In the second round of the team cup competitions the only tie played in the top flight KO Cup saw Bathford B ease to an 8-1 victory away to Radstock A, whose single success was Derek Landricombe’s win against Ray Bennett. Josh Kashdan-Brown and Steve Husbands were undefeated for the visitors.
In the Restricted Cup the tie of the round saw First division Key Centre B pip Second division Bathford D 5-4 at Keynsham despite Russell Cole’s maximum for the away team. Unfortunately for Bathford they could only muster a further single from Julian Kashdan-Brown as Mark Tanner (2) Matt Timpson (2) and Sue Ruse put the hosts through to round three.
The Key Centre A team could only field two players for their home tie against Bath Invaders B and paid the price as they were thumped 7-1, with Andy Boucher and Steve Doidge both carding maximums for the victors. Brent Pollard beat Simon Monks to prevent the white-wash.
Second division Oldfield F were no match for last season’s winners Chippenham C, who romped to a 9-0 win at Monkton Combe. Brenda Baldwin, John Clifford, and Paul Vincent were the holders’ undefeated trio.
