Premier Division

3rd placed Hoath B visited Chestfield Warriors 1 and inflicted a punishing 8-1 win over their hosts to keep in touch with the league leaders. An unbeaten treble from David Jeavons and Chris Hearn, plus 2 from Mike Chapman did the damage, with a single win for Jack Stewart saving the whitewash for the humbled Warriors.
In their quest to win the premiership, 1st placed Hoath A relentlessly overpowered 5th placed Heron A with an excellent 9-0 whitewash. For the visiting Hoath team, Ian Mileham, Simon Rudland and Barry Chapman proved too strong for the unfortunate Herons, who then succumbed to a 3-1 loss in the doubles.
Chestfield Warriors 2 were thankful for 2 wins by Paul Waumsley & Joe Britnell, and with 1 from Ian Cooke, edged a hard fought 5-4 win over their guests, Faversham A. Once again, Harry Law proved his worth for the Faversham team. His 3 wins, supplemented by a 4th from Ethan Braden earned their 4 points, with the away team fighting back for an incisive 3-0 doubles victory.
A travelling Herne Bay A were the unfortunate victims of Iron Room A, who, determined to maintain their challenge for top spot, won this encounter comprehensively with an 8-1 victory. A win for Peter Roberts was the only success for the visitors, but 3 from Russell Bates and Keith Yarnley, plus 2 from Martin Hewitt for the home team was enough to nullify any hope for the Bays. Further disappointment ensued for Herne Bay, losing the doubles 3-0.

Division 1

An all round team performance from Paul Whittaker (2), Dirk Froebrich (2) and Adam Dyer (2), ensured a satisfying 6-3 home win for Chestfield Warriors 4 over Herne Bay C, who once again, had to rely on Bob Edwards for their 3 points, with his unbeaten contribution. The winning Warriors then managed to round off their singles success with a closely contested 3-1 doubles win.
Herne Bay B paid a visit to Whitstable Natives A and extended their position at the top of the league to 6 points with a convincing 8-1 win. A solitary point to save the whitewash for the Natives was well won by Tony Causer, playing up from division 2. The losing Natives fared no better in the doubles as the Bay team eased to a comfortable 3-1 result.
A welcome win for David Cue and one from Brian Kennett was the only resistance lowly Iron Room C could offer to Chestfield Warriors 3A as Iron Room lost at home, 7-2. A trio of 3-0 wins for Ricky Kay, plus 3 by Jonny Nevett and 1 from Tony Morgan for the 3rd placed Warriors, helped to close the gap between Warriors 4 to four points. Stung by their singles loss, Iron Room hit back with a surprisingly comfortable 3-1 doubles success.
Reduced to 2 players and thus conceding 3 points, Herne Bay E were always going to struggle in their match against Chestfield Warriors 3 who eased to a 7-2 win thanks to the unbeaten Denis Cannon and Roger Jordan. For the Bay’s, Giulio Guariglia and Dave Thompson had a win each and then put up some stiff resistance in the doubles before a relieved Warriors emerged as 3-2 winners..

Division 2

As the league leaders were without a fixture this week, Blean A seized the opportunity to go level on points at the top, handing out a 9-0 whitewash to visiting Chestfield Warriors 8. Reduced to 2 players, the Warriors could do nothing as the Blean team kept a completely clean sheet, with Paul Simmonds, Rob Easton and Derek Whiddett winning all their remaining matches 3-0. Despite a spirited Warriors doubles display, the 3-2 scoreline eventually went in favour of Blean.
Reduced to two players, Chestfield Warriors 6A once again called on the services of a player from division 4, when they entertained Faversham C. However, young Lewis Marsh from Warriors 16 was unable to overcome the experience of Nick Wibberley (3), Mark Thomas (1) and Kevin Bourner (2), as the Faversham side eased to a 6-3 victory. 2 wins for Peter McCaig and 1 from Colin Relf gave the Warriors 3 points whose woeful evening was rounded off when they also lost the doubles 3-1.
Whitstable Natives B, at home to Chestfield Warriors 6, nipped a 5-4 result in this close division 2 contest. Tony Causer (2), Gordon Williams (2) and Keith Garrad (1), were responsible for the Native’s win. The Warriors called upon Linda Wickings from Chestfield Warriors 7 in order to field a full team and her excellent 3-2 win over Tony Causer, added to the 2 wins from John Metcalfe and 1 from Bob Young, earned the Warriors 4 points. Compensation for the losing Warriors came in the form of a tough but favourable 3-1 doubles result.

Division 3

A luckless Herne Bay H had no answer to a merciless Choughs C whose three trebles from Jackie Fok, Dave Goddard and Richard Partridge inflicted a 9-0 whitewash over the Bays’ who remain winless and bottom of the league. The win for Choughs pushed them to the top of the league by 2 points, and they exacerbated the Bay’s problems when they sailed to a 3-0 win in the doubles.
Herne Bay I went to Chestfield Warriors 11 and 3 wins from Al Parkes, together with 2 wins from Simon Chambers and 1 from Colin Chaston earned themselves a pleasing 6-3 away win. 2 wins for Shaun Reid and 1 from his son James bought the Warriors 3 points, but Warriors were unable to prevent Bay from taking an easy 3-0 doubles win.
After winning their first game of the evening, Whitstable Natives C lost the initiative and were never able to regain the lead in their home match against Chestfield Warriors 10. They managed to draw level three times before the final game of the night went to the Warriors, to establish a 5-4 away win. Simon Howe ruthlessly smashed his way to 3 unchallenged wins, and with the match score at 4-4, team mate Bernard Ebeck had his 2nd win of the night to steal the result. More disappointment followed for the Natives when the Warriors took a 3-1 win in the doubles.
In what must be the longest match of the week, Herne Bay G took on Chestfield Warriors 9 and the teams played 45 legs out of a possible 50, with 6 games going to a 3-2 result. With 2 wins apiece by Paul Messenger and Roger Towsin, Gerry Allen added 1 more to give the Bay side a narrow 5-4 victory. Bill Hackney had 2 wins for Warriors, and a win each by Bob Hassam and Caroline Hanson gave the Bay’s visitors 4 points. A tense doubles match ensued, with the Warriors earning some recompense by edging a 3-2 result.

Division 4

Brothers Lewis and George Marsh for Chestfield Warriors 16 maintained their number 1 spot in division 4 at the expense of club mates Chestfield Warriors 17 with a convincing 5-0 win. Warriors 17 put up some resistance in the competition doubles, but eventually went down 3-1 to the league leaders.
Herne Bay K welcomed 2nd placed Chestfield Warriors 19 to their home venue, but with 2 wins from Paul Anthony and 1 from Mark Dixon, plus a match doubles win, the Warriors team made sure of a 4-1 victory. Josh Reeve gained the only point for the Bay side, but the Warriors completed their successful evening with a comfortable 3-0 win in the competition doubles.
In the derby match between Chestfield Warriors 18 and Chestfield Warriors 14, Tim Platt, had 2 wins, and with 1 by Jan Aldridge, plus a match doubles win, ensured a 4-1 victory for Warriors 18. Sebastion Keeble had a welcome win over Jan to earn a point for Warriors 14, and prevent a whitewash, but their opponents cemented their singles success as they eased to a 3-0 competition doubles win.
