What an incredible performance from all five of our teams with 4 winners and one draw! Can`t ask much more than that!
Div 1 – Group D – Dundee City A are only a point behind the leaders in group D but will need to win their last game and hope the leaders lose to have a chance of reaching the knockout stages! It was a close match against Stratham A in round 6 but last man standing Stephen Hogg pulled the win out of the bag again!
Div 2 – Group D – Dundee City B are only 2½ board points behind group D leaders Barnet Knight A with both on 10 match points. But the good thing is it’s in Dundee City B`s own hands as they play Barnet Knights A in the last match! The winner finishes top of group D to reach the knockout stage and a chance to win the division two title! I am sure if they finish 2nd in the group they will be promoted to division one! (will confirm ASAP!)
Div 4 – Group B – Congratulations to Dundee City C who finish top of group B with one match to spare! They have qualified for the knockout stage to become Division 4 champions! If I am correct they have also gained promotion to division 3 (will confirm ASAP)! What a performance this campaign by Dundee City C!
Div 4 – Group D – Dundee City D sit top of group D by ½ a board point from Streatham B (both on 9 points). They drew with them in round 6. Like Dundee City C it`s all in Dundee City E teams own hands, win 4 -0 against Plymouth 2 (in 4th place) and they finish top with a shot at the league title! Any other result and it will depend on how the other teams got on. If Dundee City D finish in 2nd place I am sure they are promoted to division three (will confirm). Squeaky bum time!
Div 5 – Swiss – Dundee City E have had a very good campaign this season and sit in 6th place on 7 points, 4 points behind the leaders. I am not sure but mathematically it still may be possible for Dundee City E to reach a promotion spot? Will find out ASAP. Just win their last match by as big a score line as they can manage and you never know!
