There is no getting away from the fact that this year's Division 5 is distinctly odd.

In this year's Division 8, there look to be substantially more teams who will be looking down to the bottom few places with trepidation, rather than looking upwards with excitement. Three teams need to improve on last year's showing just to avoid relegation, and another couple may have slipped a bit over the winter. Time to look at the runners and riders.

Fate (or the hands of the OCC as it can also be known as), has thrown together eight teams in Division 14 who have very little past history. Who would have thought for instance that Pembroke 6 haven't played a single match against any team from Civil Service in the past five seasons?

Knockharley responded to the disappointment of being put in Division 6 for 2015 in the best way possible, by winning the title, and putting to bed any doubts over their right to be in Division 5. It was Knockharley 1's sixth league title, and their first since 2009

Knockharley won Division 6 with the lowest points total of all the 16 Divisions. Their 162 points was bettered by North County who finished third. Knockharley suffered greatly with the weather and other obstacles with 5 no results, but allied with 7 wins and 2 defeats they triumphed.
