League report wc 14 January

Division 3 leaders Barrovians proved far too strong for Russell Hunt and his Barrow F squad and ran out 10-0 victors with experienced John Rowland hitting a comfortable maximum. Main rivals Saughall Institute lost a little ground as they could only defeat lowly County Officers F 8- 2 with another fine performance from Chris Walker, and elsewhere in this division in form James Deutsch captained his Officers D side to an emphatic 8-2 victory over the Officers E squad.

Steve Tibbett returned to winning ways as he led Barrow E to a battling 7-3 success over an improving Northcote team, Barrow captain Veronica Nicholas played her part with two fine wins.

The top two teams in division 1 continue to power ahead of their rivals, leaders County Officers A  out pointing Russell Benstead and his Barrow B side 8-2 and Dave Southall leading rivals Pulford A to a narrow 6-4 at home to mid table Groves. John Chan was in terrific form for Pulford B as they held the strong Groves A team to a draw and Terry Haselden led Saughall  Port to a fine 6-4 victory at home to the strong Corus C trio. John Allera and Ray Gregory were both undefeated as bottom placed Barrow A finally showed their potential and comfortably defeated Beechwood 8-2.

Division 2 leaders Barrow D, led by in form Martin Dodd,recorded a fine 7-3 home win against Saughall Deva but rivals County Officers C maintained a challenge following an 8-2 scoreline at home to a weakened Barrow C squad. Once again new signing Richard Moore was to the fore and has proved a terrific asset to the league this season.

A weakened Veterans A team with no less than four of the normal squad unavailable lost 3-7 to East Lancs in Accrington on Thursday, Simon Jones was undefeated and showed the full potential of the team when all are present. They remain in a promotion position.
