Comments: 

Wem USC enjoyed a remarkable 2018 season, even more incredible given they finished rock bottom in 2017. They had no worries of that this season, despite losing their three first games as they then got some impressive home wins, 4 of them being double figures, to overcome their slow start. Their away form, which was terrible last season, had improved with good 5s at St Georges and Wem USC in the 1st half. They lost at home to Newport, but then followed this up with a win against Castlefields. They then suffered two home losses against St Georges and Bowring which threatened to spoil their season. However they then got a draw at Burway with 7 winners, which was followed up by a record 3 away wins for the club, with their only loss in 7 being at home to Chester Road by a single shot. This pushed them into the top half and despite losing their last two games they had done enough for their highest position since 2014. They also capped it off by reaching the final of the Pool A, where they led after four against Castlefields before losing out. They lost in the 1st round of the Alan Mayhew Trophy.
