As the qualification stage of the Summer League draws to a close the battle for a place in the Beckett Shield becomes more intense.

Unbeaten Group 3 leaders,CW9 Little n Large,played their final group game against Kayos. CW9 seemed assured of qualification but were looking to wrap up the group undefeated while Kayos needed a good result to make certain of qualification.

Kevin Kay had to give Jacob Midson a 15 point lead but he caught up in both sets to carve out a 2-0 win.
Midson regrouped in his game against Joe Kay,converting a one point deficit for a two set win.
Davies had the advantage of a 16 point start over Kevin Kay and game was locked at 1-1 before Davies secured a significant 2-1 win and level the match at 2-2.
The Kayos pair had to concede an 8 point start to CW9 but the Kays stormed to a 2-0 victory,bringing to an end the undefeated run of CW9,but more importantly put themselves in a strong position for qualification,ten points behind CW9 but with two games still to play.

In the same group Pheasant Pluckers needed a comprehensive result against Choughs Other Team if they were to have any chance of qualification.
Graham Solly had to give Bob Hassam a 12 point start but the Choughs player could not make an impression on his opponent and went down 2-0
