For Season 3, the RA1 team enjoyed an unexpected promotion to Division 5 as the result of reorganisation of the lower divisions and, for all Divisions but the last, having all-play-all groups of eight. There is a new Division 7.
Division 5 comprises four groups all-play-all, with the top two in each group going into a play-off for the Division championship. RA1 are in Group C.
Odd scores can crop up, usually caused by application of penalty points. e.g. a defaulted game apart from the score as a win for the opponent, also attracts a half-point penalty.
The other teams in Division 5 are: Bishop Knights; Chessable White Rose 3; Braunstone 1; Warley and Quinborne; St Benildus C; Enfield 1
RA1 finish 2nd in Division 5, Group C, with 11/14, to achieve promotion without needing to go through the extra play-off matches to decide the Division Championship, a trial reserved for Group winners. Chessable White Rose 3 won Group C with a 100% score.
