Over the last three weeks, Wasps started well but then fell foul when they forfeited three games – losing nine points and finishing in 10th place! Flamingos consolidated their place at the top with victories in their last two games against Bo-Peeps and Uplowman, ensuring that they would be champions. OPG made sure of second place with victories over Toucans and Bo-Peeps, finishing just two points behind Flamingos and six points in front of third-placed Uplowman, who ended the season with a defeat at the hands of the champions and victory over bottom placed J D Tyres.

If Hi Q hadn’t forfeited a match earlier in the season then they would have been in third place, but as it was they had to make do with fourth thanks to two victories – against JD tyres and Pixies.

Tip Top Trees finished fifth, despite losing to Pixies, they bounced back to defeat Howden Hawks who finished in seventh. Their end of season was disappointing, picking up six points when first Wasps and the Bo-Peeps forfeited their matches. In their final game Hawks met 3Ts and were defeated. Sidmouth Toucans finished in mid table, ending their season with a defeat at the hands of OPG, before drawing 35-35 with Tip Top Trees, the only draw of the season. Bo-Peeps lost to Flamingos, but played the game with six players, then forfeited the game to Hawks and were docked three points, before losing their final game to OPG, all in all a disappointing end to their campaign.

Pixies finished with a good win over 3Ts before losing their last game to Hi Q
