Although Rainham 3 lost this match the 4 points gained against Chatham Cumberland could be vital in their bid to avoid the drop to Div 2. All the Rainham players, including Keith Adams who was playing up from the 5th team, enjoyed success against Paul Cullern and the Davie family combined to win a 5 leg Doubles, despite Jim breaking his bat, for the 4th point. Anchs 4 drop into the 2nd relegation spot following their postponement this week. For Cumberland Max Day was borrowed from the Dorset team and showed what good touch he is in at the moment with a maximum. However, he could not wrestle the Player of the Match Award from Captain Gareth Fox who also went unbeaten.
