League update 4th July

The closest game in Division 1 this week saw StChads travelling to Cramlington to face a Stingers lineup of Steven Penman, Dale Aitkenhead and Iain Wood. Penman took Player of the Match when he clinched a 5-ender against Baines to win his hat-trick, Aitkenhead won 2 and Wood took 1 to give the Stingers a 6-4 win. Kimblesworth Rockets and Mount TTC A both had big wins as the Rockets beat Byker 9-1, only losing the doubles, and Mount beat Riding Mill 10-0 which probably wasn't a fair reflection on the closeness of the individual games.

Division 2 on the other hand offered 3 high quality, close matches. Matfen A drew 5-5 with Cramlington Casuals as Alex Holliday won 3 and Player of the Match. Webster and Pearson won 2 each for Cramlington, plus the doubles, but Philip Smith who was playing up from Division 4 wasn't able to steal any wins. Backspin drew 5-5 with Old England, despite only being able to field 2 players. David Mcallister took Player of the Match by winning his 3, Helm and Atkinson taking 2 each for the visitors. David Pringle also won his 3 for Ouston A as they beat Sacriston Aces 6-4.

In Division 3, Brandon Anacondas beat Backspin B 9-1, Matfen B beat Cramlington Cobras 8-2 and Cramlington Trojans  beat Sacriston Comets 7-3.

Division 4 entertained 4 matches this week. Ouston B lost 8-2 to Brandon Bees as Childs and Tinkler both won hat-tricks. Philip Smith won 2 in his usual division which helped Cramlington Magpies draw 5-5 away from home against Matfen C, Rayfield taking Player of the Match with 3 wins for the home team. Cramlington Lions beat Brandon Crocodiles 9-1 and every player won 2 matches for Cramlington Corinthians as they won 7-3 against Whitley Chapel.
