The individual performance of the season took place in the Godalming C match against Cody A in the First Division. Godalming, with all their players boasting impressive handicaps, must have expected a whitewash but they did not count on Peter Anthony sweating his way to an incredible full house in a 7-3 win for the title favourites. All three of his wins went the distance with wins at deuce against Alan Hoyle and Tony Harrild. Fei Fei Pei succumbed a little more easily. Little damage was done for the C team as Godalming D secured a very impressive draw against Burymead C the other, near certainties, for promotion. Yawei Wang and Rob Shearman notched duos for Godalming but none of the Godalming squad could get the better of Richard Parke.
With have, in all likelihood temporary, new leaders in the Premier Division. Burymead A moved to the top thanks to a 7-3 win over Merrow A. Phil Snelson and Derek Holman picked up all the Burymead points. Godalming B have no relegation worries this season and an 8-2 success against Broadmoor places them firmly in the top half of the table. Alex Forshaw was unbeaten for Godalming with Tony Holmes and Keith falconer both only losing out to Mark Handcock. Merrow B consolidated their third spot with an 8-2 defeat of two-man Godalming A. Richard Seymour was unbeaten for Merrow with Andy Meads and Graham Faulkner both losing out to Robin Honey.
Woking LTC B moved to the top of the Second Division with a 7-3 victory over Bramley D. Bramley held the trump card in Steve Cheeseman who was unbeaten with John Koenigsberger, Ahmad Matoorian and Owen Poelijoe picking up the Woking points. Godalming E edged past Challoner C 6-4 with James Sellen unbeaten for Godalming and Neil Harden bagging a brace as did Jason Gee for Challoner. Burymead D pushed Aftermath D closer to the drop with a 7-3 win featuring a full house from Jack Harrington and a pair from Richard Green for the victors. Dave Harden won a pair for Aftermath who must be anticipating a return to the division below.
With Godalming F well out of sight in the Third Division the promotion interest centres around Aftermath E and Cranleigh A. Aftermath E shared the points with Ash C who are having their own club battle with their D team. No maximums in this match with Dave Bentall and Sandy Simpson for Ash and John Setterfield and Dave Thomas for Aftermath each winning twice. Meanwhile Cranleigh A were whitewashing College Hill D. Peter Coventry, Angela Coventry and Mark Lockyer pushing the Cranleigh outfit to within a point of Aftermath.
Cody B will be pleased with their 9-1 win over Godalming K in the Fourth Division. Stuart Stone and Ken Thompson picked up hattricks whilst Mick Strode only lost out to Saj Swamy. The win puts Cody within sight of Godalming H who were held by their M team. Ben Tahouri was unbeaten for the M team with David Livingstone and Shula Laws each winning twice for the H team. Emmanuael TTC notched a rare win with a 6-4 success over Burymead E. Clive Mattin was unbeaten for Emmanuel with Stephen Schofield winning twice as did Simon Parris for Burymead.
