Chronicle Report 2nd Apr 2015

Last week saw the final round of scheduled league fixtures and, with only a small number of re-arranged matches to be played, most of key places are either settled or in little doubt.

In Division 2, Yatton Keynell C and the young Bathford E team are guaranteed promotion. The latter are virtually certain of the title after beating bottom side Bear Flat B 9-1 with Ben Jukes and Ethan Littlejohns both carding maximums. Trevor Floyd beat Oscar Teasdale to record the only point for the basement team.

Bear Flat A had a much more successful season finishing in 5th place. They defeated Bathford D 6-4 at home in their final match, thanks to hat-tricks from Andrew Steady and Pete Gibbs. Mark Davis, Cyril Case, and John Holding won a game each for the visitors.

Chippenham B are almost certain for a bottom two finish in the Premier Division, despite a creditable 6-4 win away to Oldfield B. Bryan Taylor, Andrew Perham, and Paul Vincent all registered braces for the victors, with the hosts replying through Dennis Coombe (2) and Mervyn George, plus a win in the doubles.

Oldfield A are closing in on the runners-up spot after trouncing Yatton Keynell A 10-0, with Dave Bartlett, Mark Woodcock, and Bob Hindle all undefeated.

Westhill Lambs are First Division champions. In their latest match they registered a 9-1 away success against two-man Bathford C, whose only point came from Richard Wickham’s win over Keren Millard. Dave Montano and Derek Landricombe were unbeaten for the champions.

Bathford B had a good 7-3 away win against Ensleigh, to give themselves an outside chance of pipping Yatton Keynell B for second place. Colin Thomas starred with a treble for the visitors, with Steve Phillips (2) and Richard Gaisford also contributing. Ian Clark (2) and Ping Zhang scored the points for Ensleigh.
