Hadley hand out whitewash

Jamie King’s side had all eight winners as the 10-0 (168-101) win kept them in third spot, just two points behind second-placed Moor Lane A.

Dave Lloyd enjoyed a big 21-4 victory over Mark Fowler to claim his side’s MVP.

But things could have been different, with Robert Fuller and Aaron King winning tight games to 20 and Chris Worthington edging a 21-19 match.

Wrockwardine Wood were another side to enjoy a big home victory as they brushed aside Broomfield 8-2 (148-101) in Feeder A.

The Wrockites enjoyed plenty of big wins, with Martin Williams claiming the MVP for his 21-6 victory over James Gugmore.

Skipper Martin Gaut said: “It was a very good win against a side near the bottom of the table.

“We finished in mid-table last year and we might not do as well this year, but that is our aim. To have four single figure winners was pleasing and that helped us to a big aggregate win.”

Gaut is hoping his side can build on the win when the sides meet again next Monday in the reverse fixture.


“If we can get three winners then I will be very happy,” he added.

“You don’t really expect to win away bit you want to do better than they did. They got two winners at our place so we will look to beat that. And if we get a win then that will be a great bonus.”

St Georges are in a Premier League relegation battle as they went down 8-2 (163-126) at Tanworth in Arden. Colin Beaman and Lewis Scott were the visitors’ winners in a result which leaves the 2016 champions one place off the bottom but having played a game more than bottom club Willenhall Nordley A.

Castlefields had a 6-4 (150-130) win against West Brom FSC in a contest where both sides had four winners.

Skipper Mark Taylor said: “We were a little bit disappointed with the result, we didn’t play as well as we would have hoped but getting the win was the main thing.

“Nicky Jones had an excellent 21-14 win over Greg Smith to carry on his good form of late.”
