Current League Secretary's Report

Meltonshire Ladies are the first team to secure a divisional title this season. Needing only 2 rubbers in their very last match at home to Longslade to take the honours, Lisa Pycroft and Sally Brown returned a maximum three rubbers to ensure a return to the topflight of the Ladies league. Longslade however won the match, just failing in their late charge in the title race. Elsewhere in the league South Leicestershire overtake Loughborough Students at the top of division 1 after beating them comprehensively, and Whitwick, comprising mostly juniors, showed how much they have improved in the adult league with an equally comprehensive win against Croakers.

In the Mens league, Loughborough Students hat trick of comfortable away victories lifts them to the top of the table with one match to play. This leaves a target for one of their rivals to win all of their games in hand to topple the Students. In division 2 Longslade are within touching distance of the title and a return to the topflight, whilst in division 3 Huncote became the first side to beat the leaders Regal Arts seconds; Mark Paradine and James Hurst with an impressive maximum for the victors. Paradine and Hurst repeated the feat for Huncote in their next encounter, a narrow win against Leys third string. In division 4b South Leicestershire thirds go top, but Quorn are close behind and as yet unbeaten. In division 6b Shepshed go above Panthers seconds following their whitewash of Birstall.

In the Mixed league Loughborough Town remain unbeaten at their halfway stage and close in on neighbours Loughborough Leys, whilst in division 3 Longslade’s narrow away win at Loughborough Students lifts them away from the relegation area.
