Two each for Adam Daley and Kate Cheer over Paul Newton and Graham Green left the Foresters D v Crawley Community B match tied up at 4-4 with one to play. With Shaun Parsley himself already with two wins it seemed good for Community but Cool Hand Luke Gallagher came up trumps to grab the win, coming back from two down to defeat Shaun 11-9 in the 5th.

First v Third, it looked like it could be close on paper, but the Champions Elect Josh Bennett, George Hazell and Martin Gunn dished up another 9-0. Paul Carter and Phil Richardson both had chances, Barrie Gilbert with his cases already packed was in Holiday Mode.

Wes Bush Harris made his seasons debut having spent 6 months in the Treatment Room. He was back with a Bang though, alongside Craig Bryant and Mark Collins they polished off the clubs C side in double quick time. No joy for Musa, Johnny or Phil Nichols.

Sally Henke was quickly onto social media after her match, a first win over Dave Steel, a good win in 5 over James Wheatley gave her a maximum, putting Sports A on the way to a superb victory. She was backed up well with braces from Graham Beaney and Simon Knivett. Alice thought she had gone back through The Looking Glass and was playing with Tweedledum and Tweedledee !!

Richard Hazell became the latest family member to rack up a Premier Hat Trick. Chris Vincent, Andrew Sharland and Steve Hoad succumbed to Richards improving form. Three from Steve Barby, One for The Catt.

Plenty of Spirit on show from Copthorne, including a Brace for Stuart Brooks, and One for Chris Pullinger. The Great Wall, Graham Carter undefeated, Two for Colin Jones a single for Michael Bridger. Mike Hughes who was filling in for the Coppers star man Gary Bristowe always proves awkward, but just fell short.

Marc Burman took the honours for Spinners as they just edged Foresters B. Tony Steel with another good win over Rory took Two, Mike Robinson and Tim Surrey One each, all too strong for Alan Stone. With other results falling their way the Bees now move up into Third place, Spinners Fifth.
