Drumchapel continue to march on at the front and now top the league with 19 points after this weekend’s match against Cardiff City. The rest of the matches went in a similarly predicable way with no major changes in the league table standings. 

North Ayrshire lost when they played Ormesby this weekend but were able to apply the pressure and succeeded in taking home 2 victories after the score finished on 6-2. Craig Hardie and Colin Dalgleish came away from the weekend with a win each when they both played Joe Cope.

Colin Dalgleish came close to winning both his matches after playing Darius Knight but narrowly lost out in the 5th set [8-11, 11-5, 11-7, 10-12, 11-8].

Ormesby took home another 2 points along with man of the match after Fillip Szymanski comfortably won both his matches in straight sets against Richard Main [11-6, 11-9, 11-4] and Sean Doherty [11-5, 11-9, 11-5 ].

The club are now 6 points ahead of 3rd place Fusion with only 2 matches left to play.

Kevin Dolder was the star player for Halton when they played Fusion at home this weekend by winning both his matches in two exciting 5 set battle against Lorestas Trumpauskas [11-9, 12-10, 6-11, 7-11, 11-9] and Joseph Hee [3-11, 12-10, 9-11,11-8, 11-8].

These were the only two points the club were able to gain from this match meaning their score on the table it still set at 0. 

Despite the two losses Fusion were able to take the 2 points with relative ease. Adeoye Adewale won both matches in straight sets and at just 14 years old Joseph Hee from Singapore also has a 3 set victory against Connor Whitehead [9-11, 7-11, 3-11].

Fusion have now overtaken BATTS on the table after they did not feature in the weekends fixtures levelling the amount of matches the two clubs have played.

Cardiff City had a tough weekend playing the leagues number one club who are currently 13 points ahead of them on the table.
