It’s early days in the Winmau Centre Thursday Night Champions League and possibly too early to speak of league champions but Mick Baker, reigning champion for the last four seasons looks to be well on course to making it five wins in as many seasons. At the time of going to print Jordan Ward tops the table with 96 points from 20 games however Ward only leads on average as Mick Baker is on the same 96 points, but with him having played just 17 games he has three in hand on Ward.
Third in the table Sam Aitkens is a further eight points off the top on 88 points, he has played 21 games which is more than both of the two players above him.
In the centre’s Monday Night League after completing 16 fixtures The Untouchables lead the field with 562 points, they are closely followed by Above Average who after playing 15 games are on 556 points just six short of the leaders with a game in hand which could net them a possible maximum points of 48.
Third placed Misfits have also only played 15 games and with 536 points again a big win would see them overtake Untouchables. The game in hand for Above Average and Misfits is against each other and should the former get anything above six points from the game and their opponents more than 26 they would still both move above Untouchables.
