NATHAN Calton showed his potential in winning all three of his matches as Budmouth A took a 23-11 win over Park District X in Division One.

Teammates Moses Lewis (6) and Josh Clark (7) both won two of their matches but were unable to get past Park’s John Ryan (7).

Calton dropped the third leg to Ryan but completed the win 11-7 in the fourth.

In a busy week for Park District X, where they played three matches, they next faced YMCA but could only muster two players on this occasion.

Despite their numerical disadvantage, they put up a good fight but eventually went down 19-14.

Ryan did manage to win all his matches this time round and also the doubles with Alec Brown.

The other two points came via Brown’s 3-2 loss to Steve White (6), which could have been so much better had he converted his two-set advantage.

Their last match of the week was against their A team but the same numerical disadvantage proved much more difficult to overcome in a 26-9 loss.

Again Ryan won all three of his matches including two five setters against Ray Cody (8) and Richard Willshere (8) to top off a good week personally but that was all they could muster.

Budmouth A’s second match of the week saw them take on Colliton X.

They consolidated their lead at the top of the division with a resounding 30-3 demolition job.

Clark, Will Jolliffe and Lewis all scored maximums, with the only points for Colliton X coming from Mick Hogan (1), Andy Crouch (1) and a point from the doubles.

Park A’s second match of the week saw them in business-like form against Preston B who had to call on Peter Stopforth (1) to play up at the last moment.

Stopforth played well, despite already being injured, and took a leg off Mike Doyle (8).

Miranda Edwardes (5) had a good evening getting two legs off Richard Wilshire (9) and then gaining the upper hand in a real 3-2 tussle with Doyle.

Meanwhile, Ray Cody (9) continued in his usual concentrated fashion on the way to a 29-6 win.

Eddie Chapman’s maximum ensured a close victory for Preston A over the girls of Budmouth E in Division Two.

Edith Dedman (7) gave him a stern test losing 11-9 in the fifth.

Ashleigh Browne (6), playing up from Division Three, took a leg off him but his consistency eventually saw him through.

Derek Shilliday (7) backed Chapman up well beating both Dedman and Ashleigh Browne in five legs but Jaimee Browne (6) evened things up for the family by beating Shilliday in four legs.

With the score 19-19 at the end of the singles matches Preston just shaved the doubles to secure a 22-19 win.

Shipton Gorge C came out on top 22-14 against Colliton C but Colliton’s Andy Ray top scored on the night with a maximum nine.

Peter Loakes (3) picked up Colliton’s other win on the night with a five-set victory over Dave Poole (6).

However, with Dan Corren attaining seven legs and Tom Baldry six, Shipton were too consistent and ran out winners.

In Division Three, William Roper, Cozette Edwards and Anne Cruickshank all scored one win each but it was not enough as Park District Y lost to Springfield D 23-9.

Springfield’s Ken Winship and David Moth both scored maximums without losing a leg.

A hard-fought match saw the Budmouth D boys eventually beat Wyke C 26-11 thanks to a George Ackerley maximum, although Tom Hepburn (4) took him to five legs.

Roger Winstanley and Stan Smith both secured maximums as Preston D had a fairly comfortable 27-8 win over Wyke B.
