Our 4th team won their 7th match in a row, beating promotion rivals WN 3 4-1. They were without Mick ‘n’ Mags but were able to call upon Steve and Gary who won their games. Graham and Derek also won, with just John losing. They are now 6 points clear of 3rd place and need just 3 more points from their remaining 3 matches to finish in the top two in division 4.
In division 1, both teams suffered important losses. The 1st team lost 3-2 at Mansfield. They now need Grantham 1 to drop points somewhere. The 2nd team lost their ‘4 pointer’ 3-2 v Ashfield 1, who have gone a point ahead of our second team after Uni 1 defaulted to them and now look strong favourites to stay up.
After three losses our 3rd team finally got a win, against bottom placed Nom 2, but are too far behind the leaders to challenge for promotion. Our 5th team were beaten 4-0 by division 5 leaders Ashfield 4 but are still in a 4-way battle for 2nd place.
