The South-East Regional League got underway at Fareham Academy for the final Sunday of November. Some scintillating displays saw strong starts from Fareham Black and Guildford Inferno as Guildford look to win their third back-to-back regional Division 1 title. In the first round Fareham Black went top with victories against Portsmouth Drakes and Guildford Ignite.
Guildford came out on top in the battle for Super League success defeating Bury Kings in the final round of the season. After 35 minutes of tense tchoukball Guildford’s class came through to make it successive Super League titles.
Going into the final weekend Kings sat top of the division but realistically whoever won the all-important grudge match would take home the title.
Headingley secured their second Division One title success in three years after a crucial derby win over Leeds. It was a remarkable season that saw just five points separate top from bottom. After four straight wins it looked like promotion was going to be straightforward for Headingley, who were promoted in 2016 before being relegated from the Super League the year after.
