Only 3 matches played this week in Division 1 week 3, but some standout performances nonetheless. Team of the week were Walton B who scored 8 points against Rowhedge D, double what they had averaged in their previous 3 games. Gavin Price starred with a maximum for Walton, all hard fought, but perhaps the performance of the night came from the home team’s Neil Huatan, with a 3-0 win over previously unbeaten Kevin James. Walton B move up to 5th.
Another fine performance came from the evergreen Roger Clarke in the Rowhedge D / Tollesbury A encounter. Unbeaten in Division 3, he returned to D1 and scored a fine 3-0 over Pete Simmonds to add to his previous first division scalp of Paul Meikle. The match ended all square, with Paddy Gilbert taking another 3 for Tollesbury. In the week’s other fixture, it was a good night for John Barton, who won all of his matches without dropping a game for St James B in a 6-4 victory away to Tollgate C.
