Premier British League Round 12 - Report

Ormesby ensured they ended the penultimate day of Premier British League on top after dispatching of Bournemouth 8-0, confirming Bournemouth's relegation in the process.

Most crucially, Ormesby's quartet dropped just one game throughout, with Stephen Beerling forcing Darius Knight to four ends, boosting Ormesby's game ratio. 

The result heightens the pressure on Sycamore, who could only manage a 6-2 win over Drumchapel. In reality, a 6-2 win over Drumchapel is a solid result, but with competition so tight at the top two dropped sets means that Sycamore must now beat Ormesby tomorrow or their title challenge shall effectively fall flat.

Fusion ended the day unbeaten as they picked up a superb 7-1 victory over London Academy. Fusion's victory confirmed their status as a Premier Division team next season, condemning Kingfisher to relegation in the process. The victory leapfrogged Fusion above London, important given the increased prize money for each position gained in the league ladder.

It was a dominant display from Fusion, impressively winning five of the ends three games straight. Michael O'Driscoll put Fusion in the lead with victory over Gabriel Achampong before Adam Nutland responded for London with an impressive victory over Kazeem Adeleke. But from their Fusion were dominant, with Luke Savill particularly impressive as Fusion gained five unanswered sets.

Finally, Kingfisher's credible 4-4 draw with Barrow was not enough to avoid relegation as they attempted to go out fighting. A topsy turvy game saw Kingfisher valiantly come from behind a staggering four times, showing their team unity in fighting to the death. Sean Doherty's double for Barrow, winning in five against both Liam McTiernan and Tom Maynard, was nullified by a win apiece for Kingfisher's quartet, with Maynard's five set victory over Danny Lawrence a particular highlight.
