Summary

Last time the Newmarket Badminton Federation Leagues were reported there were quite a few results outstanding, but with all the results now in there are no further surprises in the league positions.

In the Mixed Division One, Newmarket A nudged ahead of Ely Victoria to retain their title, whereas Newmarket B finished the other end of the Division in their annual yo-yo between Divisions.  St. Phillips A made a last minute dash up the Division with a win over Ely Victoria and a rare draw against Newmarket A.  The other two Mixed Divisions had been long-since sewn up.  The Con Club finished well clear at the top of a very competitive Second Division, in which St. Phillips B struggled to stay the pace.  Linton showed class in remaining unbeaten to take the Third Division title.

Newmarket A were expected to retain their First Division Ladies title, but the manner was impressive, sweeping all before them until they dropped just the one game of their season against Ely Victoria.  Haverhill lost just the one match against Newmarket and St. Phillips were close behind them.  No shame on any of the teams in the newly combined “all-in” Ladies Division with all teams scoring points.  Unfortunately, however, Cambridge Hurst could not sustain a team and withdrew before the end of the season.

In the Men’s First Division the final placings were decided as much by who could consistently field a reasonable side as the actual results on the night.  Once again St. Phillips were kicking themselves - having to concede to Littleport and being one player short in the first match of the season at Ely Victoria left them a point short of the more consistent Ely Victoria.  Ely therefore regain the title from last year’s first-time winners St. Edmunds who weren’t fielding the same strength side as last year in their title defence.  Squad troubles saw Newmarket A slide to an all-time low fifth spot and Borders to the bottom of the Division.  Burwell’s undefeated Men were well clear of the mid-table tussle between the usual suspects in the Second Division. 

Just a couple of months now for players to get their rackets re-strung ready for next season.
