Well, it all kicked off at Western Terrace in the last and deciding match of the Autumn League when home side Falmouth 1 had to beat TR2 Young Pretenders by more than 10 pts to make history! Captain Matt was delighted to report on a successful evening for Jonny et al. They made it by two points with their 12-4 victory. A very fitting climax to an exciting league and that means Falmouth have booked the first place at the End-of-Season Play-Off Final to decide overall Cornwall Champions. There must have been oodles of Christmas cheer in the Falmouth club house following the match.
Bude SC eased over the line with a win at 2nd placed Falmouth 3 (Huw’s team) to continue their good run of titles in recent years. Captain Rob has declined promotion due to a ‘weakened’ squad with key players away in January & February. Those teams languishing at or near the foot of Div1 can therefore sigh a huge relief! Relegation may be on the cards, however, if Bude SC do the double by April with the knowledge that their squad will be that much stronger again by Sept. especially if their migratory #1 decides to over-winter in Cornwall!
