Mid Lancs Weeks G

Report From Paul Eastham

In Division 1 this week, MGS A went to the top of the table with a 14-4 win over bottom team, Clayton Crusaders A.

Hawks A took all 4 points in a 13-5 victory over MGS B to take them to a snug mid table position.

David Lloyd didn’t have any drama this week and it was back to usual business as they beat Clitheroe A 16-2. Clarky was statistically the best player on the night… probably because everyone else is out injured!! J

Cross Feathers took all 4 points in a fine 17-1 win over opponents Carlton A to take them into joint 2nd place on the tables with St. Andrews. Ste Andrews was statistically the best player on the night in the No 2 slot.

For me, being absolutely neutral… as you all know!! The top of the table has never looked so exciting! The top 4 teams, all past winners of some kind are being separated by just 5 pts with Andy’s & David Lloyd having a game in hand over the others and ‘they’ have still got to play each other! Something or someone is gonna crack…. Or is it.. Will it be like this to the end? J

Mid Lancs Report – Week A

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

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.
