Week 20 - League Summary

On Richard Goodhand’s last game for Gt Horkesley A in the Premier Division, he helped Horkesley beat second place Tollgate A 6-4. However, the spotlight was on Richard Hutchinson after coming away from the night unbeaten. This result leaves Gt Horkesley A 24 points clear over Tollgate A. Tollgate have 3 games to play, so need at least 8-2 in each of their last games to stand any chance of causing the most unlikeliest of shocks. This result helped Rowhedge C move back into second place after drawing 5-5 with Rowhedge A. Charlie Bates (Rowhedge C) picked up the man-of-the-match award, winning all three of his games. Pegasus A picked up a valuable 5 points in their battle to stay up after drawing 5-5 with Tollgate B, Stephen Kerns winning all three of his games.

Rowhedge E beat their ‘F’ team 7-3 in the only match recorded so far for Division One. Jared Chelski played up three divisions for Rowhedge F and although losing all of his games, he has gained some valuable experience for the future.

In Division Two, Lawford A stretched their lead at the top by beating bottom-of-the-table Gt Horkesley F 9-1. Robert Wood and Peter Wright were on hand to win all three of their games. Ian Carter beat Graham Mortimer to pick up the only point for Gt Horkesley. There was a middle-of-the-table clash between Tollgate D and Pegasus C, which Pegasus came out on top. Dave Whiting with a maximum for Pegasus. Pegasus B lost 3-7 to Gt Horkesley E, which puts Horkesley on 77 points after 17 matches played. Mathematically, Gt Horkesley E could still be relegated, but they should get the necessary points against bottom club Gt Horkesley F (3 to be certain). This means the remaining couple of weeks are going to prove extremely exciting at the bottom of Division Two with a few teams still in contention to go down.

Tollesbury B move to the top of Division Three after brushing aside Gilberd B 10-0. This result moves Tollesbury 3 points clear ahead of St James D, who both have two games left to play. Lawford C inflicted heavy pain on Pegasus F’s chances of staying up. Lawford won 9-1, with Vic Little winning the only point for Pegasus.
