Townville seconds crowned champions

Townville seconds crowned champions

1 Oct 2017

Townville captain Ben Collinson finally got his hands on the Second Teams Conference Championship trophy - two weeks after the final game of the season.

The Castleford side finished level on points with Liversedge  on 345 and both teams had the same number of 18 wins from their 22 games so the outcome of the battle for top spot was decided by mathematics.

Each teams runs per wicket for was divided by their runs per wicket against. The outcome went in Townville's favour 2.25 to 1.80

It was cruel luck for Liversedge who do have the consolation of being promoted along with Townville to Championship Two for next season.
