26 Jul:
Div 1: Neston1 won 14-4 at home to WallaseyM1 and therefore regain the title from Hoylake1. Birkenhead1 go 3rd by virtue of having won more matches after finishing level on points with WallaseyM1. Prenton1 won 14-4 at Alderley1 but it was not quite enough to avoid the playoff because Hooton1 beat runners up Hoylake1. Alderley1 return to div2.
Div2: Undefeated
Upton1 win the division. PortSunlight1 won 11-6 over Hoylake2 and finished level on points with Neston2, however Neston2 go into the playoff with Prenton1 despite an 11-7 defeat at home to Upton1 and a 2pt penalty for being a player short because they have won more matches than PortSunlight1. Hoylake2 did enough at PortSunlight1 to stay up and Heswall2 beat Neston3 12-6 in the relegation decider to stay up by 2points. WallaseyM2 are relegated.
Div 3: Thorndale1 won the decider 12-6 at home to CheshireOaks1 to inflict their first defeat. Oxton1 won the decider 10-7 at home to Birkenhead2 to stay up and send Birkenhead2 down by a mere 2 points. Pinewood1 are relegated.
Div 4: Prenton3 lost their 100% record at home to Alderley2 who made themselves safe. Thorndale2 gain promotion with a 14-4 win at home to Neston4. Hoylake3 9-8 win at home to Bertram2 was not enough to see them runners up but it was enough for Bertram2 to stay up. PortSunlight2 won 16-0 at home to relegated Heswall4 and it means Neston4 are also relegated.
Div 5: Upton2 win the division & Thorndale3 are promoted. WallaseyM3 are relegated together with Birkenhead3 who lost their deciding match 16-1 at home to Thorndale4.
Div 6: No change in order. Upton2 win the division with a 16-0 win at home to NorthCheshire2. Oxton2 gave themselves a chance with a 16-0 win at Birkenhead4 and are also promoted. NorthCheshire2 & Birkenhead4 will have to seek reelection.
Men Div 1: Prenton1 retain the title and Neston1 are runners up. Hooton1 are relegated together with Alderley1 who finish 1 point behind Thorndale1. Thorndale1 lost 8-0 at home to Prenton1 and Alderley1 lost 7-4 at WallaseM1.
Men Div 2: Bertram1 go into the final 2 matches with a 4pt lead. NorthCheshire1 maybe favourites to go up with them although Oxton1 & Hoylake1 can still spoil their party. NorthCheshire2 & WallaseyM2 will need to seek reelection.

21 Jul:
  EXCITING FINISH TO SEASON:
Div 1: No change in order. Neston1 win 9-8 at Hoylake1 and are almost certainly champions, as they only need 3pts at home to Wallasey M1 in the last match. To avoid the playoff Prenton1 need to gain 12pts on Hooton1. Alderley1 are relegated.
Div2: Undefeated Upton1 win the division. Neston2 go 6pts ahead of PortSunlight1 (they were level before match 13. FS entered PortSunlight1 score as 12 instead of 14). WallaseyM2 are relegated. Neston3 gain 8pts on Heswall2 are now 4pts ahead of them. They meet in final match. Hoylake2 are also in danger as they are only 9pts clear.
Div 3: CheshireOaks1 & Thorndale1 are promoted. CheshireOaks1 (undefeated) lead by 4pts and the decider will be last match of season at Thorndale. Pinewood1 are relegated. Oxton1 are at home to Birkenhead2 to decide relegation (although NorthCheshire1 are not mathematically safe).
Div 4: Undefeated Prenton3 win the division. Only 12pts separate Hoylake3, Thorndale2, Bertram2 & Alderley2 for runners up. Relegation looks certain to be Heswall4 with PortSunlight2, Neston4 & Alderley2 respectively in favourites to join them. Bertram2 look safe but not mathematically safe.
Div 5: Upton2 win the division & Thorndale3 are promoted. WallaseyM3 are relegated and then it’s between Birkenhead3 & Thorndale4. Birkenhead3 need to win by 9pts when they meet in the last match of season.
Div 6: No change in order. Upton2 are in the driving seat with Oxton2 only 5pts behind (it could be more depending on appeal). Both are promoted. NorthCheshire2 will have to seek reelection. Birkenhead4 may also need to as they are level on pts.
Men Div 1: Prenton1 retain the title and Neston1 are runners up. Hooton1 are relegated. Alderley1, Thorndale1 & Prenton2 could join them with only 7pts separating them before the final matches.
Men Div 2: Bertram1 go into the final 2 matches with a 4pt lead over NorthCheshire1 and they have a 9pt lead over Oxton1 with Hoylake1 a further 2pts behind. NorthCheshire2 & WallaseyM2 will need to seek reelection.

14 Jul:  
Div 1: No change in order. Neston1 gained 5pts on Hoylake1. They play each other in next match. Hooton1 are 16pts clear of playoff which still looks odds on to be Prenton1. Alderley1 are relegated.
Div2: No change in order. Undefeated
Upton1 are 24pts clear of Neston2 (who only lead PortSunlight1 by 2pts) but still have Neston2 & PSunlight1 to play. WallaseyM2 look certain to go down. Neston3 gained 8pts on Heswall2 and are now only 4pts behind them and they meet in match 14.Hoylake2 & Prenton2 are not safe yet?
Div 3: CheshireOaks1 & Thorndale1 are promoted. CheshireOaks1 lead by 7pts and the decider could still be last match of season at Thorndale. Pinewood1 are relegated. Any one of the other 5 teams could go with them as only 14 points separate them.
Div 4: Undefeated
Prenton3 lead by 25pts and look certain to top the division. Only 5pts separate Thorndale2, Hoylake3 & Bertram2 for runners up. It is still technically possible that any of the teams in 2nd–8th position could be relegated with Heswall4, Neston4, PSunlight2 & Alderley2 respectively in most danger.
Div5: Upton2 & Thorndale3 are promoted. WallaseyM3 are relegated and then it’s between Thorndale4 & Birkenhead3 (level on pts). They meet in last match of season.
Div6: No change in order.
Upton3 are in the driving seat with Oxton2 only 4pts behind. Both look certain to be promoted. Birkenhead4 will probably have to seek reelection. NorthCheshire2 may also need to?
Men Div 1: Prenton1 retain the title and Neston1 are runners up. It is close for relegation between Hooton1, Alderley1, Thorndale1 & Prenton2 with only 6pts separating the 4 teams with 2 matches to play.
Men Div 2: Bertram1 go into the final 3 matches with at least a 6pt lead and NorthCheshire1 maybe favourites to go up with them although Oxton1 & Hoylake1 can still spoil their party. Oxton1 made the top4 by only 1pt above Hooton2 after an 8-0 defeat at NorthCheshire1. NorthCheshire2 & WallaseyM2 will need to seek reelection.
Ladies Div 1: Neston are champions. Only 2pts separate the other 3 teams.

9 Jul: Mens division 2 final 3 fixtures  (for matches 13,14,15) published. Also 1st half 2011 Result cards on flickr.
9 Jul:
Div 1: The last 2 holders of the title will finish 1st & 2nd. Hoylake1 get 6pts nearer Neston1 and they play each other in match 13. Hooton1 go a further 8pts clear of playoff which now looks odds on to be Prenton1. Alderley1 will be relegated.
Div2: Undefeated
Upton1 score maximum to remain in the driving seat but still have Neston2 & PSunlight1 to play. After heavy defeats WallaseyM2 & Neston3 are favourites for relegation but the last 3 matches could see a change.
Div 3:
CheshireOaks1 & Thorndale1 will be promoted. CheshireOaks1 gained 3 pts and are now 9pts ahead but the decider could be last match of season at Thorndale.1. Pinewood1 look certain to be relegated. Any one of the other 5 teams could go with them as 16 points only separate them.
Div 4: Undefeated
Prenton3 go further ahead and look certain to top the division. Thorndale2, Hoylake3 & Bertram2 all lost ground. It is still possible that any of the teams in 2nd – 8th position could be relegated.
Div5: Upton2 &
Thorndale3 will be promoted. Thorndale3 beat Upton2 11-10. WallaseyM3 are relegated and then only 1pt separates Birkenhead3 & Thorndale4. They meet in last match of season.
Div6: Upton2 are in the driving seat with Oxton2 on their heels. Both look certain to be promoted. Birkenhead4 will probably have to seek reelection. NorthCheshire2 may also need to?
Men Div 1: Difficult to see any change from
Prenton1 retaining the title and Neston1 being runners up. It is close for relegation between Hooton1, Thorndale1, Alderley1 & Prenton2.
Men Div 2: Bertram1 go into the final 3 matches with at least a 5pt lead and NorthCheshire1 maybe favourites to go up with them although Oxton1 & Hoylake1 can still spoil their party. It could be very close. Hooton2 just miss out by 2pts after an 8-0 defeat at NorthCheshire1. NorthCheshire2 & WallaseyM2 will need to seek reelection.

1 Jul: Reminder for Mens division 2: ONLY results in by 9 Jul will be included in the table for final 3 scheduled fixtures.

29 Jun: 
Div 1: Neston1 still 13 pts ahead of Hoylake1. but still have to play Hoylake1 & 3rd placed WallaseyM1. Alderley1 look certain for the drop and Prenton1 for playoff.
Div 2: Upton1 go 20pts above Neston2 but still have to play Neston2 & 3rd placed PSunlight1 who are only 4pts behind Neston2. Wallasey Manor2 look certain for the drop and then it is close between Neston3 & Hoylake2 & Heswall2
Div 3: Cheshire Oaks1 lead Thorndale1 by only 6pts. Match14 sees them meet in what could be a decider. Pinewood1 look down. It is then close between Oxton1 & Birkenhead2 (5pts) who also meet in match14 which again could be a decider.
Div 4: Prenton3 now have 22pt lead in what is  the closest of divisions with only 31pts between 2nd & 8th. Thorndale2 are currently in promotion place.
Div 5: Difficult to see Upton2 being caught with Thorndale3 hot favourites to go up with them. Wallasey Manor3 look down and then it's between Birkenhead3 & Thorndale4 who meet in match14 in possibly another decider? WallaseyM3 will have to apply for reelection.
Div 6: Upton3 lead Oxton2 by 16pts as a result of a 15-3 win over them on the grass. Oxton3 are only 3pts behid but have played 1 game more. Birkenhead4 will almost certainly need to seek reelection.
Div 1 Men: Can anyone challenge Prenton1? Neston1 look certain to be runnersup. At the bottom only 1pt separates Thorndale1, Alderley1 & Hooton1 with Prenton2 only 5pts ahead. Thorndale1 & Alderley1 meet in match12.
Div 2 Men: With the final matches next week before the division splits Bertram1 lead by 9pts and will go into final run in top 4. The other 3 places are between Oxton1 NCheshire1 Hoylake1 Hooton2 & Alderley2. NCheshire1 & Hoylake1 have rearranged matches to play. NCheshire2 will need to apply for reelection with WallaseyM2.
Div 1 Ladies: With 1 match to go Neston1 take over at the top 1pt ahead of Thorndale1 .


16 Jun:
Div 1: Neston1 go 4 points further ahead of Hoylake1. Wallasey Manor1 overtake Hooton1. Alderley1 look certain for the drop.
Div 2:
Upton1 & Neston2 stretch their lead. Wallasey Manor2 look certain for the drop.
Div 3:
Cheshire Oaks1 go 4 more points ahead of Thorndale1. Both look certain for promotion. Pinewood1 look for the drop.
Div 4:
Prenton3 just lead way from Hoylake3. Port Sunlight2 have jeapodised their chances by being 2 players short. All close
Div 5:
Upton2 setting the pace over Thorndale3. Hoylake4 could challenge. Wallasey Manor3 could escape with full teams.
Div 6: Between
Oxton2 & Upton3. Birkenhead4 will probably need to seek reelection.
Div 1 Men: Can anyone challenge
Prenton1? Drop between Thorndale1, Alderley1 & Hooton1.
Div 2 Men: Looks like Bertram1 & Oxton1 with possibilities from Hoylake1 & North Cheshire1.
Div 1 Ladies: It's going to be close.
9 Jun: WTL CM1 will be held at 8pm on 18 Jun at Port Sunlight LTC.

2011 Below:
28 Oct: Minutes of WTL CM2 published. Please note AGM is 7.30 on Wed 23 November 2011 at Hoylake LTC.

30 Sep:
A very successful WTL Presentation Dinner was held at Oxton on 16 Sep. The photographs are on Flickr at  http://www.flickr.com/groups/1815555@N22/   . They show in the reverse order in which I loaded them (don't know how to change that).
17 Aug:  Hooton 1 Men gain promotion with an 8-0 win in rearranged match at Thorndale 2. 
6 Aug: MENS & LADIES DIVISIONS SUMMARY TO DATE:.
Men 1st Division:N Cheshire 1 are relegated even if they win their rearranged match tomorrow aWallasey M 1 8-0 and therefore tie with Thorndale 1 on points they will have won less matches.
Men 2nd Division: Helsby 1 are still favourites even after losing 7-3 at Hoylake 1. To overtake them Hooton 1 would need to gain 14 points (probably 2 8-0 wins required both at Helsby 1 on Monday and in the rearranged match at Thorndale 2 the Monday after) Hoylake 1 could sneak promotion over Hooton 1with a big win at home to Alderley 2 on Thursday coupled with Hooton 1 failing to pick up 9 points in their last 2 matches (see above).
 Ladies1st Division: A disappointing end to the ladies season when potential winners Neston 1 failed to raise a team for the title decider. Wallasey M 1 are champions.

30 Jul: MENS DIVISIONS SUMMARY TO DATE:
Men 1st Division: Prenton 1 are champions with RU Neston 1. Bertram 1 are relegated plus one of  N Cheshire 1,Wallasey M 1 or Thorndale 1. N Cheshire 1 are the most likely because they are 7 points behind Thorndale 1 and have to go to Prenton 1 and play their rearranged match from 17 Jul at Wallasey M 1 (which could be critical - will Thorndale be at Wallasey Manor on 7 Aug to cheer Wallasey M 1 on?).
Men 2nd Division: Helsby 1 are favourites having an 11 point lead over Hooton 1 and play both Hooton 1 and Hoylake 1 in their last 2 matches. RU is between Hooton 1 & Hoylake 1. Hooton 1 are still 7 points ahead of Hoyalke 1 despite losing at home to Hoylake 1 6-3. Wooden spoon goes to Alderley 3 who will need to apply for reelection.
Zero problems - Thank you
28 Jul: SOME CLOSE FINISHES TO SEASON (subject to WTL CM2)
1st Division: Hoylake 1 take the title from Neston 1 by the small margin of 5 points.and are champions for the 1st time. Heswall 2 are relegated.
2nd Division:  Alderley 1 win the division. Hooton 1's 11-7 win at Prenton 2 gain them prmotion by 1point from Neston 2 who beat the winners 9-8. Port Sunlight (12-5 winners at Upton 1) were only 3 points behind Neston 2. Thorndale 1's 10 all draw at Hoylake 2 was not quite enough only (3 points) to overtakePrenton 2 and avoid relegation.
3rd Division: Neston 3 win the division with Wallasey M 2 also promoted. P Sunlight 2 are relegated after losing 11-7 at home to Birkenhead 2 while Oxton 1 beat Cheshire Oaks 2 11-7 at Oxton so finishing only 6 points ahead.
4th Division: N Cheshire 1 confirmed their title with a 15-2 win at home to Bertram 2. Heswall 3 beat Prenton 3 11-8 in the promotion decider. Upton 2 are relegated by 4 points after losing 11-7 at Alderley 2.
5th Division:Neston 4 increased their advantage over Heswall 4 to ensure the title. Heswall 4 did enough at home to Wallasey M 3 to gain promotion. 4 sets the other way would have seen Wallasey Manor 3 take their place. Not being able to filed a full team early in the season probably cost Wallasey M 3 promotion. Oxton 2 lost 13-4 at home to Prenton 4 and are relegated.
6th Division:It is a double for Thorndale with both Thorndale 3 & Thorndale 4 gaining promotionion. Thorndale 4 beat closest rivals Pinewood 2 15-4.. The decider for the wooden spoon between Birkenhead 4 & N Cheshire 2 was won convincingly 15-2 by N Cheshire 2 to force Birkenhead 4 to apply for reelection.
Men 1st Division: Prenton 1 are champions with RU between Neston 1 & Prenton 2 which could go to the last match Prenton 2 v Neston 1. Relegation looks like Bertram 1 plus either N Cheshire 1 or Wallasey M 1. Thorndale 1 are probably safe by virtue of a 4-4 draw at N Cheshire 1.
Men 2nd Division: Helsby 1 are favourites RU between Hooton 1 & Hoylake 1. The 3 teams play each other in the final matches. Wooden spoon goes to Alderley 3 who will need to apply for reelection.

24 Jul: EXCITING FINISH TO SEASON:

5th Division:Neston 4 have an 8 pt advantage over Heswall 4. Heswall 4 are at home to Wallasey M 3 with an 8pt advantage. Relegation: Oxton 2 need a very big win at home to Prenton 4 if they are to escape the drop. Neston 5 are safe after winning their last few matches

8 Nov: The WTL Presentation Dinner was well supported and all seemed to enjoy the dinner, presentations and disco. Many thanks to Mike Withy, who during the night, lent me 3 documents from the archives (Mike's loft). The documents generated a lot of interest:  1. 1985 League rankings   2. AGM 1985 minutes   3. 1988 AGM minutes.  I have also put them under Rankings and Meetings/Minutes.
30 Jul: Neston 5 pipped Birkenhead 3 by 1 point to win Div 6. In the deciding match Neston 5 v Birkenhead 3 Neston won 2 sets 7/6 therefore one could say the division was won on a tie-break! Could hardly have been closer!
