They did it in style with a 10-0 win over Framingham Gull. There were no problems for Aaron Hacon, Colin Westney and Jason Peck, although Jason was taken to a third leg in two of his three matches.

The Hales Gnats team of David Flatt, Matt Howes and Gordon Howes also had a 10-0 win over Framingham Nutters. David dropped a leg to Tom Herne, but Gnats came through otherwise unscathed.

The tightest match of the week was at the Woodton King's Head where Magpies sneaked a 6-4 victory over Hales Eagles. David Constable won all three of his matches for the Eagles, including third leg victories over Barry Fortune and Alf Stubbs.
