In my final report of the season, Division 1 kicked off with MGS A whitewashing bottom team Clayton A 18-0, with Becky Ashton being statistically the best player on the night to help the team move into 2nd place due to Andy’s A not playing.
Hawks A beat MGS B 11-7 as Jenny Mx won 5 games to be the best player on the evening.
David Lloyd as expected beat Clitheroe A 17-1, only Alison Leaver & Jess Portas stopping the complete whitewash.
Cross Feathers kept firmly in charge at the top with a 16-2 victory over Carlton A; Hayley Harrison was statistically the best.
The result makes Cross Feathers favourites to lift the shield for the very first time and who knows on the runners up???? Crusaders A are relegated and Clitheroe A are likely to join them in the drop into division 2.

Resumption of fixtures started in Division 1 this week when Carlton A hosted joint runners up, St Andrews A. The visitors didn’t mess about, they got off to a 2-6 flying start being 2-6 up after the levels and then only lost 2 more games in the match for a 4-14 win to keep in sole 2nd place on the tables. Ash Gibson & Karolyn Hustler won all their 6 games on the night.
Hawks A got thrashed 1-17 by leaders of the division Cross Feathers to keep a 6 point lead at the top; only Andy Owen & Chris Chu winning the 1 game to stop the total whitewash. Rach Graham was statistically the best player on the night.
Clayton Crusaders A suffered another loss this week at the hands of MGS B who virtually send them tumbling back into division 2 next season with a 3-15 win. Adrian Greenwood, Alex Mackie & Jenny Stothard won all their 6 in the 4 pt win.
In a crunch match at David Lloyds pad, the struggling Champs took on current joint place team, MGS A who were 3 points ahead of them prior to the match kicking off. At the end of the levels the score was tied at 4 & then Jared Matthew & Rebecca Ashton won the opening mixed set to take MGS into a 4-6 lead. Alan Clarkson & Joanna Holt won both games to 12 & 14 to even the score again. The 7th was split before Jared & Rebecca won a pair over Alan & Joanna to go 7-9 ahead going into the nail-biting final set which was split to give MGS a 8-10 victory & a clean sweep of wins over the Champs this year! In the 3 point win that drops MGS down to 3rd place, Rebecca was the LOTM on the night for winning all of her 6 games.

Report From Paul Eastham
This week in Division 1, MGS A managed to overcome Hawks A with an 11-7 home victory over them. The match was won in the 6th set as MGS blew Hawks away in the early sets, only a brave comeback in the last 3 sets saved the visitors blushes when they won 5 of the 6 games on offer to steal the bonus point. MGS move into joint 2nd place with the 3 points won.
In a crunch title chasing match, last year’s runners up, Cross Feathers took on Champions, David Lloyd at home and after the levels, the hosts were 5-3 up. Cross Feathers then built on this lead in the mixed when they won the next 4 games to at least earn a draw at 9-3. Scott Weber & Emily Hollis won a pair in the 6th set to take the score to 9-5, but Mike Johnston & Rach Graham won both games to 7 to win the match for Cross Feathers before Scott & Emily won the final pair of games to make the final match score 11-7. The win & 3 points keep Cross Feathers in pole position at the top with a lead of 6 points over joint 2nd place teams, MGS A & St. Andrews A… but they both have a match in hand, so it’s still gonna be tight!

Report from Paul Eastham
This week in Division 1, Clitheroe felt the wrath of the leaders, Cross Feathers; they fell 2-16 at home as the sand of time starts draining away on their hopes of stopping up. Matt Tolman was the best player winning 5 of his 6 ‘played’ games.
MGS B got beat by their own A team 3-15 to remain in a precarious position above the red line, however the 4 point max win for the A team catapulted them into 3rd place on the tables. Jared Matthew & Rebecca Ashton won all their 6 to be the best.
Second place team, St. Andrews A had a cracking 12-6 win over an injury struggling David Lloyd. The much welcomed 3 points keeps Andy’s hopes alive of once again lifting the division 1 shield as they are 3 points adrift from Cross Feathers & they play David Lloyd next week. Liz Holt & Lizzie Balmforth won 5 games to be the best players on the evening. With around 6 games to go in this division & all the top teams due to play each other, it really is an open race & a fight to lift that giant shield!!!
