Division Four title looks set to go right down to the wire

Who would’ve thought there are only four weeks to go till the end of the season? Tollesbury C currently sit top of Division Four after beating Pegasus G 7-3. Roy Cole was Pegasus’ standout player, though, as he beat all of Tollesbury’s players. This result moves Tollesbury two points above Rowhedge H who have a game in hand. Tollgate H and Gt Horkesley E drew 5-5. Ken Huang won all of his games for Tollgate.


In the Premier Division, many people will be putting money on Tollgate A defending their title. They beat their sister team, Tollgate B, 8-2. Trevor Lloyd and Colin Stallwood remained unbeaten at the end of the night. For Rowhedge to fight for the top, they’d need to be winning by bigger margins than Tollgate. However, they could only match Tollgate’s result and beat Lawford A 8-2. Richard Hutchinson and Paul Broxton won all of their games for Rowhedge. These results leave Tollgate ten points clear of Rowhedge with Tollgate having an additional game to play compared to their rivals.


Lawford B recorded their first win of the season in Division One by beating fellow strugglers, Tollesbury A, 6-4. Mark Seymour won all of his games for Lawford, however this result still leaves both teams with a mountain to climb if they wish to avoid relegation. In their second game of the week, Lawford lost 7-3 to Rowhedge C. Neil Huatan and Ronnie Kullick achieved maximums for Rowhedge. St James C beat Walton B 6-4, with Andy Vincent taking his win record to 90% for St James.


In Division Two, Rowhedge E lead the way after beating Tollesbury B 7-3. Ed Rudge proved too strong for all of Tollesbury’s players. Gt Horkesley B recorded a very impressive 8-2 victory over a strong Tollgate E side. It’s the first time Phil Wolski (Gt Horkesley) has ever achieved a maximum twice in the same season in the division. Rowhedge G beat Dedham A, who could only turn up with two players, 9-1. Jared Chelski continued his unbeaten record in the division, with Ken James and Jamie Morgan also playing their part by winning all of their games. Rowhedge F beat Pegasus B 7-3. Kamil Lentas achieved a maximum for Rowhedge.


It was first against second in Division Three this week. It was no surprise then than current leaders, Tollgate F, overcame Tollgate G 7-3. Arran Hutchinson won all of his games for Tollgate F and his statistics show he has been improving since the beginning of the season. In the game between Pegasus D and Gt Horkesley C, Pegasus achieved the dubious honour of losing all ten coin tosses, where the chances of this happening is 1 in 1024. This means that the chances of this happening is about once every two and a half years (414 matches in a season).


A special mention goes out to Dennis Dellow (Pegasus D) and Phil Wolski (Gt Horkesley B) who both sent in reports from their individual matches. If you want something to appear in the report, please send the information to my email address.
