This week in Division 1, the ‘old school’ met again in a crucial clash at Wellfield. The match, as expected, was ever so tight and it started with 3 split levels sets before Andy’s took a pair in the Ladies 4th set to go 3-5 ahead. A split opening mixed set was followed by Rick Wallbank & Jen Rigby winning a pair in the 6th set to even the score at 6 all. Steve Taylor & Liz Holt immediately stuck back winning a pair in the 7th to take the score to 6-8. The final 2 sets were split including a score of 16-17 to Steve & Liz in the final set to give St. Andrews the victory & 3 points in the bag in this vital title chasing match. The result takes Andy’s into 2nd place, keeps MGS in 4th as the best player on the night was Liz, she won 5 games to help Andy’s victory.
Hawks A had a right old battle against Carlton A this week & at 4 all after the levels it was game on! The opening mixed set was split before Chris Foote & Michelle Skinner won both games in set 6 to go 7-5 in front. Sets 7 & 8 were split to take the score to 9-7 to leave a thrilling finale in which Dave Wiseman & Jane Parkinson won both games for Carlton 15-17 & 10-15 to earn a draw for the visitors. Dave also won 5 games to be the best player & make the difference to help grab the draw.
MGS B got beat 6-12 at home by leaders of the division, Cross Feathers, however, the home team won the vital bonus point in the 8th set to help their relegation worries. Mike Johnson won all of his 6 to be the MOTM & keep the team in the top slot.
Crusaders A clashed with Clitheroe A in a bottom of the table scrabble for pts. Crusaders won all the Men’s & a single Ladies game to go 5-3 ahead going into the mixed & Clayton struck hard in the opening sets winning 5 games in a row to win the match. The 1st ever win in division 1 must have gone to their head, as they then lost the remaining 5 games of the match to make a final score of 10-8. Best on the night was Azam Sharif, he won 5 games to help assist in the 1st ever historic win!

Report From Paul Eastham
This week in Division 1, Clitheroe A had a tough match against Hawks A in a scrabble for some points. At 3-5 down after the levels, Hawks surged ahead in the mixed to snuff out any hopes of the host’s chances of any points at all. Final score ended up at 5-13 as Hawks took the max points back home with them; Chris Hoyle & Chris Chu both won all of their 6 games.
St. Andrews A thrashed MGS B 17-1, only Rob Metcalfe & Alex Mackie winning the 1 game to setting stopped the complete whitewash. Karolyn Hustler was statistically the best player on the night as Andy’s move up into 3rd place with the 4 points.
David Lloyd’s match was off due to Clayton Crusaders A conceding & have a 1 pt deduction with a £10 fine imposed on them.
