New sign­ing Ogi

Southport Visiter - - Health & Lifestyle - BY JIM BOOTH

CROSBY B (30pts) and Crosby A (26pts) are giv­ing the top of Divi­sion One an all too fa­mil­iar look, after con­vinc­ing 8-2 and 1-9 wins over Crosby D and at Princes St B re­spec­tively.

Ar­gyle A (26pts) are in the early mix, this after a good 7-3 derby win over their B team.

South­port A who due to a cou­ple of post­pone­ments have only played two matches, made an im­pres­sion with a fine 3-7 win at an un­der­strength Princes St A.

South­port’s new sign­ing young Ogi Kos­tov was the pick of the bunch in all round team dis­play, although hav­ing taken the sin­gles 1-7, they suc­cumbed in both dou­bles, strange how that can hap­pen!

Crosby C, after last week’s promis­ing draw against their B team, lost out nar­rowly 4-6 to Princes St C, but with both sides miss­ing key play­ers, the vis­i­tors’ Mike Win­der with two wins looked to have set­tled it.

Un­like the top tier the Sec­ond Divi­sion is be­gin­ning to look an in­trigu­ing af­fair, es­pe­cially at its sum­mit.

Ar­gyle C (29pts) lead the way as the only un­beaten side, also with a 100 per cent record.

How­ever, they left it very late against Princes St D, where their 6-4 win was clinched by cap­tain Jules Dutch.

Les Dodd with two sin­gle vic­to­ries had given the Ar­gyle out­fit the ad­van­tage in a ding dong match.

High­light for the vis­i­tors was the wel­come re­turn of Karen Gib­son who sim­ply started where she left off.

Ar­gyle D (23pts) who were with­out Nick Miller lost ground on their C team, los­ing by the same score­line at South­port B.

Cap­tain Alan Nolan with two wins be­ing the key fac­tor.

Princes St E (20pts) were just too strong for Ar­gyle E, in­flict­ing what looked like a most en­ter­tain­ing max­i­mum win you could get with only two con­tests be­ing won in three games.

Water­loo A con­tin­ued their re­cov­ery also with a max­i­mum win away to Crosby F, whilst their B team were in­volved in a tremen­dous en­counter at home to Crosby E.

Water­loo’s Ai­dan Mooney and the vis­i­tors’ Chis Mous­taka were the stand­out per­form­ers both with two wins apiece, in a tense 5-5 draw.

At the top of Divi­sion Three, Ar­gyle F (29pts) and Ar­gyle H (28pts) looked to have served up a real treat in their clash.

With both sides on 100 per cent, some­thing had to give, and with each side trad­ing blows and the lead through­out, it was just that it ended 5-5, with H team’s Ryan Hes­keth clinch­ing the fi­nal point.
