I will begin this week with a look at the new Singles League which started with an epic game and also some big score lines in four of the games. The epic battle was between Edward Carlyle and Muriel Cain with Edward taking a good lead in the opening ends but Muriel fought back to make it 11-11 after 11 of the 14 ends and then with one end left Muriel was 13-12 down but not out as she scored a two on the last end to win 14-13. In the remaining games Paul Cowley beat Win Kewley 19-5, Michelle Cowley beat Rob Matthews 12-10, Pauline Cowley lost 4-23 to Gary Lenton, Mike Moyer lost 6-23 to David Quayle and in the final game, John Kewley beat Mike Ashmole 17-6.

In the Premier Pairs GLS beat Young Guns 3-1, Cheesemakers beat Villains 4-0 while newly promoted Villa Boys played well to beat Tee Pegs 4-0 and in the remaining game of the night we saw Dragons beat Radical Heads 4-0.

The Tuesday Morning League saw a shock result as new team Jacks on a Roll played exceptionally well to beat reigning Champions Villans 4-2, Thru the Gap beat Cushags 5-1 and Hillbillies beat Ramsey Raiders 4-2.
