West Warwicks 6 Shottery B 4
Veterans 3 Shottery C 7
Henley A beat Shottery C by 5 points
FISSC beat Royal Mail by 24 points
For the second time this season Shottery B were only able to field two players for their visit to West Warwicks but, nevertheless, were within a whisker of coming away with a result.
Tim Fell and Dave Milton each earned braces with the latter, in the closest encounter of the fixture, overturning an early disadvantage to defeat Andy Rowland over the distance. The two Shottery players also combined to achieve success in the doubles, although neither were able to overcome Alison Stewart.
Shottery’s third string also enjoyed an away victory when they were entertained by Veterans. Rob Poole notched a treble with Ken Southwell adding a brace, but he was prevented from making it a perfect evening by John Hunt who won their encounter in the decider. Poole and David Lincoln-Lewis maintained their good doubles form, while the latter also narrowly defeated Mark Kingham despite scoring two points fewer than his opponent over the course of their five games.
Shottery C were denied a place in the semi finals of the knockout cup by Henley A for whom Don McAdam proved the star of the show by winning all six of his games. McAdam, Peter Quince and Geoff Shephard were 20 points ahead after open play which was reduced to just five after the handicap adjustment.
FISSC are also in the final stages following victory over Royal Mail. Peter Florence, Malcolm Smith and Peter Bruce-Moore finished 24 points behind the Postmen but the handicap saw them through.
Henley A and FISSC will be joined in the semi-finals by Shottery B, who had a bye, and the winners of the clash between Veterans and Henley B which is due to be played in early December.
