There are 3 south- west teams in division 2: Wessex 1, Brown Jack, and Bristol 1. In division 2 (and 1 as well, but that's beside the main point) the teams are split up into 2 groups of 8. After 7 rounds the top 4 from each group meet in a promotion play- off to decide who gets promoted to div.1, whilst the bottom 4 from each group meet in a relegation play- off to decide who gets relegated to div. 3. During the play- offs only the results against other teams in the same play- off as yourself count (i.e if you're in the promotion play- offs only the results against fellow teams in the promotion play- offs count, and vice- versa for relegation play- offs).
Hope that explains it. It's a little tricky to follow, but I look at it like this: just turn up, beat the team sat opposite you, repeat 10 more times, and you're promoted.
Anyway, convoluted introduction over, here are the fixtures for the respective south- west teams:
AMCA Dragons v Wessex 1
Brown Jack v Barbican Youth 1
Bristol 1 v FCA 1
Round 8 is where the group stages end, and the play- offs begin. Bristol 1 are confirmed in the relegation pool before the round 7 matches. Likewise Wessex and Brown Jack in the other group are also confirmed in the relegation pool before the final round of group matches. It's impossible to say who the teams could be facing before round 7 is completed, and the final places are confirmed, but it could well be that there is a south- west derby match in round 8.
Happy New Year!
