Howard 4 paid the price for only turning up with only 2 players this week when they visited Rainham 3 falling to a heavy 8-2 defeat. The result did flatter the home side as 4 of the 7 games went the distance all won by Rainham. Jim Davie went unbeaten on the night but both Martyn Hughes and David Scott pushed him all the way. Hughes and Scott did,however, record a singles success each over Jaspal Plaha and Peter Baker, respectively. This result moves Rainham up to a mid table position but Howard are now 3rd from bottom.
