The Championship is gathering momentum, albeit that the number of All Gloster showsare still being severely curtailed. West Midland Gloster Association’s cancellation at the last minute due to Avian Flue curtailment left a big dent in the show calendar.
Regardless of that fact after Swansea and North of England submitted their returns, Skeffington and Gill still top the charts increasing their tally by 150 points from taking all before them at Swansea, closely followed by a strong challenge mounted by George Nicol, who moved up from 4th place to second after adding 130 points from his trip to NoE.
Two more partnerships, R & I Wright and Beech & Brown joined the fray entering the league table with 10 points apiece.
Strong performances by R Wood and S Hill saw Sam Hill enter the Novice Championship table in third place and Rob Wood in mid-table. Ruby Lambert continues to lead the Junior section.
The final run in ends mid December, could there be a nail biting finish to the first Premier League? Will Skeffington & Gill hang on to their 80 point lead? Will it be whittled back? Can George bridge the gap? Will there be tactical exhibiting by the partnerships, splitting to get to as many closing shows as possible and gaining as many points as possible ?
