Premier Division

A convincing 8-1 home win for 2nd placed Hoath A has moved them to within 2 points of league leaders Iron Room A who were without a game this week. Herne Bay A, currently 3rd in the league, were their victims, as a hat-trick of wins for Phil Thomas and Ian Mileham, plus 2 wins by John Ferguson cemented Hoath’s victory. Peter Roberts saved the visitors from a whitewash with a superb, hard fought victory over John, but with a 3-0 win in the doubles, Hoath now lead the premier doubles league by one point. The two top teams now have just one match to play in the league, so neither team can afford any slip-ups as the season comes to a close.

Hoath C entertained Faversham A in this mid-table clash and fell to a 6-3 home defeat. 2 wins for Mike Howard and a win for Chris Hearn gave Hoath 3 points, with Ben Greenwood, whose 3 games all went to 5 legs, just losing out in all three. An unbeaten Harry Law was the architect of the with for Faversham, his 3 wins complimented by 2 from Richard Fever and 1 by Callum McDonagh, playing up from division 1. Faversham were unable to add a doubles result to their singles win, as Hoath C exacted a 3-1 doubles win.

With only 2 players available, Heron B were facing an uphill task in their derby match against club-mates Heron A, who, grateful for the 3 conceded points, eased to a 7-2 win. Peter Chapman and Arthur Martin both managed a win each to give Heron B 2 home points, but Dave Emery, for Hoath A added 2 wins to the gifted 3, with team-mates Dianne Pearce and Roger Pingram adding a win each for their 7 point total. Heron B could do no btetter in the closing doubles as they suffered a 3-0 defeat.

Division 1

Chestfield Warriors 2, who climbed to the top of division 2 last week, were subject to a 5-4 home defeat at the hands of their guest, Iron Room B, and now only have a 3 point lead over their club-mates, Chestfield Warriors 2, who also have a game in hand. 2 wins each for Paul Whittaker and Ricky Kay earned 4 points for the Warriors, but Michelle Kingsland led the Iron Room to victory with 3 excellent wins. A win each for Michael Lee and Steve Bispham, plus Michelle’s 3 was enough to just nudge the result in Iron Room’s favour, with the Warriors fighting back to claim a 3-0 doubles win.

Division 2

What a difference a week makes. Chestfield Warriors 7, who suffered an 8-1 defeat by Chestfield Warriors 5 in a catch-up match the previous week, won this derby match with a vengeful 5-4 win. Warriors 7 had Aaron Hollingsworth on song, winning all his 3 games, and George Marsh, playing up from division 3, added 2 more to give them a match winning 5 points. Warriors 5 had to find 2 players to make up their team, Shaun Reid borrowed from Warriors 6, managed 2 fine wins, Peter McCaig from Warriors 10 in division 3, also had a good win, with John Metcalfe supplying 1 win for their 4 points, keeping Warriors 5 in 2nd place. However, a 3-0 doubles win provided some consolation for the losing Warriors team, maintaining their equal 2nd place in the doubles league.

A win each for Keith Ackland and Dave Mason was the only resistance offered by Blean B when they were subjected to a 7-2 home defeat by a travelling Herne Bay G. A pleasing treble by Simon Chambers was backed up by 2 wins apiece for Al Parkes and Danny Reardon, giving the visitors the win, which was not as easy as the score-line would suggest, as proved when home team put aside their singles disappointment to edge a 5 leg doubles match 3-2.

Division 3

A single, 5 leg win by Dave Goddard saved Herne Bay I from a home whitewash when they welcomed Blean C to their venue. With 3 clean wins, Laurie Newman paved the way for Blean’s 8-1 away win, Peter Cole (3) was also unbeaten for Blean, and Alan Dilnot added 2 more. The win keeps 3rd placed Blean equal on points with 2nd placed Chestfield Warriors 10 who have a game in hand. Blean then added a 3-1 doubles win to their singles triumph, keeping them in contention for the doubles title with the top 3 teams all on 13 points in the doubles league.

Chestfield Warriors 8 took full advantage of the 2-man team of Chestfield Warriors 11 in this club derby match. Peter Paetow and Dave Hanson won all their available games cleanly and, together with a win by Caroline Hanson, won this match 8-1. Mark Dixon, for Warriors 11, was pleased to save his team from a whitewash when he bested Caroline in a close 5 leg game, but after carding the triumph, Warriors 8 then added a 3-0 doubles result to their singles win.

Division 4

With a convincing 5-0 result, Chestfield Warriors 16 have finally managed to win their first game of the season in a derby match against Chestfield Warriors 18. 2 clean wins for Mark Holmes, wins for Kerry Holmes and Tania Clarke, plus a 3-0 match doubles win gave the exuberant Warriors 16 the victory, which they then compounded with a pleasing 3-1 competition doubles win.
