Week 6 Review

Good to see  a couple of 6’s in the scores from last week in the Premier/A section with Leigh Clapton including a third leg 6 in his 11 dolls for Abingdon Utd/Con Club for whom Phil Adams top scored with 12 dolls with Paul Barrett weighing  in with 10 dolls Steventon Sports despite a 10 doll return from Derek Fletcher were no match for their visitors who recorded a convincing 6-0 victory.

Another “sixer” was Barry Townsend for Croft Nomads in his 12 dolls against Red Lion, Barry also secured a third leg point  for the Croft a 5-1 victory for the Croft when as anchorman needing 3 dolls and missing with his first 3 sticks he made no mistake with his next 3 to level the leg. Alan Bell and Richard Berry especially and Ian Brook were al  in fine form for the Croft on the Red Lions new throw all hitting double figures. For the Red Lion Dean Bowler hit 9 dolls, his best of the season so far.

Elsewhere in the Premier/A section The Bystander and Berinsfield shared the spoils 3 apiece, for the Bystander Steve Martin and Andrew Morton top scored with 11 dolls apiece and Berinsfield welcomed back Alec Chamberlain who top scored with 12 dolls ably supported by Mick Greenaway with 11 dolls.

College Oak A inflicted the first defeat of the season on fellow A section rivals Plum Pudding with a 4-2 win helped by returns of 9 dolls each  from the two  Jamie’s…  Brown and Knight.

In the B section last week Trevor Harrhy top scored for Abingdon United who recorded a 6-0 win over Hagbourne’s Fleur team who don’t seem to have got into their stride yet this season despite Ian Heapy’s 10 dolls his best  of the season to date.

Stanford in the Vale FC  though, are flying, with their 3rd 6-0 victory this time over the Plough for whom Billy Collett top scored with 8 dolls. Also in the B section Mick Christopher made a welcome return for The Grapes after missing a number of games and he top scored with 10 dolls against Harwellian for whom the very consistent Andy Shipman returned another 9 dolls.

The Croft Bar remain the only unbeaten side in the D section with a 4-2 win over The Fox, but still trail Stanford in the league table with a third of the season complete.

In the C section Boundary House were well beaten by Abingdon Conservative Club who, like Stanford FC  also produced their third 6-0 and remain unbeaten so far this season.

The D section also has an unbeaten side in the Red Lion B, but they were forced to share the points with The Plough Hanney and there was a welcome 6-0 win for The Queens Arms against The Lamb A side who are still looking for their first win of the season.

Looking at the E section The Wheatsheaf Didcot defeated Steventon Sports B 4-2 to maintain their unbeaten record and newcomers Marcham Centre A beat the Bystander  b also 4-2.

In the F section two sides seeking their first wins saw newcomers The Horse & Jockey  B victorious 5-1 against The Plough Appleton in a game that featured 26 scored legs and 22 blobs!!

Marcham Centre B like their A side also had a welcome win, 6-0 at the North Star with R Wiltshire leading the way with 10 dolls for Marcham.

That’s about it for this week other than to say still no additional Competition entries or indeed any form teams in Section B and below and no apparent interest in anyone offering to be Section representatives. I have to say, this is disappointing, but it’s not too late so if you are following us on the website it would be great to get some entries for all of the Competitions scheduled to take place later in the season and particularly we really want to get the proposed singles and pairs for players in sections B,C, D, E, and F established this Summer. Don’t forget if you play in any of those sections you can also enter the other Competitions!
