Mid Lancs Week J

Report From Paul Eastham

This is the turnaround week of the season & in Division 1, David Lloyd beat Carlton A 16-2 to climb up into 2nd place on the tables. Clarky was statistically the best player on the night & lie just a single point behind the leaders with a match in hand.

Hawks B lost 4-14 at home to their own A team to be in very deep relegation waters. Andy Owen was the MOTM for his 6.

MGS C also lost to their own B team 5-13, as Tom Lowe & Adrian Greenwood won all their 6 games to be the best players on the evening and help the team go onto the same points on the table as their very own A team, 17.

St. Andrews A fought hard to try and topple Cross Feathers off the top of the table and at 4 all after the levels the match was looking very tight. Alesander Grigorov & Fay Andrews from Cross Feathers then won a pair in the opening mixed which was followed by a split set in the 6th before Joe Steele & Liz Holt struck back in 7th with a pair to level the match once again (7 all) In the 8th Alesander & Fay won another pair, 11-15 & 13-15 to take the score to 7-9 before Ste Andrews & Hayley Harrison won the required game in the final set to pick up the 3 points & stay at the top of the table. So, in the 8-10 win for the visitors, it was Fay who took home the LOTM award home for taking all of her 6 crucial games to help win the match.

Mixed Tournament 2016/17

Message From Mark Pallett

Unfortunately due to the unavailability of Clayton Sports centre on most Sunday’s due to a club block booking, this venue has become unavailable for our league handicap tournaments.

I have been & still am actively trying to source another venue / courts for this tournament, but the likelihood now is that the Handicap Mixed Tournament, will be rescheduled for the New year (as well as the level doubles) & at a venue that still is TBC, as soon as I have more information I will endeavour to communicate it around the league ASAP.

Thanks for your understanding of this situation & accept my apologies for any inconvenience caused  with this matter.


Mid Lancs Week I

Report From Paul Eastham

This week in Division 1, MGS A came across their match when they hosted the reining Champs, David Lloyd. MGS were 2-6 down after the levels, but it could have been closer only for the visitors winning 2 setting games, but in the mixed it was a different story! David Lloyd marched on in the mixed only losing that very last game to make the final score, 3-15. Having said that, it was David Lloyd’s heaviest game loss of the season so far as Mark Tuttle & Darren Whitley won all their 6 games

In a rearranged match, Carlton A played against Hawks A and just managed to scrape the bonus point in the very last game of the match in a 6-12 defeat. Chris Foote, Michelle Skinner & Chris Chu all won 5 games each to help win the 3 points.

The very next night, Hawks A managed to win another match when they hosted MGS C. They ended up thrashing the bottom team 18-0 to take the max 4 points & 7 in total over the 2 nights to help thrust themselves way up the table.

MGS B crashed 2-16 at home to Cross Feathers who maintain a 2 point lead at the top of the division. Tom Lowe & Lynn Hosegood came close to winning more games in setting, but in the end it was 4 points in the bag for the visitors with Ste Andrews, Hayley Harrison & Rach Graham all winning their 6 games to help keep hopes up of bringing silverware home.

St. Andrews A beat Hawks B, 16-2 to be in joint 2nd place & leave the visitors in very murky relegation waters; 10 points clear of safety. Steve Taylor, Nicki McGrath & Lizzie Holt all won their 6 & next week they host Cross Feathers… Interesting!!

Mid Lancs Week H

Report From Paul Eastham

In Division 1, Hawks A got a fab 10-8 home win this week when they hosted MGS A. After the levels they were 5-3 ahead followed by 2 split sets and then won a pair in the 7th to go into a 9-5 lead. Jarred Mathew & Becky Ashton won both games in the 8th for MGS 8-15 & 16-17 to bring the match score back to 9-7; but Andy Owen & Emily Miller sealed the win in the final set & take the 3 pts to put a little daylight between them & the dreaded red line! Chris Chu won 5 games to be best.

After a very tight match MGS B lost 8-10 at home to Carlton A. MGS went into the mixed games at 3-5 down and the first 3 sets were split before MGS took a pair in the 8th to level the match to go into an 8 all classic. Dave Wiseman & Cath Bagley won the final pair of games 11-15 & 12-15 to seal the 8-10 win for Carlton to lift the away from the dreaded drop zone. Cath was also the best player on the night, winning 5 of her 6 games to help take the 3 points for the team.

David Lloyd thrashed Hawks B 18-0 to go into joint 2nd place on the tables; still only losing to games in their 5 matches! Statistically, I couldn’t split Ashlea Chester & Ruth Flatman for being the best players; they both conceded 20 pts out of their 6 games. Next week, I wonder if MGS A can show any resistance to David Lloyd when they visit Wellfield?

Cross Feathers went back to the top of the table this week with a 16-2 home win over MGS C as Ste Andrews & Hayley Harrison won all of their 6 games to assist in the max point win in the No 2 slot.
