CROWN B Ladies are enjoying a very good season in the Tuesday League and their latest victory, 6-3 against Wellington Ladies, was an excellent performance.
Diane Lock won three out of three, but it is a very surprised Lesley Smith who finds herself at number eight in the Hit Squad after defeating Derbyshire representative star Wendy Wignall.
In Division One, Joiners A have not lost since their shock defeat by Doveside A on the opening week of the season.
They have won two out of two twice in the last two weeks, winning all four matches and defeating champions Rileys B in the bargain.
They are playing superbly, with Brett Bailey at number two in the Super Hit Squad, while Wayne Shipley and Paul Eaton are holding top seven spots in the Division One Hit Squad.
It is five wins in a row for Shipley, six in a row for Eaton and eight out of eight for Bailey.
On this form, Rileys’ tremendous run of championships may finally be ended, or will it?
Doveside A and Wellington A have both gone through bad patches this season but things are now looking up for both sides.
Dave Margett, number three in the Hit Squad, won both of his singles as Doveside came from 2-0 down to defeat the well-fancied Mount Pleasant 6-3.
The Wellie stuck the boot in again after their excellent 9-0 show the previous week.
It was Royal Oak D that got a right beating this time as the Wellie won 8-1, dropping just one frame in their last two matches.
In Division Two, The Spread Eagle have soared into a two-point lead and completely destroyed previous leaders the Wyggeston.
The Wyggy were so upset, players have threatened to quit, so if anyone is looking to play they should contact skipper Andy Thomas on 07717 765833.
Joiners B, in second place, also got the shock of their lives. Despite being in tremendous form.
They went to bottom side New Inn A Stapenhill and were well and truly trounced, losing the match after just six frames.
The win has enabled Crown D to escape the clutches of the relegation zone.
In Division Three, the Drum & Monkey still hold top spot but got a drubbing from second-placed Royal Oak B.
With the Gate winning 7-2, three teams are level on points in top spot.
An excellent 7-2 win for Dart C puts them close up in fifth position and their star lady, Tracy Newman, still leads the way in the Hit Squad.
THERE are just nine survivors in this season’s Super Hit Squad battle, with the three clear leaders Dave Fernandez, of Rileys B, on nine, Brett Bailey, of Joiners A, on eight and Hammad Lateef, of Coopers A, on six.
