The two teams in Division 1 still without a win met each other in the final round of matches in the first half of the season. As expected a close contest ensued, but it was Mayfield who came out on top by six games to four at Batheaston A. Nigel Woolley claimed a treble for the visitors, with Steve Tanner and Reg Morris adding a win apiece. Gary Sartain and Pete Smith replied with braces for the home side.
Yatton Keynell B proved much too good for their club-mates from the C team – winning 10-0. Richard and Mark Terrell, and Jeff Flynn, were the undefeated trio.
Bear Flat A further enhanced their Division 2 promotion prospects with another convincing win – 9-1 at home to Batheaston B, whose only point was earned by Phil Gentle. Andrew Steady and Justin Johnstone both registered maximums for the victors, with Mikhail Asanovic adding a double.
Man of the match John Maloney carded a hat-trick for Chippenham D, but this was not enough to prevent a 7-3 defeat at home to Key Centre B. Mark Tanner, Sue Ruse, and Dave Carter all won pairs for the visitors.
In the Chippenham derby in the Premier Division, the B team inflicted the first defeat of the season on their table topping A team colleagues, despite Gary Baldwin’s treble. Scott Cooper, Andy Cox, and Chris Satchell registered braces for the B team.
Chippenham B also won 8-2 at home to a two-man Oldfield B in an outstanding result from the previous week. Satchell and Cooper were both unbeaten on this occasion. Mike Noel and Mervyn George both beat Phil Bevan to claim the visitors’ points.
