League Report: Week 15, starting 13th Feb Things are really hotting up as the League season enters its third and final round of matches. IBM A secured another 10-pointer, while clubmates IBM B suffered badly against the youthful South Wonston A. In Division 2 Swanmore A took a giant stride towards promotion back to Division 1, while Division 3's South Wonston D learned the agony of defeat after an amazing string of 12 straight wins.

Division 1

IBM A 16171.ibmavsfiveteesa.2.html Five Tees A
IBM A are well aware of the threat represented by Kings A at the top of Division 1, and took no risks here. Wins all round for Paul May , Keith Dickenson and Julian Walton .

South Wonston A 16171.southwonstonavsibmb.2.html IBM B
Before this match Ed Robertson had won only 2 out of 18 in Division 1, while his opponent had won 14 out of 18. No contest? Ed not only won this one, but all 3 on the night. 3 wins also for Jared Schaller .

Division 2

Swanmore A 16171.swanmoreavshursley.2.html Hursley
Without their most regular and successful player, Barry Dobson , Hursley were like lambs to the slaughterhouse when they travelled to a rampant and ruthless Swanmore A. 3 wins each for Kevin Muldowney , Dave Diment and Geoff Pavey

Winnall 16171.winnallvskingsb.2.html Kings B
Russell Durham didn't play, but Winnall still managed to reverse the score of the corresponding Autumn fixture. The big difference was Dave Hooker , who won all 3 this time instead of none. Winnall are at last looking like possible promotion candidates.

Division 3

Kings D 16171.kingsdvskingsc.2.html Kings C
This one went off script a bit, with Kings D forgetting to give way gracefully to their club's more senior team. Aedan Goodenough has been scoring freely for the D team all season, and chipped in with 3 more points on this occasion.

Owslebury 16171.owsleburyvsibmc.2.html IBM C
Gillian Hebard has played nearly 200 League singles matches over the past 7 seasons, but this was only the second time she's won 3 in the same evening. This performance helped her to top place in the Improvers list - without any practice at all, by her own account!

Five Tees C 16171.fiveteescvssouthwonstond.2.html South Wonston D
South Wonston D had an unblemished run of wins all season until this match. They're so far ahead that promotion is already virtually assured, but their pride will have been injured. Len Field 's good run continued with 3 wins for Five Tees C.

Congratulations to Ben Cawston on reaching the last 8 of the English Junior National Championships at Huddersfield (30th April 2016). Ben beat the 6th ranked England player, Alec Ward, 11-9 in the 7th game (!) before losing to the England number 2, Luke Savill. Garth Kinlocke was the League's last player to get to the last 8 of the Juniors, about 10 years ago. He got as high as 14th in England Men, and is still (May 2016) ranked 22nd.
