Weekending 2nd April 2016
The final games of the Premier Division have been played and resulted in the closest of any season for a long time. Penlan A finally won with 505 points but by just 3 points to Cam Gear A. In turn Cam Gears were just 1 point ahead of Carmarthen A in 3rd spot. Betws A came in forth, again just 3 points behind Carmarthen A -
Carmarthen C have managed to retain their Premier Place by coming 10th in the table with 323 points. However, Carmarthen D are to be relegated (along with TATA Port Talbot A) as they came bottom with just 266 points.
Division 1 and 2 still have two weeks of official play but both teams also have outstanding matches that will see them play for a few weeks yet. Carmarthen D have had two great wins placing them outside of the relegation zone with hi hopes of ending mid table.
Although officially 2nd in the 2nd Division, Carmarthen E look ‘odds on’ to win the Division. They had a brilliant win against Penlan M who, it was thought, aught to take the top spot. But, in a fantastic match Carmarthen won by 27 to 8 points. Full report in the PDF’s on this page.
Matches to be played on Wednesday
30th March 2016.
This will be the final night of matches for the Premier Division although Division 1 and Division 2 have two more weeks of official play along with any postponed matches to be played. However, in the top of the Premier Division there is an interesting situation with the top 4 teams only 7 points apart (see table opposite).
However, top team Penlan A are due to play Tata Port Talbot A and are, quite realistically, expecting a maximum 30 point win. That should mean Penlan A will win the Division with 508 points.
2nd place Cam Gears A are due to play Penlan B and that could possibly cause them some points loss when compared to 3rd place Carmarthen A and 4th place Betws A. If Cam Gears A are to stay in 2nd spot them must get maximum points (30) or a minimum of 28 points to stay in 2nd place.
3rd place Carmarthen A play Carmarthen B and are also looking for maximum points. If Carmarthen A get maximum points and Cam Gears A get 27 points or less then Carmarthen A could, realistically, move into 2nd place.
4th place Betws A play bottom of the division Carmarthen D and look certain to get a guaranteed 30 points. This puts added pressure on the two teams above to get their maximum's.
At the bottom of the Division, Carmarthen D are in 12th place and look unlikely to take sufficient points for Betws A to move out of bottom place. As such it looks most likely that they will be relegated.
Carmarthen C are in 10th place and now look safe. Port Talbot A are in 11th place but are 27 points behind Carmarthen C.
Both teams have hard matches against teams in the top 4 places which we know are all chasing maximum points themselves. As such Port Talbot A would have to gain 28 points and Carmarthen C get no points in the last matches for Port Talbot A to get in to the safe zone.
Carmarthen C therefore look as if they will stay in the Premier Division next year.
‘E’ Team in Finals
Carmarthen ‘E’ have reached the Finals of the Tudor Jones/Team of Three Cup. This competition is a handicapped knockout tournament run parallel to the League. The team of John Finnemore, Rob Clayton and Joe Clayton won their Semi Final in the last game of the night when Rob Clayton won 2-
