2016 week 2

Week 2 of the league season produced another set of close games.

Nursery and King & Queen produced a thriller with Nursery just clinching the win, The points were enough for King & Queen to lead the table. Sale Excelsior bounced back for derby defeat to beat South Manchester and close behind the Warrington men. It was heartache for Lloyds at Tottington. Another close game saw the Bury men edge a thriller.

2016 week 1

The 2016 season of the Manchester Premier League started on 11th May, under I’m pleased to say, sunny skies.

Last year’s winners, Tonge, opened their account with five winners and the aggregate at home to Nursery. The Lloyds v Sale Excelsior local derby was as close as ever. Lloyds were runner-up last season and will be hoping to go one better this season. Third placed South Manchester RBL started the season with a convincing win over Richmond. King and Queen continued their improvement from last season and will be thinking of challenging for the league title.
