Bath Invaders A were indebted to Bhargav Chandra as they captured the KO Cup for the first time in a closely contested final at St John’s school. Chandra carded a fine treble as the Invaders triumphed over Chippenham B 5-4, with Dave Busari and Ian Maggs winning one each to seal the victory. Alex Kearney claimed a brace and, Andy Cox and Scott Cooper, a win apiece for Chippenham who lost out in the final game of the contest.
Chippenham C provided some consolation for their club-mates as they beat Yatton Keynell B 7-2 to retain the Restricted Cup. Andy Purkiss beat Paul Vincent and Brenda Baldwin for Yatton’s two wins, but John Clifford registered a maximum for the winners, to add to the pairs from Vincent and Baldwin.
Ensleigh A took the Handicap Cup after coming back from a 3-0 deficit to win 6-3 against Bath Invaders B. Paul Jeffery, Martyn Millard, and Simon Monks won one each to put Invaders three up and in a strong position, but Ensleigh came storming back with Ian Clark, Ping Zhang, and Olly Newton all winning twice to shock the Division One champions.
