News from the Eastern Counties

Phil Welham


“This seasons ‘E.C.B.L.’ once again has proved a great success with the
league’s new two division format proving popular. Cambridge took the 1st
division from Mid-Norfolk, with Albert Salisbury, Philip Welham and Fos
Wilson proving to once again the players to beat.

In the 2nd division a real dogfight for the championship and promotion
developed between Newmarket, Alby A, Norwich B and Raunds, with the
Suffolk team finally clinching a well deserved championship from Alby A as
runners-up. Ivan Chambers proved very strong clinching the division’s highest
break -124 and highest score of 616 awards. However this division’s purpose as
a feeder and development league has proved justified with such very promising
young players as Dean Bavister, Paul Hilsden and David Nichols improving

Next season Lincoln will enter two teams and the league would be
delighted to see entries from Ipswich, Colchester, Bury St. Edmunds, Spalding
and anyone in the Eastern Counties.”
