Premier League Winners Stats

The end of the season is a time to reflect on the year’s events, and since we’ve had three teams gain more than 100 points this year we thought we’d take a look at how this compares with previous seasons.

Since the Premier League was reformed instead of the Tuesday and Thursday leagues in 2012-13, there have been 7 winners of the title, so we at the CDSA thought we’d compare those winning teams to see which one has the best record.

Given that most seasons have had different amount of matches, we averaged out the amount of points per match

2012/13 – Savoy – 18 matches – 71 points – Average points per game 3.9

2013/14 – Penarth Road B – 15 matches – 61 points – Average points 4.1

2014/15 – County Cons – 21 matches – 94 points – Average points 4.5

2015/16 – Taff’s Well B – 22 matches – 101 points – Average points 4.6

2016/17 – Canton Libs A – 26 matches – 119 points – Average points 4.6

2017/18 – Savoy – 24 matches – 104 points – Average points 4.3

2018/19 – Savoy – 24 matches – 109 points – Average points 4.5

Breaks

Dylan Emery 62 (Trecenydd Snooker)

Mackintosh have finished the season as Premier League runners-up after Taff’s Well B’s 4-1 win away at Cuesaders wasn’t enough to overcome Ronnie Allen’s side in second place. Needing an unlikely 5-0 win to get past Mackintosh, Tom Cross’s side started strongly and took a 4-0 lead, but Ryan Bowgen managed to win the last on the colours to leave Taff’s Well level on points in second place, but Mackintosh won one more game to take the runners-up spot.

Savoy completed their outstanding season in style with a 4-1 win at Taff’s Well A to finish on 109 points, with 21 wins from 24 matches. Congratulations to Colin Lane and his side for their superb achievement this season, and they will be looking to win the double when they take on Taff’s Well B in the final of the Malcolm Keenor Trophy in a couple of weeks.

Division One champions Canton Libs B also finish the season strongly with their 4-1 win against Senghenydd being their fourth consecutive victory. They will now replace their opponents in the Premier League next year, with Tony Palkowski’s side being relegated to Division One.

Fairwater Cons finish the season in fourth place in the Premier League and will be looking to continue their good form at the start of next season to move them back into contention for the title, whilst Cathays Cons ended their year with a 3-2 win at home to Canton Libs Z.

Rob Hayes 39 (Taff’s Well B)

Congratulations to Savoy after they were crowned CDSA 2018-19 Premier League champions after a 5-0 victory against Mackies Lost Boys put them out of reach of Mackintosh and Taff’s Well B and ensured that they retain their title. After a shaky start where they lost two of their first five matches, the Barry outfit have won 17/18 in an outstanding run that has put them past the 100-point mark with a game still to play. Their title is very well-deserved and congratulations to Colin Lane’s side whose success has been built on the superb trio of ex-professional and three-time Player of the Year Mark Bennett, two-time Cardiff Open winner Ryan Rowlands and two-time Cardiff Open finalist and former Player of the Year Sam Thomas, as well as Lee Greening and captain Colin Lane meaning a talented and consistent line-up that proved too good for the rest of the league.

Mackintosh beat Cuesaders 4-1 to finish their season on 101 points, but Taff’s Well B matched that result against neighbours Taff’s Well A to remain five points behind Ronnie Allen’s side. Mackintosh remain strong favourites to claim the runners-up spot they’ve held for a long time, but a 5-0 win at Cuesaders on the last day of the season for Taff’s Well B can clinch 2nd place for Tom Cross’s team.
