The Half-Time Table, halfway

It’s time to revisit the Half-Time League Table, now that we’re about halfway through the season. Just like last time, I’ve again compiled all the half-time scores in Ryman Premier League games and created a league table based on the scoreline at that point. So, without further ado, feast your eyes on the Halfway Half-Time League Table below. There are some things which leap out straight away:

  • Kingstonian stay top of the league! However, that doesn’t necessarily mean we’re a “first half team”…
  • And at the other end of the table, Wingate & Finchley remain bottom. Will both K’s and Wingate end the season at either end of the table?
  • Top of the ‘real’ table Whitehawk only manage a play-off place, having conceded a pretty generous 15 first half goals – although they are the top scorers with 21 strikes before the half-time whistle.
  • Just like after ten games, Cray are much higher in this half-time table than in the real one, largely because they fly out of the blocks away from home. Take note if you’re hosting Cray any time soon, Ryman League managers…
  • The hardest team to get off to a flyer against? Bognor, who’ve been trailing just twice at the break so far this season, having conceded a miserly 7 goals in 20 first periods. Impressive.
  • Out of the remaining promotion contenders, it’s worth mentioning just how bad Wealdstone have been away from home in the first half, with only two goals scored in 8 games. The Stones will need to start faster on the road if they want promotion this season.
  • Other teams struggling away from home comforts are Hendon, Hastings and Thurrock, none of whom have managed to lead an away game at half time so far. In Hendon’s case, they haven’t even managed to score a goal. Thurrock have led after the first 45 in a remarkable 7 of their 9 home games, but in not a single one of their 8 away games.
  • But the most Jekyll and Hyde record of all belongs to Concord: there have been 26 goals scored in their home first halves, but a mere 8 in their away games. Do they go all-out attack at home and park the bus away? And if so, why? Bizarre.
