BRUCE B 3-4 FLOW­ER­POT

A DES­PER­ATE Flow­er­pot de­scended on a Bruce B team which is slowly and steadily gain­ing in con­fi­dence for what was a door-die tie.

With the sign of seven loom­ing over the Pot and not a win since June it was vi­tal to take the spoils.

Kev Whit­more got the Pot off to a win­ning start, fol­lowed by a win for son Andy.

Ge­off Wood, en­joy­ing a pur­ple patch, made it 3-0 to leave cap­tain Wayne Eadie the task of clos­ing the match out, which he did with a win over Cliff Wilkin­son.

Wins for Trevor Goodey and Ed­die Bain­bridge and a win in the dou­bles then made the score more

re­spectable for Bruce.

SPORT­ING B 2-5 NAGS A

At the Sport­ing Club the hosts’ B team were en­ter­tain­ing the Nags A, who left 5-2 vic­tors.

Nags’ Steve Hol­land and Sport­ing’s Dan Rim­mer won to make it 1-1 early on and the hosts’ Lee McCabe put them ahead, Lee Banks then lev­el­ling mat­ters.

From there though, Andy Rath­mill and Micky Plant made it 4-2 and dou­bles wins fur­ther strength­ened the Nags’ league po­si­tion.

SPORT­ING A 2-5 QUEENS A

At the same venue Sport­ing A were tak­ing on the Queens A.

With the Queens only sport­ing five play­ers they were al­ready a game down when they ar­rived.

But Mark Turner (with a 103 out-shot in an 18-dart leg), Neil Pod­more and Andy Jack­son put the Queens in con­trol.

Glen Valen­tine beat Jack Mitchell in the game of the night and Mark Billing chalked up win num­ber five.

Sport­ing won the dou­bles to make the fi­nal score 5-2 on the night.

BRITSH FLAG 4-3 RAIL­WAY VIEW

The Flag must be be­gin­ning to be­lieve, as they de­railed View’s four-matc un­beaten run.

Up for it for the Flag were win­ners Mark White­hurst, Mick New­ton and cap­tain Nigel Steele.

Find­ing that win­ning touch for the Rail­way were Paul Bar­nett, Ian Ar­mitt and Wez Em­mery.

At 3-3 the Flag’s Steele and Mark Bar­ber clamed the dou­bles match.

BRO­KEN CROSS 5-2 SPIN­NERS

the

Nei­ther the third or fourth team is used to los­ing matches but home team Bro­ken Cross showed they had the edge.

First blood went to the Cross with Jim Turner tak­ing his game and Mick Smith made it 2-0. Mark Cair­ney made it 3-0 but the in-form Steve Sel­lars pulled one back.

Neil Ridg­way put paid to a Spin­ners come­back with a 2-1 be­fore the outof-town­ers’IanWadsworth made it 4-2 .

Cross took the dou­bles to close the gap to the Spin­ners to two points.

QUEENS B 6-1 BRUCE A

Queens B, com­ing off a By­ron bat­ter­ing the previ- ous week, saw off Bruce A, with only Mick Graves’ win avoid­ing a white­wash.

Andy McKeith, Dave Hig­gin­botham, Savvi Tom­czak, Mike Hunter and Rob Lock­ett all won be­fore vic­tory in the dou­bles.

NAGS B 0-7 LORD BY­RON

Nags B couldn’t reg­is­ter a sin­gle leg as they lost 7-0 to a ram­pant Lord By­ron.

Steve Clarke, Tec Leach Dar­ren Jack­son, Steve Kimp­ton and Scott New­ton all won their matches 2-0 be­fore Matt McAl­lis­ter hit a 17-darter on his way to beat­ing Allen Leigh.

The dou­bles also went the By­ron’s way to com­plete a 7-0 thrash­ing with no legs con­ceded, a win that serves no­tice of intention as the By­ron re­turn to the top.

Mac­cles­field Fly­ing Club sent their pi­geons to Hullav­ing­ton for this week’s race. Ge­orge and Mark Green­wood timed the first bird home in 2hr 32min over the 118 miles. They also took fourth, with Martin Hough sec­ond and third.
