n Division 4, only Brandon Crusaders have won both of their matches so far. This week they travelled to Oxhill Youth Club to play against Backspin B which the Crusaders won 6-4. Jamie Westwater, Winter season Division 2 stalwart, won his three supported by Jamie Collins with 2. Ouston B’s players all won two matches each plus the doubles when they faced Cramlington Jaguars but John Murrells proved too good as he won his hat-trick and Player of the Match. Unfortunately this wasn’t enough for the visitors as Ouston won 7-3. Redby made a good comeback this week after losing last week to the league leaders Brandon Crusaders when they beat Lanchester 7-3. Malcolm Deneven and Frank Booth both won their hat-tricks but Alan Kent, Martin Johnson and Jeff Singleton were all able to beat the home side’s Angela Wilkinson which meant they took 3 points in a 7-3 defeat.
Brandon and Backspin teams also faced each other in Division 5 this week as Brandon Fire hosted Backspin C in a closely-contested 6-4 defeat for the home team. Brandon’s Bill Maclennan won his three matches and Player of the Match but teammates Abbey Maddison and Paul Henderson could only chip in one between them in support. Backspin’s Lyndsey Beacham and Bob Cook both took two wins and Martyn Parry helped out with another plus the doubles to seal the victory. Ethan Brown was the star player when East Boldon B faced Cramlington Knights as he beat Patrick Easton, Matthew Mastaglio and John Hogg. Mastaglio and Hogg both won 2 matches when they beat the home team’s Duri An and Sophie Richardson, plus the doubles which helped them to a 5-5 draw. Two Cramlington teams also battled it out this week when the Magpies faced the Lions. Alan and Tony Roskilly both won their hat-tricks and Rohan Rawat chipped in with another as the Lions won 8-2 over the Magpies line-up of Taylor Rippington, Oliver Ho and Jessica Yang. The final match of the week was a whitewash for divisional favourites Cramlington Falcons when they beat Brandon Energy 10-0.
