The summer league came to a close with the final being played back on 21st August, seeing The Phoenix from Chopwell, beating Finnians A in a close-fought match, 9-7 at Leadgate Club.
The new season started on 4th September, with 27 teams competing over 3 divisions. Blackhill Club, will be looking to retain the Division 1title they won back in May, and have started with a 9-4 victory over the snooker club, and a superb 13-0 victory over the Scotch. Finnians A and B, will be hoping they can push them right until the end, and take the title themselves.
Newcomers the Phoenix and The Scotch will also be hoping to make their mark on the first division this season. Division 1 certainly looks very strong this season and although the top 3 pretty much pick themselves, the 2 relegation spots will be hard to predict.
Division 2, and last season 3rd placed team, the Black Horse, will be pushing for promotion this season, and with a steady 8-5 victory over the Miners, they have started well. Last seasons, Division 1 relegated teams, The Station and Leadgate Club, will be hoping they can bounce straight back up. 2019 division 3 winners, Bellamys, will be hoping to surprise a few teams this season, and keep a steady mid-table position, to cement their place in Division 2, but could they go further and win back to back promotions? Time will tell!
Onto Division 3, and this looks absolutely wide open as to who could win it. The 2 new teams Demi B and Golden Lion B, could surprise a few, with the former boasting a team full of young and hungry players. Finnians E have started brilliantly with a 12-1 win over the Queens Head and then a steady 7-6 win over the Demi B. Who knows who will be top come May 2020, but it will certainly be an interesting season ahead.
