Essentials and Alcotops head for Section A

Essentials won Section B and will be heading to Section A for the first time in their history. Essentials first played in the D&DSL as Greyhound Essentials in 2010 and played at the Greyhound, Winterborne Kingston before moving to the Spitfire Club, Crossways in 2013. They won Section D in 2011 and were runner up in Section C in 2012, Essentials stayed in Section B for three seasons before relegation back to Section C in 2015, Essentials returned to Section B after they won Section C 2018.

Alcotops finished as runners up and it’s a quick return to Section A for the Alcotops after relegation from the A section last season, and it’s the third time that Alcotops have come runners up in Section B after doing so in both 2010 and 2017. Alcotops joined the league in 2000 and won Section E in 2002, and followed up with a fourth place finish in Section D which saw them promoted to Section C. Alcotops won Section C in 2007.

At the bottom Ray & Ken’s Old Spice Yokels spell of 13 seasons in Section B came to an end with defeat to Brewers Bees which means they join Top Pins in relegation to Section C.
