CANTERBURY & DISTRICT TTA PRESS REPORT 01/03/2012

The top two sides in Division 4 continue to keep winning and are beginning to draw away from the rest of the pack.
Leaders Faversham D made short work of their recent encounter against Choughs F,romping to a 5-0 win.
Lara Rodday swept aside Michael Green and William Newman without dropping a set while Ethan Braden was stretched to 5 sets against Green.
Two points behind them,Faversham C kept up the pressure with a similar scoreline against Dizzy Heights C.
Mark Thomas disposed of Alan Culver and Paul Connolly in straight sets but Colin Blythe needed a deciding set to get past Culver.
The two Faversham sides meet at the end of February in a game that will probably decide the eventual winner of this division.
The only side that could possibly exert a challenge to these two sides is Choughs E.
Having lost to both the Faversham sides already Choughs were looking for big wins against the other sides to maintain a chance of promotion.
Against Choughs F they almost got a clean sheet but were thwarted by James Molony beating Ethan Solly in 4 sets.
This win leaves Choughs 6 points behind Faversham C on the same number of games but both sides face each other at the beginning of March in a crucial showdown.
Of the 3 Chestfield Warriors sides in this division,only Warriors 10 retain the remotest chance of finishing in the top two,despite having lost 5 games this season.
Their last two games have produced two wins and seven points but it still leaves them 5 points behind Choughs but having played two games more.
Riece Baxter was unbeaten against Dizzy Heights C, while Adam Dyer was unbeaten against Dizzy Heights B but it may not be enough for them as far as promotion is concerned.

Iron Room A have assumed the top spot in the Premier Division after a couple of decisive results in their recent games.
A Paul Morford treble led the way for a 7-2 win over Heron A and a telling 9-0 win over Chestfield Warriors 1 sees them lead the division by 4 points from Hoath A but the current champions have two games in hand.
Hoath maintained their push to retain their title with an overwhelming 9-0 win over Faversham A but the score did not reflect how close Faversham came close to taking a few points off the current champions.
Azim Griffiths took both Andy Roberts and Ian Mileham to 5 sets while David Jeavons took it to a decider against Mike Howard.
Herne Bay A are still in the hunt for honours and their latest victims were again the unfortunate Faversham A side.
The Bay scored a 9-0 win,but Griffiths went the distance with Peter Roberts while Jeavons took Andrew Cannon to a 5th set.
Despite these two losses Faversham seem certain to stay in the Premier division but Warriors 1 are looking more likely to join Herne Bay B as probable candidates for relegation.
