Tight at the top of the B League

With cup fixtures finished for the calendar year, the focus swung back towards the leagues this week, with all outstanding fixtures caught up in addition to the scheduled matches.

Sanday top the Williamsons Butchers 'A' league with 9 wins out of 9 so far, but there is a long way to go in a league where any of the top 5 are more than capable of beating each other. Sanday started the week with a high pressure but narrow win over Orkney Golf Club, before a hugely important victory over defending champions Untouchables later in the week. The Legion currently sit five points adrift despite a thumping win over the Murray Arms. The Bilco Boys showed continued improvement even though they lost out to the Exiles, whilst the Muppets still occupy the wooden spoon position following defeat to the Untouchables.

Things are incredibly tight down in the 'B' league with a measly three points separating the top five teams as they race for the two promotion slots. Robbie Norquoy hit the seasons highest checkout thus far, his 167 finish helping Tankerness to a win over the Wooden Spoons and leapfrogging the others to first place at this time. The Sands narrowly lost out to the The Toonies but remain one point clear of them and the Ale Stars in second place. Sitting a further point behind in fifth are Quoyburray who recorded a win over the Young Loons.

The 'B' league starts their festive break a week earlier than the 'A', with all league matches resuming in the week beginning Monday 8th January.
