Trinity hit their stride in week six of Glazetech Division Two with a 9-1 thumping of Bingo Mcvitie. John Warburton and Piotr Ozon finished the night unbeaten. Jack Louth scored Mcvitie’s only point in a defeat of James Biggs who hit a brace.
Picadore B scored their biggest win of the season: 9-1 against bottom-placed side Whitby Resolution. Picadore’s Stephen Atkinson and Nigel Chandley both cantered to trebles. Karl Cousins competed in two five-game epics, narrowly beating Ken Benford in one and losing to Stuart Hurworth in the other for Picadore’s only dropped point.
The remaining Division Two matches ended as ties. It was a long night in Ryedale as Sports Club hosted Hobnobs B, with half of the evening’s encounters needing five games to settle the outcome. Four other games went to four. Ryedale’s Mick Carter was the busiest player, beating Ann Seery and Trevor Teasdale in five and losing out to Allan Thurling 11-7, 11-8, 5-11, 6-11, 6-11.
Eastfield Warriors took a highly competitive doubles match to salvage a draw with Picadore A. Eastfield’s Guy Whiting again earned a player of the match award but was made to work for it in a tight game with an in-form Martin Zammit. Johnny Csordas defeated Eastfield’s Karine Piham in the match of the night. The left-hander prevailed 14-12 in the final game.
There were a number of firsts in Eastfield Fusion’s encounter with Liberators Northside in Scarborough Flooring Division Three. The match saw the first league appearance of Northside’s promising youngster Mia Longman, and the first league victory of the season for league newcomer Callum Seastron for what proved to be Fusion’s first win of the season, 6-4. Richard Lear (3) and Jaik Herrington (2) completed Fusion’s scoring.
Elsewhere in Division Three Liberators Southside remained unbeaten following a 7-3 defeat of Rogues and Joshers. Rogues’ Simon Boddy took the game to Southside with two victories in his singles matches and a doubles win with Dominic Grunwell. However, he was unable to challenge Nigel Escreet who won all of his singles. Steve Miller and John Farrell chipped in with two wins each to cement Southside’s lead at the top.
Delphstone and Desperatum both turned up a player short resulting in a 5-4 Delphstone win once forfeits were taken into account. Steven Davies took the division’s top player, Jonathan Wanless to a fifth set, before falling 11-7 to Delphstone’s number one.
All of the matches in Scarborough Flooring Division One went according to form with Corinthians and Rolo continuing to battle it out for top spot. Rolo kept their one point lead following a 7-3 defeat of Hackness B. Martin Lowe led the way with three wins for Rolo, supported by son Sam (two wins) with one win for Moke Warburton. Warburton combined with Lowe senior for a doubles win over Derek Elliott and Peter Kirk that went to the final end. Kirk proved Hackness’ best player on the night with two wins.
Corinthians equalled Rolo’s 7-3 with a win over James Builders. Simon James proved his class with three wins but supporting players Mike Fenby and Julian James were no match for Corinthians’ Mark Marshall, Glenn Hodgson and Dale Symons.
Scalby Old Boys continued their good form with a draw against Nomads. Both teams’ number ones were in fine form: Nomad Gary Connolly managed a treble, while Scalby’s Matty Whilde bagged a brace. Following a brace for Nomads’ John Loftus, Scalby were left needing to take the doubles to level. Whilde and Matthew Rutt eventually got there, with a 9-11 in the final end.
