Elsewhere Newton emphatically outpointed County Officers A 9 1 and Simon Jones was undefeated as Pulford moved up the table following a hard fought 8 2 win over Officers first team.

The Saughall teams continue to dominate division 1, the Port squad overcame a useful Groves C team 7 3 thanks to a Hong Wang maximum,  and Mike Phelan led the Deva team to an emphatic 9 1 scoreline over Groves B, all his games going to a 5th decider.

Jack Auckland was undefeated as Tarporley Electric drew with Beechwood , his team  still missing number 1 player Andrew Moulton through injury. 

In division 2 Martin Dodd and Gareth Hughes ensured a fine 9 1 victory for Barrow B over Officers D, and Newton E drafted in Haseeb Hanif against the Newton D squad and he promptly won all his games to give the team a 7 3 win, their first of the season. Matty Gilmour was again in fine form for bottom placed Barrow C but failed to save the team from a 3 7 defeat.

Stephen Wright was undefeated for Tarporley A as they returned from Officers H with an important 8 2 victory and John Ashton was in top form for Officers G  winning all his games in 5  sets, but failed to save his team from a 3 7 reverse at Saughall Inst.  At the top Barrow D edged out  a useful Groves E squad 6 4.
