New scoreboards for Division 3 & 4 teams

Winter League

Review of the Winter League Division 3 & 4 fixtures played on Monday 16 October

New scoreboards at Lindley Lib and at Primrose Hill Lib shows the effort being put in by the host clubs to make match day spectators more informed than has been the past practice.

We have new leaders in Division 3 as Marsh United take over from Milnsbridge B but only by the narrowest of margins. Both teams are on 22 points but the Marsh side have accumulated an Aggregate For total of 187 which is one point more than Milnsbridge. The Milnsbridge team failed to record an 8-0 win for the first time this season when seeing off Dalton 6-2 but that opening was sufficient for the Marsh team who eventually beat Rastrick 8-0.

Primrose Hill Lib unsurprisingly failed to take points off Hanging Heaton who now join Thorpe Green B and Lindley Lib B on 10 points in mid-table but with a game in hand over the teams above them. Thorpe Green beat Paddock I&C who are still looking for their first win of the season whilst Lindley Lib B had a bye week.

The Division 4 fixture programme started this week at Lindley Liberal Club who unveiled a new scoreboard for teams to add their own game scores as their matches progressed. This is an upgrade on the previous model but serves the same purpose of keeping all the teams informed of who is beating who and by how much. The scoreboard actually comes in two halves and is made from a damaged table top would you believe. The coloured mats remain in use to enable spectators to identify which match is in action at any time.

On the same day Primrose Hill unveiled their new paper-based scoreboard which does the same job of keeping all the teams up to date with game scores as can be seen by this picture.

On the green at Lindley Lib the teams were playing their first round of fixtures of the season and the first table shows that Thorpe Green C are showing the way after an 8-0 white-wash win over Springwood B. They were the only 8-0 winner with three more teams winning by the 6-2 margin. These three are separated by the better Aggregate scores and Lindley Lib C (called Marsh Lib last season) lead that trio of winners. Resplendent in their new winter tops (photos online tomorrow) they looked and acted the part of a team meaning business as they saw off Kirkheaton C&BC.

The new boys from New Mill B got their Winter League experience off to a promising start beating Milnsbridge C 6-2 and that left Netherton Con A to take the first step to consolidating their place in Division 4 after their promotion last season. They did that in style by beating established Division 4 side Lowerhouses B 6-2 although the 57-52 aggregate scores shows that the outcome could easily have been reversed.
