Competition News: A disappointing turnout in the Tom Simmons 5’s Knockout this week with two out of the six teams unable to field teams left only 3 contenders once Spread Eagle B withdrew after a pre-match issue with unsporting behaviour from a player from Spread Eagle. Spread Eagle B lodged a complaint with the Committee and the player’s team Captain/Secretary have been warned that any further behaviour will result in the player being barred from the League. The Committee will decide whether the other semi-final should be rescheduled.
Plum Pudding took on the might of Abingdon Utd B in the Semi-Final to lose 2-0 to putting Utd through.
THIS WEEK : Singles competition – see fixture list for revised venues.
No change to the Over 14s this week but Barry Parker (Ab Utd B) was unlucky with 4-5-4 and unfortunate not to retain his World Title at the Charlbury Beer Festival this year. Next time Barrington.
Competition News: Eights Final was played at Abingdon Conservative Club this week between Spread Eagle and Ab.Utd. B.

First leg drew and Spread secured it on 3 sticks then Utd took the next two legs. Spread 20-18-22 and Ab.Utd.B 20.24.23.

One match defaulted this week – no card entered for F Section North Star B vs RAL RecSoc. “Nil point”. Shame.
A special mention to the newest team/pitch in the League – The Ladygrove A of Didcot. I’ve been asked to thank Chris Harrison and Darren ‘you know the rules’ Saunders for their efforts this week. Well done Dan Sheridan for making this happen and even getting the pitch sponsored! Magnificent!
There’s a lady in the house for the over 14s in Janet Morton Waggon & Horses A – well done ! You’ve obviously vastly improved from your early season performance and/or got very fortunate with the knocks! Just shows anyone can put their mind to it.
