WEEK two in the league and in Di­vi­sion One it was the first derby game of the new sea­son in Aberkenfig as the Prince of Wales (aka the Col­liers) played host to the So­cial.

It was the So­cial who took an early lead claim­ing both of the threes legs be­fore the Prince came back to take the pairs 2-1 giv­ing the away side a slen­der one-leg ad­van­tage into the sin­gles.

The So­cial stretched their lead as wins for Bled­dyn Lyons, Chris Pack­man, Steve Bowen and a 108 fin­ish from Nigel Richards put them 7-2 in front. An­drew Her­moile pulled one back for the Prince but John Pritchard claimed the next leg to make the score 8-3 to the So­cial. Gareth James took the fi­nal leg for the Welsh men to make the fi­nal 8-4 and brag­ging rights to the So­cial.

Early lead­ers in Di­vi­sion One are the newly pro­moted Five Bells as they fol­lowed up their fine win last week with an 11-1 vic­tory at home to the GWR A. The pair­ing of Mal Hook­ings and Fred Blank get­ting the rail­way men’s only point.

After push­ing the foot­ballers all the way last week the Jol­liers came from be­hind to get their first win in their home game against the Coity A.

One a piece after the threes the Coity went in front hav­ing the bet­ter of the pairs legs to lead 3-2. Ger­wyn Har­ris made that 4-2 with vic­tory in the first of the sin­gles legs be­fore the Jol­liers got back in con­tention as Lyn­don Phillip, Dai Bar and Clive Jones put the home side in front for the first time 5-4. A 102 out from An­drew Phillips from the Coity lev­elled the score five each but Ior­rie Jones and Rus­sell Wilks took the fi­nal two legs for a 7-5 vic­tory to the Jol­liers.

The fi­nal game in Di­vi­sion One saw last sea­son’s cham­pi­ons, Peny­bont, take on the Coity B. The foot­ballers had the up­per hand after the open­ing ex­changes in the pairs and threes to lead 4-1.

Dar­ren Rees, Tony Doyle and a 14-dart leg from Ray John­son put the away side 7-1 up be­fore Mark Thatchel and Gavin Buffton pulled two back for the Coity to make the score 7-3.

Wins for Mike Doyle and Al­wyn Collins made that 9-3 to the foot­ball club.

Early lead­ers in Di­vi­sion Two are the White Horse as they made it two from two with a 9-3 away vic­tory over the Cabo.

The BUSC B move into sec­ond spot as they came from be­hind to also make it two from two with vic­tory over the GWR B.

Trail­ing 3-2 after the threes and pairs the war of­fice rat­tled off six legs on the trot in the sin­gles which paved the way for an 8-4 suc­cess.

Not to be out­done the BUSC A got prob­a­bly their best re­sult to move up to the dizzy heights of third in the league with a 9-3 home vic­tory over the Coach Driv­ers.

The fi­nal game in Di­vi­sion Two saw the Two Brew­ers take on the West House.

One each after the threes the House men edged the pairs to lead 3-2 go­ing in to the sin­gles. Dar­ren Porte and Alun Cle­ments made that 5-2 for the away side but the Brew­ers hit back as James Baker and Ron Pyne pulled two back to make the score 5-4.

Martin Tim­brell and Mike Carter put the West 7-4 up with Jon Rees claim­ing the fi­nal leg for the Brew­ers for a fi­nal score­line of 7-5 in favour of the West House.


LAST sea­son’s top of the league team the Peny­bont Foot­ball club were away to the bot­tom of the league team the Cabo Roche this week.

It started well for the Cabo with Sue Ger­rard and An­nette Young win­ning the first two sin­gles. Sadly that was it as Peny­bont went on to win the next three sin­gles.

They also claimed the last sin­gle game as the Cabo were a player short. Peny­bont took the next two dou­bles and in the last game the cap­tain of the Cabo, Julie Mor­ris, stepped up to the oche to play solo against Karen Tucker and Bar­bara Thomas, who won the game giv­ing Peny­bont the 7-2 away win.

At the Pen­coed So­cial club the B team were a player short but started well with Caryn Macken­zie and Deb­bie Roberts win­ning the first two sin­gles. Once again it was a struggle from there, with Pen­coed RFC tak­ing the four re­main­ing sin­gles and three dou­bles.

At the White Horse it was 3-3 at the end of the sin­gles against the So­cialites. The home team could only man­age to win one dou­ble giv­ing the So­cialites the 5-4 away win.

The Rail­way club were home to the Pen­coed So­cial Club A and it was another win for the away team. Pen­coed took the lead with four sin­gles fol­lowed by two dou­bles for a 6-3 away win.

It was a re­peat of the 6-3 score at the Two Brew­ers where the win­ners were the away team the West House A.

Although the Five Bells were trounced 8-1 last week, they fought back this week and had a 6-3 home win against the United Ser­vices club.

The West House B team had a bye this week.
