The last unbeaten record in the Fourth Division was taken when Cranleigh B overcame Godalming H, 8-2. Godalming were not helped by an injury to David Livingstone but Chris Ray was undefeated for Cranleigh with Russell Amer grabbing a brace as did Shula Laws for Godalming. Two teams that I expect to feature at the end of the season, Woking LTC D and Cody B met with Cody securing a 7-3 win. None of the Cody players, Mick Strode, Norrie Short and Bob Fenner could beat Malcolm Hollett who garnered all the Woking points.
In the Third Division Godalming G did themselves a huge favour by defeating fellow relegation strugglers, College Hill D 8-2. Peter Cousins was unbeaten with James Wyncoll and Hugh McKee each being beaten by Paul Tanton. College Hill E kept themselves just ahead of their clubmates by only losing 7-3 against promotion contenders, Aftermath E. Derek Hubbard got all the College Hill points with Alan Sherwin, Jim Roberts and Dave Thomas notching duos for Aftermath. Godalming F continue to justify the favourites tag after a comfortable 7-3 win over Merrow G. Danny McGranaghan and Gordon Grover notched all the Godalming points.
In the Second Division Challoner C may well be regretting their promotion after another heavy defeat, 9-1, against Merrow F. Scott Gotham and Paul Farrant being unbeaten for Merrow with Jason Gee grabbing the consolation point against Simon Dickinson. Aftermath D are also in deep trouble and an 8-2 loss at the hands of College Hill C makes the picture more dire. Gary Adkins won the points for Aftermath but he could not get the better of Jim Clement with Mike Caudrey and Brian Smithers getting the other College Hill points. Bramley C showed little mercy to their D team colleagues running out 7-3 victors. Linda Makepeace was undefeated with Bill Willson notching a brace as did Steve Cheeseman for the D team who will be concerned about their position at the wrong end of the table.
With the bottom of the First Division being so congested Woking LTC A will be grateful for their 7-3 win over Bramley B. John Koenigsberger picked up a full house with Kevin Bown bagging a brace, this being matched by Geoff Nevitt for Bramley. Burymead C continue imperiously at the top. Their latest success being an 8-2 win over Aftermath B. Mark Batt-Rawden and Joel Clancy were undefeated for Burymead.
In the Premier Division there is the unusual sight of Merrow A towards the bottom of the table. Their C team displayed no sympathy in their plight by getting the better of them 9-1. Andy Mudie and Steve French were unbeaten with Micky Lang only losing out to Martin Townshend. Godalming B eased up the table with a 7-3 success over College Hill A. Alex Forshaw notched a maximum for Godalming with Sara Horsnell and Keith Falconer winning twice apiece as did Jorge Dominguez.
All teams are reminded that any outstanding matches from the first half of the season must be played before the commencement of the second half programme.
