Pyne hold­ing off Mar­cus Con­nor to win 3-1.

But a 3-0 de­feat for Wy­combe ju­nior Fred­die Evans to Phil Yearby was the sig­nal for the for­mi­da­ble Ayles­bury top or­der to roll into ac­tion, Dar­ren Withey hold­ing off a gritty rally by Ge­orge Good­child to com­plete a 3-0 score.

Fur­ther wins for Alex Pre­ston (3-0 over Stu­art Bur­nett) and Will John (3-1 over Mike Hal­lett) saw Ayles­bury to a 17-4 win and kept them top, three points ahead of Ger­rards Cross, both hav­ing won their first four.

Else­where, Uxbridge con­demned Bea­cons­field Lions to their fourth de­feat, win­ning 17-6, and Holmer Green beat Chesham Bois 1b 16-6.

Di­vi­sion Two cham­pi­ons Wy­combe RSC 2nds, trav­elled to play de­moted Ayles­bury and al­though Ayles­bury’s Dave Her­ron (3-0) and Ian McGowan (3-1) recorded im­pres­sive vic­to­ries, peren­nial Wy­combe stars Dun­can Swal­low, Matt Al­lan­son (both 3-1) and Mark Brown (3-0) clinched a 14-8 vic­tory for Wy­combe.

They join the lead­ing pack be­hind lead­ers Chesham Bois Mav­er­icks, who made it five out of five with a 17-6 win over Bea­cons­field Tigers, and Bea­cons­field Bulls, who beat Holmer Green 15-10.

Bisham con­tinue to find the go­ing tough in their first Di­vi­sion Three sea­son, go­ing down 18-4 at home to WSRC 4ths and 14-7 to Bea­cons­field Bears.

Wins for Buck­ing­ham and Bea­cons­field Tro­jans and a 19-0 walkover for Ayles­bury 2nds mean only six points sep­a­rate the top six.

In a match of 3-1 scores, WSRC 4ths beat Chesham Bois Up­starts 15-9, with wins for Wy­combe’s Mark Coxon, Mat­tie Hewlett, and Tim Bark-Jones, and Chesham’s Tom Wal­ter and Si­mon Ack­ers.

Wy­combe Ladies 2nds also saw off Bea­cons­field 15-5, with 3-0 wins for Fleur Drumer and Brenda Ede.

He­len Cardy was edged out 3-2 by Ka­neetha Lian, but pro­moted ju­nior Gina Mullis slogged out a 3-2 de­but win over Ni­cole Man­ley.

The Sir Steve Red­grave Bur­sary awards are pre­sented by
