Cricketers Arms’ A team won 6-3 in the Section 3 clash with their B-string.

Mark Stimpson, Chris Myers, Mick Woodley and Martin Andrews got them off to a dream start.

The B team hit back through Steve James and Alan Hunter, but they lost the pairs 2-1 as the A team stayed top.

In the ladies’ section, Florence Park Community Centre C came from 2-1 down to win 6-3 at home to TJ’s Club A.

Shaz Thompson and Jayne Godfrey had got the visitors off to a good start.
