League results 2022
Note from the secretary
Division 1 winners are Caerleon A, two points ahead of Caerleon Blues. This ensured a much closer finish than in previous years. For Caerleon A, 2022 represented a fifth consecutive Division 1 title.
In Division 2, there is promotion for Upper Cock and Greenlawn B. Division 2's reputation for close finishes was again demonstrated with just 1 point covering the next 5 teams.
In Division 3, The Pottery A romped to promotion, with consecutive league wins, by 16 points over their fellow promotees, Clytha B. Further club success has come with promotion to Division 3 for The Pottery B.
In Division 4, newcomers Ffrwd Crusaders became champions by edging The Pottery B by 2 points, who themselves prevented a Ffrwd 1-2 by the narrowest of margins.
Relegation will be decided at the a.g.m. taking into account the 2023 league structure.
Cup and Plate
The finals of the Henry Powell cup competitions took place at the Greyhound Inn, Llantrisant on Saturday 10th September.
This year proved to be another worthy final of top-quality play.
One game lasted just under 2 hours!
In the main cup final the Wheatsheaf Eagles beat Ffrwd Fighters 3 games to 1.
In the plate competition the Caerleon Blues beat Machen by 4 games to 0.
This was the 2nd final running that the Eagles have won the cup.
A great competition and played to a very good standard and sportsmanship.
A mention for their appearance must be made to Machen from Division 2 as the other 3 teams were from the top of Division 1.
Another special thanks to the supporters who came to watch especially the large group from the Twyn y Ffrwd as they certainly added to the occasion.
After the matches, refreshments were taken all together in the great spirit of the BIG League.
Congratulations also for the meal and preparing the pitches go to Kelly and Steve who hosted the occasion at their pub, the Greyhound, and it proved a glorious setting on a sunny September day.
