With the majority of teams having only 2 or 3 matches left in the 'regular' season, we take a quick look at how things are 'panning out' in each division as we near our Leagues Play-Off Day.
With the Bell Inn Walberswick (12 points from 7 matches) leading the way by one point over Three Horseshoes North Cove (11 from 8), only the Harbour Inn Southwold (7 from 7) and Laxfield B (8 from 8) have any mathematical chance of catching them and perhaps being in contention for a play-off position. Walberswick & Southwold have 3 matches left whilst the others have two but a lot will depend on who plays who in the final few weeks of the season.
In this section, there are probably just 3 teams left with a chance of qualifying mathematically. Hollesley Shepherd & Dog (12 points from 8 matches) lead the way but have played 2 matches more than second placed Ipswich PC '09 (10 from 6) whilst Ye Olde Coach & Horses Melton (9 from 7) are just a point behind with 3 matches left. Melton & Ipswich meet next week in a Monday night fixture, so Hollesley will be keeping fingers crossed for a draw between these two I'm sure.
The tightest of all 3 groups with 4 out of the 5 teams still jostling for a play-off spot, with only Pettistree Greyhound out of the running this year. Suivre Les Boules Playford (9 points from 7 matches) lead currently but only have one match left whilst second placed Bealings Exiles (8 from 6) have two still to play. Aldeburgh Boules Club (7 from 5) are tucked in third whilst newboys Golden Key Snape (6 from 6) could feature in the final shake-up.
