As we approach the business end of the season some of our teams are still involved in title/promotion/relegation battles:
Gambit 1 lie 3rd in division 1 and still have a chance of winning the title. Grantham 1 remain favourites but have to play 2nd favourites Ashfield 1 who themselves still have to face Gambit 1.
Gambit 2’s adventure in division 1 is almost over (phew!). Only a crazy set of results would see them stay up. The last time Gambit 2 were in division 1, 2005-6, was the last time Gambit 1 won the title. Could history repeat itself?
After a slightly sticky period, Gambit 3 secured safety in division 2 last week with an excellent win over Ashfield 2 and should now finish comfortably in mid-table.
Gambit 4 have an outside chance of promotion in division 3 but also look like ending up mid-table.
Gambit 5 look set for their highest finish in division 5 since their 3rd place in 2006-7, no doubt helped by West Nottingham’s 3 teams self destructing.
