The updated East Midlands Regional League Final Results 2007- 2008 document can be found on the Downloads page.
In November 2007 Lincoln Imps B were deducted 1 point for playing an unregistered player. They should have been deducted 5 points.
The results table has now been amended so Lincoln Imps have finished on 29 points 1 less than Cliftonettes.
Therefore Cliftonettes do not have to attend the Regional Qualifying Tournament on the 8th June since they have secured their place in Division 2 of the Regional League for 2008- 2009.
The aim is to improve on this season's results & gain a HIGHER position in Division 2. In the top two places would be great!!
