5:00pm Tuesday 24th December 2013 in Sport
Bocking’s 10-0 win over Elmtree Excalibur A is the first 10-0 win of the 2013-4 season in the Chelmsford top division.
Kevin Gowlett, Paul Davison and Jon Hill all recorded clean-sheets. Jon Hill opened proceedings with a fine 9-11, 11-13, 11-13, 11- 6, 11-6 win over Gary Cattermole and thereafter the Bocking side never looked back.
Rawreth impressed by beating Danbury A 7-3. Their top player Gary Young won his three singles while Chris Jacob secured an excellent five-game win over Antony Greenwood.
Danbury A fared better against Maldon A and they won 6-4 despite the fact that none of their players were able to beat Paul Sayer.
Hamish Innes won once for Maldon, a gruelling marathon of a victory : 11-8, 7- 11, 11-8, 6-11, 25-23 over Ian Whiteside. Maldon B stay top but they were only able to draw with ECC A.
Maldon’s Keiran Lally won his three singles whereas ECC’s Reuben Okai scored a very hard-fought 11-7, 9-11, 11-8, 10-12, 11-8 victory over John Cleasby. Peter Lau, returning to the ECC side after a four-year break also did well to beat Cleasby in five ends.
Elmtree Excalibur B remain the team to beat in division two and with 66 points out of 100 they are setting an impressive pace.
Their 5-5 draw against Chelmsford A wasn’t perhaps one of their best performances and it owed a lot to the improving Scott Dowsett’s trio of wins. Scott had to work hard to get the better of his Aunt- Julie Johnson 7-11, 13-11, 11-8, 11-7.
ECC C had James Hicks (21 wins out of 26) to thank as they beat Hatfield Peverel A 6-4. Hicks had to pull out all the stops to get the better of John Webber 13-11, 11-5, 14- 16, 6-11, 19-17.
Danbury C have moved into third place. Steve Buer (three wins), Graham Briggs (two wins) and Glenn Laing (two wins) were all on good form.
