Round 13 - Senior British League 2013-14

Sycamore go into the final round of the season needing victory over Greenhouse to secure the title after their 4-4 draw with Ormesby.

The two sides could not be separated after eight sets with doubles from Paul McCreery and Ryan Jenkins for their respective sides guiding the teams to a point each.

Sycamore are now level with Urban, who demolished Greenhouse 8-0 to take the title to a final round but sit at the summit of the table thanks to their better sets difference.

The contest between Sycamore and Ormesby was a spectacle as the season’s two pre-season favourites locked horns.

Single point that summarises the quality of the showdown between the two clubs.

Sycamore drew first blood as Chris Doran beat Richard Andrews in five before a mesmeric contest between Alex Perry and Jenkins lit up the Ormesby hall, with the Welshman Jenkins eventually prevailing in five.

The two sides went hit for hit throughout before Sycamore secured the point with Perry’s victory over Michael Marsden. Talented Tom Jarvis then levelled the contest at the death with victory over Sean Cullen.

Meanwhile, Urban eased their way past Greenhouse, who need victory themselves in the final round to secure safety.

The quartet of Peter Musko, Alim Hirji, Daniel Schaffer and Gerome Bahuaud were too good for Greenhouse, who have claimed just one set throughout the weekend.

If Greenhouse are to be relegated, Drumchapel must claim a draw against Barrow in the final round after their 7-1 win over Wymondham. A point would see the two teams end level, but Drumchapel have a far superior sets difference.

Finally, Fusion and Barrow fought out an entertaining 4-4 draw. The two sides, both gunning for third place going into the final round, nullified each other to take a share of the spoils. Superb doubles from Joanna Drinkhall and Danny Lawrence, with Lawrence registering an astounding victory over Michael O’Driscoll, continued Barrow’s fine season.
