Shield Semi Final Results
Horsham Spinners B and Crawley Sports E are through to the Handicap Shield Final after two very close semis.
Owen Brown, Ollie Michell and Freddy Goodall scraped home, winning by a slim 7 points against Foresters J. Fred Batten playing in his final league season had a great game with Freddy only losing out 20-21 in the first, Colin Hollamby took one from Ollie 21-19 and Dolly Gilbert excelled against Freddy in a close 17-21, 20-21 defeat.
A great match, but the 164 point start to Foresters still left them 7 short. With their C team having won Division 2 Owen, Ollie and Freddy have set up the Spinners Club for a League and Cup Double.

In the other match Costas Kyriacou, Rob Poplutz and David Annand from Crawley Community D took on Crawley Sports E.
Hilary Robson in hindsight proved the Match Winner, she took the first game against David 21-17, Mike Brooks performed well with a 70 point total and Norman Mulley racked up 16 points each time in his first games versus Costas and Rob.
A huge 204 points for Community to overhaul, so it was nearly but not quite due to Hilary, as they finished 20 short.
