Premier Two Red 2019

There are twenty-four contestants for the 2019 Bristol Premier League Division Two season, seventeen of whom remain in the division from last season, while four have been relegated from Premier One, and three have gained automatic promotion from Premier Three.
Those 24 players have been arranged into two parallel divisions of twelve, Premier Two Blue and Premier Two Red, ordered as per their finishing positions last year.
In each division players play each other twice in 11-point matches giving a total of twenty-two matches each, in a season spanning the eleven months from January to November.
Players arrange their own fixtures, at mutually acceptable venues and times, with Bristol Backgammon's Monday and Thursday sessions being prime opportunities.
