Winter League 2015/16

 WL Results
We are 6 weeks into the Winter League. We had to abandon the week 5 round due to the course closure, every team was deemed to have drawn their week 5 match.
The Panthers lead by Jimmy Graham are the only unbeaten team and are 3 points clear of the Eagles who lost just once. In 3rd place are the Bears (who beat the Eagles in week 4).
We now have a break for 2 weeks and we will re-commence with Round 7 on the 9th and 10th of January. With just 12 points between the top of the table and the bottom of the table and 12 more matches to play, all teams are still very much in the competition.

Happy Christmas!
