Clubmates Bugbrooke C (320) and Bugbrooke D (292) played their match early. Both teams currently prop up Divisions Two and Three respectively and it was the C team who perhaps played with a little more freedom overall against the lower ranked ladies. Nevertheless, at the halfway stage just ten points separated the teams. Gary Frost and David Knight both received a positive handicap versus D team captain Liz Davison but the net scores evened out exactly. Liz then received eight points versus C team captain Neil Osborne and to Liz' credit she won two of the three games for a six point swing against handicap. This success was nullified however as Gary and David both racked up points versus Bev Hyde and Sue Gibbons (including an ungallant 11-0 result Gary v Sue in the final singles.) The doubles provided one final flourish for the ladies who received a six points per game positive handicap and achieved a nine point overall swing but it is the guys who go through to play either Gayton A or Towcester A in the Semi Finals in March.
