Chronicle Report 26th Nov 2015

In the first round of cup matches of the season it was, as is often the case, the Handicap Cup that produced the closest matches.

Premier Division Oldfield B had to use all their experience to pip Batheaston B of Division 2 by five games to four. Mel Henry took advantage of his handicap to register a maximum for the lower ranked team, for whom Norman Thomas also won a game. Mervyn George and Mike Noel both carded pairs for the victors, with Dennis Coombe completing their tally.

In another close contest, between two teams battling for the promotion places in Division 2, Radstock Wreckers edged out visiting Bathford D 5-4. Wayne Button’s hat-trick was decisive for the hosts, whose other scorers were Dave Gamlin and Steve Moss. Russell Cole claimed a brace for Bathford in reply, with Leon and Julian Kashdan-Brown adding a game each.

Last season’s competition runners-up, and current Division 1 table toppers, Bath Invaders, also went down 5-4 at home to Bathford A from the Premier Division. Pairs from Ray Bennett and Albert Bolhuis, plus a single success from Steve Phillips were sufficient to win the contest for the visitors. Raymond Hall (2) Paul Jeffery and Neil Darnley responded for the Invaders.

Division 1 side Batheaston A could only field two players for their away tie against Bathford E, and were beaten 6-3. John Holding took the honours for the hosts, winning both his games, and Tony Parr also won a game to add to the three forfeited games. Richard Cotton (2) and Dennis Townsend won games for the depleted visitors.
