Second placed Rough Common are experiencing a dip in form,managing only 14 points in their last 3 games.
Their recent game against Iron Room B saw them go from a 2-1 up scoreline to lose the next 5 ties and lose the match 3-6. They still have a game in hand over Heron but Iron Room stay in contention,just 4 points behind Heron.
Sandwiched between Rough Common and Iron Room come Choughs B,a side with just one loss in their last 5 games.This side may prove to be the dark horse of the 4 sides and they still have Iron Room and Rough Common to play.

3rd Division side,Dizzy Heights,have regained leadership of the division,with two emphatic win in their recent games.
A 7-2 win over Herne Bay H,followed by an 8-1 victory over Blean D sees them maintain their unbeaten record and create a 9 point gap between them and Chestfield Warriors 5.
Andrew Coleman failed to maintain his 100% record against Blean,losing 1-3 to Jean Jones but his side are sustaining their winning performance and failing any undue disasters they could lift the 3rd Division title.

Four sides are in contention with just 12 points between them.
Warriors 5 are in second place but a point behind them comes Warriors 7
These two sides met recently and an outstanding performance by Jack Young helped Warriors 5 to a 6-3 win that dented Warriors 7’s hope of a possible top 2 finish.

In match which saw just two players for each side,Barry Cook beat Richard Partridge 3-2 and David Cooke 3-0,while Miroslav Pekarcik beat Partridge 3-2 but lost to David Cook 1-3,giving Natives a 6-3 win.
