Suivre Les Boule & The Exiles share spoils

In the re-arranged fixture from the first set of matches, Suivre Les Boules Playford and The Exiles Melton played their game a week later than scheduled due to Playfords pre-season trip to conquer Paris!

In a closely fought match, judging by the scores, it ended in a 2-2 draw with The Exiles scoring 40 points against Suivres 39 points, showing how close things really were.

Sunday May 4th sees Suivre visit Aldeburgh Boules Club whilst Hollesley Shepherd & Dog play host to Ye Olde Coach & Horses Melton

Hoxne start with a win

In the Blyth Division last Sunday, Hoxne PC played host to the team from North Cove 3 Horseshoes. Whilst North Cove put up a brave performance in their first match, they were outgunned by Hoxne who racked up the first 4-0 win of the season, to take an early lead in their group.

Next matches scheduled for this section are on 18th May with Southwold playing hosts to Hoxne and North Cove on their travels again, this time to the Bell Inn Walberswick.

End Of Season Play-Offs

As we would like to keep everyone involved right up until the end of the season, we are going to hold the League Play-Offs as follows.

The group winners of both the Blyth & Deben Divisions will meet at a neutral venue approximately halfway on Sunday September 14th to contest the overall Suffolk Coastal Petanque League Championship.

Meanwhile on the same day, the group runners-up of both the Blyth & Deben will also meet in a 3rd/4th place play-off, again at a neutral venue to be decided once teams are known.

Both matches will be play as a best of 4 doubles as per the League format but if a match goes to 2-2, a fifth deciding game will be played, with this being the ONLY time ever the captains can pick 2 players who have already played together earlier in the match if they so wanted.

First Week fixture preview

With just 7 days left until the opening round of matches in the 2008 Suffolk Coastal Petanque League, we take a look at the scheduled matches as follows.

In the Blyth Division, North Cove travel inland over to Hoxne PC to play at their new piste on the playing fields over by the primary school, whilst eyes will be watching the local derby involving Harbour Inn Southwold and the Bell Inn Walberswick with local bragging rights up for grabs right from the first week.

Meanwhile in the Deben Division, Suivre Les Boules were due to play The Exiles but this game is now being re-arranged due to the Suivre team taking a pre-season trip to Paris. With Ye Olde Coach & Horses Melton the team sitting out the first weeks play, Aldeburgh Boules Club host their first game at home to Hollesley Shepherd & Dog at the Moot Hall piste on the seafront.

Hopefully the weather will keep fine and the League will make an excellent start. If you are near any of these venues next Sunday, please pop along and watch some of the league action. You never know you might feel inclined to join in at some point yourself.
