The Premier Section results compared to previous seasons have been unexpected as AK Eagles remains the only team to maintain a 100% record with Whiterose in close second place who drop 1 points. The rest of the the teams have lost one of their first two fixtures with Bradford Moor, Darulshafa and Diamond losing both of their games.
Both Cricademia and Leeds stallions remain unbeaten in the Crescent Section with mix results for the rest of the team in the section.
Jinnah Section also has a similar pattern to the Premier Section, Great Horton Sports maintains a 100% record with Heaton Park in close second place who drop 2 points in their first fixture. Both Mylahore Tabs A and Khan have lost their first two fixtures with the remaining teams who have lost one of their two fixtures.
The Star Section bucks the trend as top four secured their second win of the session, whilst the bottom four lost both the opening games.
Eid ul Fitr (Monday 2nd May)
As agreed at the League’s AGM if Eid ul Fitr or Eid ul Adha fall on a fixture day for most of the clubs, all the fixture would be cancelled and 6 points will be awarded to all teams.
A number of North African and Middle Eastern countries have already announced that they expect to celebrate (inshallah) Eid ul Fitr on Monday, 2nd May which would indicate that the Sunday fixtures will go ahead as planned and the Crescent Fixtures planned for the 2nd May are most likely to be cancelled and awarded 6 points. We will monitor the situation during this week and update club as soon as possible.
