League update 19th August

Saint Chads finished as runners up in the first division of the Northumbria Summer League when they defeated Cramlington Casuals 7- 3 with Chris Blake winning all of his singles matches and combining with Jimmy Scope to take the doubles.

As expected Dave Robson was unbeaten for the champions, Mount, as they defeated their B team 6 -4 while the young Brandon Air side finished on a high note with victory , also 6 - 4, over Old England.

Prudhoe and District United Service Club have won the second division after beating Tyneside TTC 7 - 3 at Prudhoe. Mark O'Connor picked up a hat trick with Peter Stempczyk and Maurice Cheek getting two each. Mark Kimberley got a couple for the losers.

Mount C team took another step towards winning the third division when Charlie Mouzon, Alan Livingstone and Bill Edwards were far too strong for Ouston A and ran out 10 - 0 winners.

Sacriston Bombers who mathematically are still in the hunt lost ground when Redby, thanks to a hat trick by Istvan Franko, restricted them to a 6 - 4 win, Daniel Hutchinson, Kevin Richardson and Jonathan Mawson all getting two.

East Boldon are already the winners of Division Four but second spot and promotion is still being fought out by two Cramlington teams. The Corinthians side of Sam Nair, Adrian Barnes and Matthew Mastaglio finished with a 7 - 3 success over Ouston B but the Spartans team of Alan Hedley, Joe Hastings and young Oliver Ho could well overtake them as they are only seven points behind and still have to play Ouston as well as East Boldon.

Either Tyneside B or Backspin C could join Sacriston Comets in promotion from Division Five, both having  home matches to play against Prudhoe B.

At the top of division six N.E.S.L.C finished  with a 9 - 1 win over Sacriston Scorpions but Matfen Cohorts only need three points from their final match against Brandon Fire to win the division.
