Eldon win sends the Rookies down

Posted by Chris G on April 25, 2011

Further details of Eldon Leisure’s 3-2 win over Tynemouth Trojans will follow later, but of more interest to Division 1 watchers will be the effect of that result on the relegation places: the Leisure have jumped off the trapdoor at the last minute and it’s Jesmond Rookies whose three-year stay in the top flight is over, barring any summer reshuffles.

Hearty commiserations must go to the Rookies whose battle for survival, without any former Zollner champions making guest appearances on Board 1, was as intriguing a subplot to the league season as ever. Congratulations to Forest Hall A and Eldon Leisure whose full-strength sides, at least, have proven themselves deserving of a place in next season’s Division 1.
