First published in Sport

Holders Oxford A were knocked out of the Inter Area Cup with a 6-4 aggregate defeat by Wallingford C, writes PETE EWINS.

Trailing 4-1 from the away leg, Oxford took the return match 3-2 to no avail.

DIDCOT Conservative Club bounced back from last week’s home defeat to win 4-2 at West Oxford Democrats Club in Group A of the Oxford Summer League.

Oxford-based Jenny Florey (5,220) and Sue Atkins (5,370) put Didcot 2-0 up, before Terry Green (7,590) pulled one back.

Florey (5,330) restored Didcot’s two-game cushion, only for John Patey (9,120, break 8,960) to keep Democrats in contention.

But Dave Tooke took the last game to take Didcot two points clear at the top.

Vikings Club are in second place after a 4-2 home success against Masons.

With the match poised at 2-2, Bob Allsworth and Mike Jones (10,280) won the last two games for Vikings.
