This means that Phil McConnell is the Homan League winner for 2014-15 - and is thus the "Club Champion". (It might have been a different story if Dennis Russell had been able to play his games!)

Dunleavy League

This is how the table finished up:

Many congratulations to the winner David on his impressive 100% record, and to Ken on achieving a hard-fought second place.

Promotion and Relegation

If the same completion format is retained in 2015-16, and no highly-graded new players enter the leagues, then for the first half of next season:

  • Dennis and James will be relegated to the Dunleavy League
  • David and Ken will be promoted to the Homan League
  • Cliff will play Roy in a play-off to determine the fifth player in the Homan League.

Cookworthy Cup

As previously announced, James Fowler and Barclay Best finished 1 - 1 after the two-legged final, which means they share the Cookworthy Cup. They both got some excellent wins on their way to the final - congratulations to both.

Challengers League

The Challengers League provides an opportunity for members to play graded games on evenings when they aren't involved in a match or one of the above competitions. It finished thus:
