with Con Club in the First and Newmarket B in the Second.  Everything else is still up for grabs.
