St George’s A gained an impressive 9-1 success over WCC A in Division One of the Leamington & District League, writes Phil John.
Damon Fenton, Matt Jordan and Earl Sweeney took all the singles, leaving Clive Irwin and Phil Paine to avoid the whitewash by claiming the doubles.
St George’s B posted a similar scoreline against Rugby B, Mark Jackson and Ron Vose the maximum men as Ryan Stockham prevented the rout by beating Luke Hobbins.
Wellesbourne crushed Enigmas 10-0 with Alan Cotton, Pete Dunnett and John Price in top form, while Colebridge A were in no mood to help their B team, mopping up all the points through Ian Ferguson, Kate Hughes and Mike Rinnhofer.
Free Church B did nick a point off their A side, Sam Weaving beating Lee Dorning, but Deepak Chandrababu, Timmy Cooper and Dorning ensured there were no further slips.
The B side fared better at WCC B, losing 6-4 with Weaving and Sam Wiggins both winning two.
However, Simon Griew won his three in straight games and partnered Nilton Green to the doubles.
WCC B had arguably a much better performance in a 6-4 loss to a strong Rugby A.
Matthew Outhwaite’s presence was the crucial factor as he won three and paired with Ryan Lines for the doubles, Lines notching the other two points.
Once again Griew was WCC’s star with two fine wins allied to singles from Green and Martin Hunter.
Early Division Two leaders Free Church C were shown little respect by their D team who shocked them 6-4 thanks mainly to Adam Cofler’s outstanding treble. Cherrylyn Matthews and Anthony Smith each won once and Smith joined Cofler to snatch the doubles. Chris Blowey won twice for C.
Whitnash A look to be serious challengers after edging out Phoenix 6-4 despite a Paul Calloway hat-trick.
Roy Joiner added one but Whitnash bounced back with wins from Paul Riman and Richard Smith, the doubles and three concessions.
Phoenix recovered to see off Rugby C 8-2.
