They continued their onslaught against Chestfield Warriors 5,this time it was Terry Wibberley who dropped a game against Bob Hassam in a tight 5 setter.
Faversham maintained their momentum in their next match against Warriors 4,but faced tougher games.Craig Kirby was stretched to 5 sets by Simon Howe before coming through while Wibberley was swept aside in straight sets by Jake Coombes and had to dig deep to conjure up a 5th set win against Howe.
