This weekend saw the first Junior League matches of the 2018/19 season take place.
With 18 teams turning out across 5 Divisions throughout the day, it guaranteed some enthralling competition for our junior shuttlers.
Division 5 teams were the first to get the league going. Wrexham B topped the division after some dominating 6-0 performances against Llanferres B and Wrexham C. This left Llanferres B and Wrexham C to battle it out for second place and what a thriller it was. Although Llanferres won the match 5-1, there was only 8 points between the two, which shows how close the games were.
Next up was Division 4, where Deeside and Wrexham A both gave outstanding performances only dropping 1 game each against Connah's Quay C and with both securing 6-0 wins over Buckley B, the battle for top spot was decided on points. It wasn't to be for Wrexham as Deeside pipped them by 2 points. You can't get much closer than that!!!
In Division 3 Mold C easily secured their promotion to Division 2 by beating Christleton B 6-0 and Flint B 5-1. That left the battle for second place between Christleton and Flint B. With a 5-1 win going Christleton's way, this decided the final standings of the division.
With the scoring increased to 21 points for the top two Divisions, excitement was building to see how the new format would present itself. Division 2 saw Mold B and Buckley A were the dominant forces both beating Connah's Quay B and Christleton A 6-0. This meant that top spot was again decided on points. This time it was Mold who claimed 1st position with the least points conceded over both their matches.
Finally onto the 1st Division, where the standard of play did not disappoint. Mold A and Connah's Quay A were in no mood to hang around, both dispatching Llanferres A and Flint A in an efficient manner with 6-0 wins. With just 11 points more conceded by Connah's Quay A, this meant that Mold A took the early lead to become League Champions at the end of the season.
Our next fixture is on November 10th 2018. We look forward to seeing you all there!!!
