Spring League tables & results

Here is a brief round-up of how things are looking in this year’s Spring Leagues. The competitions are now several weeks in, and for 9 teams there are only 2 weeks left before the final matches are played.

With those teams playing at 6pm having just 2 match days left, Connah’s Quay Rockers (CQR) are the team to beat. They have been top of the table for some time, but that is no guarantee as CQR have a bye on the last match day – meaning Monday 9th’s game against the Wheelchair Curlers – who are also near the top – could prove crucial.

The 8pm competition has longer to run, with more teams involved. The Alyn Valley club currently look favourites to take the title, with both their Atomic (AVAT) and Alternators (AVAL) right at the top of the table. With 6 match weeks left, no team is yet out of the running, although Mid Wales Brush with Death (MWB) and Connah’s Quay Celts (CQC) have some work to do if they are to contest for the title.

Spring League cut short to complete season

Owing to issues with the ice at Deeside on Monday, it will not be possible to complete the Spring League as planned. With extending the season both logistically and financially difficult, the only options were to finish the competition now, with winners as per standings in the League table after three rounds, or hold the final round until September.

At this (Thursday) evening’s FPOW Committee meeting the decision was taken not to hold the matches over, but to declare the Spring League over for the season. This means Team F (Andrew Tanner, Chris Houlbrooke, George Hartley, Simon Meyers) are the winners.

We apologise for any disappointment caused by the shortening of this competition this season, which was forced on us by matters entirely beyond the control of the First Province. We are attempting to communicate with the ice rink management about this and other ice-quality issues that have affected play this season.

The match schedule is also affected – please check the schedule of matches if unsure.
