31st March 2020

CORONA VIRUS UPDATE

In accordance with advice from the EBU & the Government & Public Health England the Council of
the MCBA have decided to suspend the League immediately.

Obviously no more face to face matches can take place until further notice.

It is hoped that the season can be completed some time before next September.

We'll have to wait and see how everything pans out first

In the meantime teams can play their matches online at BBO but only if all eight players agree.

There is a link above on how to set up an online match.

 


Current leaders are

Div 1   St Titus
Div 2   Petersfield
Div 3   Silver & Black
 Div 4   Four Dummies 
Div 5   The Enigmas
Div 6   The Acolites
         Div 7a
  The Wakefields
         Div 7b
  Mudlarks

Well done to Estelle Megitt's Acolites from Div 6 who have now completed all their matches as have newcomers to the league,
Mrs No Trumps Set and Ruby Tuesday in Div 7b.  I hope all the new teams have enjoyed their first season and will come back again next year.

St. Titus appear to be marching towards another League win in Div 1 with five big wins so far including a remarkable 30-0 defeat of Grasshoppers
Petersfield are back on top of Div 2 after Broadway Danny Rose suffered their first defeat of the season at the hands of Red Bull
Silver & Black are now leading Div 3 with Manchester A very close behind
Likewise Conquering Hearts have now played four matches and are close to longtime Div 4 leaders The Four Dummies
In Div 5 The Enigmas are having things all their own way but Jems have moved up to second place
Acolites have retaken the lead of Div 6 from the 4 Bridgemates who have now dropped to 3rd although this is the closest division overall
No change in 7a and 7b which are led by The Wakefields and The Mudlarks repectively


The following teams have all had 30-0 wins

St. Titus, Mutton Madras (2), Inverted Minors, Grasshoppers, Agamemnon, Imposter System, Silver & Black, City Aces, Monton Misfits (2),
Rueful Rabbits Reformed, Skaters, Acolites, Mudlarks (2), Lauren & Friends, Mrs No Trumps Set and Pam's People

Please send me any interesting hands and I'll publish them here
