After week two in the Premier Pairs we have only ‘Young Guns’ maintaining a 100% win record but this could come under serious threat when they face ‘Likely Lads’ in week three. I think however that this League is still wide open with any one of the first half dozen teams having a chance to take the honours at the end of the season.
In the First Division Pairs we have ‘Castletown Crofters’ again having gained full points and they are closely followed by ‘Terriers’ and ‘Enigma’ and it is already starting to look as if the eventual winner will come from one of these three teams.
In the Tuesday Morning League ‘Villans’ are the only team still on maximum points and are closely followed by ‘Ellan Vannin’ but I also think that ‘Maxums’ and ‘Onchan Royals’ could well be in the mix before the season reaches it’s halfway point.
The Premier Team League held on a Wednesday evening has all the makings of an epic battle that will go right ‘down to the wire’ with ‘Villans’ and ‘QPR’ both on twelve points with ‘Dragons’ close behind on ten. This battle will be worth watching closely throughout the season as all these teams have experienced and very capable players.
After only two weeks ‘Maxums’ and ‘DNA’ lead the rest of the field in the First Division Teams League by four points and I will be surprised if the winner does not come from one of these two teams.
And finally the Second Division Pairs which seems to have introduced quite a few new players is promising to be a close affair with the first four teams being separated by only two points and these are ‘Reckless Rollers’, ‘Outcasts’, ‘Odds and Bobs 2’ and ‘Corrin’s Folly’.
May I also take this opportunity to ask everyone interested to start thinking about the ‘Island Indoor Championships’ to be held in January so that they can sort out their teams etc and put their entries on the lists which are already on display in the NSC Bowls Hall.
