A cool but dry evening at Steventon Sports Club

A damp early evening cleared for the Captain’s and Secretary’s knock out competition at Steventon Sports Club.

With only 6 Secretaries and 8 Captains 2 prelim games were battled for the Secretaries.

Nicky Biggs battled through 3 legs and finally won his game against Paul Ealey in a 3 stick decider.

Geoff Lee took his game against Bob Duff to 3 legs to get his place in the next round cracking two 4s in the process. In the following round Nicky Biggs couldn’t get his form back as Geoff Lee won the first leg 4-3 and took a 1 stick decider to secure his place in the Final.

Graham Brown made it look easy as he set 5 in the first leg against Keith Buckle who couldn’t get past a 1 in the second leg to save the game.

In the Captain’s an after draw mistake by the official gave Dave Sapey a bye to the next round.

Terry Downes took Dave Dix to a 3rd leg with minimal scoring but only scored 1 in the 3rd leg decider which Dave doubled.

Mick Philips got all 4s to win through even with Paul Longford setting a great 5 in the second leg.

Stuart Wilson won over Michael Jarvis when the 4-4 second leg went to 3 sticks (2-2) and 1 stick.

Stuart Wilson set respectable 3s in the other Semi-Final but Mick Philips got the 4s he needed for his place in the final.

Competitions: Red Drive (3s)

With the temperature cooling down the 3s competition was the hottest thing at the venues of The Vine and Fox Denchworth on Thursday.

At the Fox four teams competed. Plum Pudding took Ab Utd B(A) two straight legs with Terry Downes hitting 5-4. Spread Eagle B(B) then took out the Tandem with 2 straight legs. Plum Pudding then sealed the deal against Spread B(B) with 9 in each leg Ken Fisher doing 4’s and Terry Downes doing 3’s (and Tosh Woolloff doing 2’s).  Plum Pudding go through to the final.

At The Vine 7 teams turned up, the exception being the side from the Spread Eagle B (A).

Ab RBL did come through and deservedly so. However it was the Ab RBL A of Sapey, Ealey, Champ (Gavaghan) rather than Ab RBL B that were due to be there. In this case  we do need to make allowance for players from teams that really support the competitions so the decision to let them play was made. (We’ve also had no complaints about it either and the Plum are happy to play on).

As for the events that unfolded in the first round the Tandem beat Ab Con Club, Berinsfield A bt Berinsfield B, and Abg RBL shocked Abg Utd to 3 legs. Ab Utd could only set 5 in the deciding leg. The Spread Eagle had the fortune or misfortune to draw a bye. In the last 4 Berinsfield A bt the Tandem and Abg RBL beat the Spread Eagle, again in 3 legs. In the match to make the final Abg RBL defeated Berinsfield A in 2 straight legs. Standing at one leg to Abg RBL and a tied second leg, a set of 6 with 3 sticks by the RBL side took them through.

There were no sixes and no really high leg scores – the Spread’s 12 against Abg RBL was the best. The more favoured sides really struggled on the alley for some reason.

Red Drive (3’s) Final will be on Finals Night between Plum Pudding (Fisher/Downes/Woolloff) and Abingdon RBL A (B) (Sapey/Ealey/Champ)

P.S.  It’ll be my intention to propose full competition rules to be adopted at the AGM in January – they’ll be published for comments beforehand. — Paul Stone Acting Secretary.

Competitions: Fours (updated)

A great summer evenings with teams turning out at both the Spread Eagle and Abingdon United FC for the Fours Knockout Competition.

At United the prelim saw Ab Utd B(A)  take  Spread Eagle B in a straight 2 legs with Bob Duff scoring the only 6 of the night. They then went on to defeat Berinsfield.  Steventon Sports defeated Plum Pudding to meet United in the semi.
In the Semi Final Utd started a strong first leg with 13 including two 5s from the tailenders which Steventon couldn’t match but then Steventon went on to take the second leg as United slowed to single figures. Utd then set 11 which was giving Steventon a chance with ‘just’ a 3 per person to win. Unfortunately a good 3 start was downed with a blob putting severe pressure on the lower half of the team that left anchor Derek Fletcher with a big ask of a 5 to draw which failed with the first two sticks.

At the Spread Eagle venue Abg RBL A eased pass Berinsfield A in the first preliminary.

Spread Eagle A took on Abg Utd B (A) in the other prelim. At a leg apiece, the Spread set 16 only for Abg Utd to come out victors with 17 and a stick to spare, the best leg of the night..

In the semi finals the Tandem beat the Spread Eagle B (B) and Abg Utd B (A) beat the Abg RBL A.

In the final the Tandem set in both legs, but leg sets of 6 and then 10 weren’t enough to test Utd, with Barry Parker not having to throw a stick in anger on the anchor.

The final will be between both Abingdon Utd B teams!

Their line up (now fixed as they’ve played will be):-

Ab Utd B (A)  – D.Davies/L.Clapton/I.Morrison/B.Parker

Ab Utd B (B)  – T.Lach/P.Barrett/B.Duff/T.Ward

Competitions: Singles (updated)

Last night’s Singles matches proved some very interesting and some predictable results.

Venue winners and securing their place in the Semi-Finals :-

Spread Eagle – Dave Dix
Abingdon Utd – Lee Clapton
Abingdon  RBL – Mick Phillips
Plum Pudding – Roger Nichols

From our reporter at the Legion – “Just the 8 turned up and had a great night of Aunt Sally with Dave Sapey hitting two 6’s on the night but couldn’t quite manage the momentum up in the final game.”

wp-1467992239674.jpgFrom the Plum Pudding – “with 8 players up and 4 from Berinsfield it was statistically inevitable that some ‘friendly fire’ was going to take place. Dave Davies saw off Paul Ealey and then Brian Reidy (who’d already beat his teammate Stuart Wilson in a 3 leg 3-1-6 stick clincher with two 5’s in the game).

Roger Nichols saw off Mick Greenway in a third leg 3 stick decider and then Malcolm “new specs” Johnson who’d already cracked a 5 to see off Ken Fisher lost out to Roger’s consistent 3’s. In the venue final Dave Davies only managed to set a 1 which Roger doubled and then Roger set a 2 which Dave just couldn’t manage. Take a look at the scorecard and it just shows competitions are anyone’s game on the night.”

Only 5 players turned up at the Spread – Dave Dix beat Brian Adams in the Venue Final.

7 players turned up at Abingdon Utd – Lee Clapton beat John Simmons in the final game.

Summer 2016 – Week 9 Results

This week’s competitions are the Singles at 4 venues  on Thursday.

Last week’s 5’s resulted in Tandem and Abingdon United B getting to the final!


We are still getting some teams not entering scorecards soon enough or posting them in time for Saturday delivery.
And some are still not putting the match id on the card. We’re halfway through the season and it’s getting beyond a joke. Scott says….. I can’t print what Scott says suffice to say if the id isn’t on the card he has to go online to check you’ve done it and that takes up more time.
If you can’t get the card done in time pass it to someone who can!


THE RESULTS

No change to the over 14s and only a couple of sixes this week.

Sixers:  D Davies (Abingdon United B),R Bumpass (Berinsfield SC).
