With only four games played of the 15/16 season, Lawford C are looking unstoppable in their quest for promotion. They have now gained the maximum number of points attainable from four games (40 points). John Colvin has been the spearhead for Lawford, winning 11 singles and contributing in a few doubles matches too. They thrashed Pegasus E 10-0. Lawford are now a formidable 23 points ahead of the 2nd and 3rd placed teams, Pegasus E & Pegasus F, in what looks to be a race for the coveted second promotion spot. Pegasus F also didn’t have the best of weeks, losing 7-3 to Gilberd A. Adam Taylor achieved a maximum for the Gilberd.
Gilberd B move to the top spot in Division Four after beating Pegasus H 6-4. Olly Fifield won all of his games with another fine performance, which has only seen him lose one out of the nine matches he has played so far this season. Tollgate F are in 2nd place, despite losing 6-4 to Gt Horkesley E. Tollesbury C are just behind after winning their third consecutive match of the season, 6-4 against Tollgate E, having played a game less than the top two teams. CRGS A had a resounding 9-1 victory over Gt Horkesley F. Rowhedge K, playing with just two players, won all of their games (including the doubles) to beat Lawford E 7-3.
In the Premier Division, Tollgate A moved back to the top of the table after comfortably beating St James B 8-2. A special mention must go out to the reigning cadet champion, Sam Hume, who won the only points of the evening for St James. Funnily enough, Tollgate B matched this score-line by beating the other St James team (St James A) 8-2. Rowhedge A beat Walton A 7-3.
Lawford A continue to be the dominant team in Division One. They had an easy 9-1 win over Rowhedge F, with Edward Rudge winning the only point for Rowhedge. Only 3 points separate six of the teams in the division. Tollgate C beat St James C 8-2, whilst Gt Horkesley B beat Pegasus B 7-3.
In Division Two, Tollgate D beat Tollesbury B 8-2, moving them ahead of Gt Horkesley C who shared the top spot with them last week. Gt Horkesley D did Rowhedge G no favours by beating them 7-3. Rowhedge G currently sit bottom of the table, but it is still too early in the season to predict whether jumping up two divisions was too much of an ask.
