Draycott A have retained the Men's 1 title with 4 weeks of the season still to run. They are 16 points

Suburban league were also rained off.

in the second part of the campaign as they lie off the pace at the foot of Men 1 and 2 respectively.

bottom of both Men's 2 and 3 divisions.

||Strong Start by Alsager A:
Alsager have made a strong start to their campaign in Men's 2, dropping just ½ point from their first 3 games
in what appears to be a competitive division. There is a familiar story developing in Men's 1 with Draycott A and Florence A
going well, although at this early point of the season, one of their nearest challengers may yet do a 'Leicester City'.
Men's 3 also looks as though it will be a tight affair with 4 of the opening 7 matches ending in draws.
