Report from Paul Eastham:
This week in Division 1, MGS A battled at home with Cross Feathers in their 1st match of the season & after the visitors close shave at home to Andy’s a few nights ago, the last thing they wanted was another battle to the death! In the end, Cross Feathers romped away with all 4 points as the score ran out at 3-15; Rach Graham was again statistically best on the night.
David Lloyd brushed aside Hawks A with a 17-1 home win; Emily Miller & Michelle Skinner saving the total whitewash by taking the only game won as Darren Whitley was statistically the best player on the evening again.
MGS C still have to wait for their first division 1 point of the season as they were beat 4-14 at home by Carlton A and by contrast, the visitors picked up their first pts. Cath Bagley, Andrew Davis, Andrea Neville & Nikki Wilford all picked up 5 each
St. Andrews bounced from last weeks defeat to beat MGS B 13-5 and earn themselves a max 4 points. Ashley Gibson was the MOTM in this tie in his first season playing for Andy’s having been the sworn enemy for years playing for Grimmy!

Report From Paul Eastham:
Here we go again… the 2016/17 season is upon us & a big thank you for the prompt cards yet again via whatsapp & email.
As always, all the fixtures, results and tables can then be seen ‘live’ and online at http://w.fixtureslive.com/
The 1st fixture in division 1 of the new season was Carlton A who took on David Lloyd at home and needless to say the visitors got off to their usual start by thrashing them 0-18 with only 3 games going into double figures. Joanna Holt was statistically the best player on the evening to help get the Champs off to a perfect start.
Hawks A beat their own B team 16-2 as Cathy Atfield was statistically the best player on the night.
MGS B beat their newly promoted C team 14-4 as Tom Lowe & Jared Matthew won all of their 6 games.
Last year’s runner up, Cross Feathers took on St. Andrews A and didn’t quite have the easy ride that they had last year. 2 pairs & 2 split sets in the levels meant that going into the levels all square. Rach Graham & Mike Johnson won the opening mixed set 15-13 & 17-15 to go up 6-4, this was then followed by a split set in the 6th and Andy’s won a pair in the 7th to even the score again at 7 all. The 8th was split again before Rach & Mike stepped on court to win the final pair of games, both to 7 to win the very tight match 10-8…phew! Rach was the LOTM on the evening for taking all her 6 & making the win possible.
