The first cup final has been decided with Burymead easily overcoming Merrow B in the Veteran’s Cup final 5-0. Phil Snelson, Richard Tanner and Gordon Holmes were the winning team.
Cody B took the opportunity to ease towards the leaders in the Fourth Division with an 8-2 success over Burymead E. Norrie Short was unbeaten with Mick Strode and John Asprey only succumbing to Simon Parris.
There is a little sub battle going on in the Premier Division between the Merrow teams for club supremacy. The B and C teams maintained the status quo with a draw in which Andy Mudie excelled for the C team. Andy Meads and Graham Faulkner each bagged braces for the B team. Michael Hill, playing only his second match of the season, notched an impressive full house against Challoner A. Richard Tanner and Chris Bush each recorded two wins but neither could get the better of Rob lemon in an 8-2 win. It is looking very serious for the bottom two with Challoner B losing 7-3 to Broadmoor for whom Mark Handcock and Clive Banham picked up all the points. Merrow D also lost 7-3, in their case to Burymead A. Gordon Holmes was unbeaten for Burymead with Phil Snelson bagging a brace as did Dave Phelps for the relegation threatened Merrow D.
It appears as if there will be another dogfight at the bottom end of the First Division. Bramley A just eased past Cody A 6-4 but Paul Shakespeare, for Cody, was the star performer with a full house. Nick Gould and Tony Morse each managed duos. Woking LTC A will be disappointed with a 7-3 loss against Aftermath B although Kevin Bown did his part with a trio for Woking. Gordon Aplin, Frank Roberts and Bill Matlock were too strong for the other Woking players.
Each of the leaders in the Second Division whitewashed their relegation threatened opposition. Ash B got the better of Bramley D with Alan Gess, Mike Levey and Martin Gilbey proving too strong for this division. Meanwhile Woking LTC C meted out the same punishment to Aftermath D. Daniel Koenigsberger, Ahmad Matoorian and Owen Poelijoe the victorious trio.
The transfer of Juri Artamanov reaped instant dividends in the Third Division when Woking LTC C overcame Cranleigh A 7-3. Artamanov won twice but the hattrick hero for Woking was Brian Hartles. Mark Lockyer won twice for Cranleigh. Merrow G notched a very impressive 8-2 win over Ash C. Carole Ingram was undefeated for Merrow with Ashley Barnes and David Lush winning twice as did David Mackinnon for the opposition. Although they lost 7-3 College Hill D will be pleased with the result against the heavy favourites for the division, Godalming F. No player was unbeaten with doubles for all the Godalming players, Fred Florance, Danny McGranagham and Gordon Grover and also a duo for Peter Tanton for College Hill.
