Castlefields down after last-day loss

Castlefields suffered last-day agony as their two-year stay in the Summit Premier League came to an end.

Castlefields suffered last-day agony

The Shrewsbury side headed to Chadsmoor A for their final game of the season knowing three winners would be enough to send the hosts down.

But it was Chadsmoor who clinched a 162-105 success with six of the eight winners that means they live to fight another day in a promotion/relegation play-off.

And to add to the anguish for Mark Taylor’s side, without star men Callum Wraight and Leighton Roberts – both playing at the Isle of Man festival, Andy Duckett lost his game to Allan Parsons 21-20.

But in the end it was poor home form throughout the season that proved costly, particularly the fact that Chadsmoor picked four winners in the reverse fixture at Castlefields a fortnight ago.

Defending champions St Georges ended the season safe, two points ahead of Chadsmoor, after finishing with a 164-149 win at home to West Brom FSC.

The Telford side enjoyed five winners, with the three defeats by just a combined four points. Colin Beaman, a 21-16 winner, picked up the MVP.

Wrockwardine Wood finished their Summit Feeder A season on a high with back-to-back victories.

After beating Heath Hayes 160-118 last Wednesday, the Wrockites were 141-120 winners over Royal Oak.


The home side had five winners, but it was convincing single-figure victories for Joshua Cotton, John Clarke and Tony Garmson that proved decisive.

A terrific performance from Hadley USC saw them share eight winners in their final match of the season when they went to Summit Feeder B table-toppers M&B Cheslyn Hay.

Ayden Smith picked up the MVP for his 21-9 win over Steve Davis.

But there were also successes in the 147-129 defeat for Sam Millward, Aaron King and Chris Worthington as Hadley ended comfortably in mid table.
