The Second round of the Albany Florists League for Newton Abbot TTC regulars, aimed at our Division Four/Five standard players, non league players and beginners, attracted 24 players.
Six divisions of four players were formed based on Round One results with all the additional players starting in the lower divisions. Many really good, close matches ensued, providing excellent competitive games both for our league players and those wanting to progress to play in the league.
The first round of matches on the night saw the top two players in each division promoted with the bottom two relegated, to form the final round of matches which count towards the individuals points tally for the competition. There were fine performances from Fred Wakefield, Andrew Davies, Rob Ferguson, Paul Beckley, Quillan Wilson and Simon Baxter in the first round of matches.
In the second, points and award winning round, Ian Richards came out top in Division 6, Simon Baxter just beat Franck in the 5th Division as they were tied on points and game difference so the result between them came into play. In the 4th Division Ivor Copley and Ollie Pead were level on points but Ivor’s games aggregate was better. David Olver bounced back from a poor Round One performance to win Division 3. Josh Redfern moving up through the divisions won Division 2. Rowan Bayliss, the current holder of the Albany Florists Cup, convincingly won Division 1 without dropping a game.
Highest points scorer this week was Andrew Davies with 9 points.
After the second session the current leader is Fred Wakefield.
We return to do it all again in two weeks time.
