Hi All,

There are only 5 remaining fixtures unaccounted for.

Division 1

As previously mentioned, Wrexham are champions. Colwyn Bay secured 2nd place ahead of Chester after beating them 3.5-1.5.

The battle to avoid the wooden spoon is between Rhyl and Buckley/Mold, who have a game outstanding. A draw or better for Buckley/Mold will be enough to keep them off the bottom.

Richard Dineley of Wrexham has won the Division 1 player of the year.

Division 2

Colwyn Bay 2 lead having played all their games. Frodsham can overtake them but only if they can defeat Chester 3 4.5-0.5 or better. 3rd place Capenhurst are out of the title race but could take 2nd if they defeat Chester 3 and Frodsham fail to.

At the other end Buckley/Mold are bottom however Chester 3 could fall below them if they suffer 2 heavy defeats in their outstanding fixtures.

Gordon Sommerville of Buckley/Mold leads the top scorer charts, but Colin White of Chester could overtake him if he scores 1.5 points or better in his next 2 games.

Division 3

Wrexham 2 have won promotion into Division 2, ahead of Penyffordd 2, Rhyl 2 and Chester 4, who all have games outstanding.

Corwen and Ruthin will finish in last place regardless of how Chester 5 do against Penyffordd.

Top Scorer is currently Jim Hanson of Buckley/Mold, due to having played the most games. However a draw or better from either Mike Friel (Penyffordd) or Ben Roberts (Rhyl) will see one of them claim the prize, or possibly shared.

Knock Out

Wrexham defeated Penyffordd 4-2 to claim a league and cup double.
