DRL records and statistics

On there pages I have compiled some assorted records and statistics using the league tables and the results of the competitions which make up the tables. This page mostly has either top ten or ten most recent of a record, but clicking to the link at the bottom of each table should take you to the top 100 (or in some cases top 25) for each record. Links within the tables take you to the appropriate page of the archive for more details. If there are any ideas or requests for further statistics, please email them to me at the usual address and I'll try to ask the database the right question to get the sensible answer...
Throughout these pages the abbreviations NAIT Deaneries has been used for the Newton Abbot, Ipplepen and Torbay Deaneries, P&I Deaneries for the Plymouth and Ivybridge Deaneries, and SRCY for The Society of Royal Cumberland Youths.

The records here are the league records, mainly using single season results. Many of the records are split into two categories: Teams which have rung in five or more competitions in a season and those for all teams which have participated in at lest one competition in a given season (the all-comers records). All time records are since 1958, and records set in 2018 are marked with bold text.

These records are only concerned with the ringers who rang for the team that won the compeititons in question. Also, since I don't have anything like a complete list of the ringers for every competition so it's not as big an archive as the results archive (as yet), sorry! If you can help, please get in contact.
