Vice-captain Keith Walton said they were “very pleased with the win, especially after dropping only one game after the first four against a team who are showing signs of getting some of their old form back.” Mike Beer continued his remarkable run after only losing the opening game of the season, although he has missed three games, with the best win of the night 7. Phil Emery and Russ Pegram were the best for Newport both winning 15. The Bayley continued their pursuit of the Fields but are now 8 points behind them, despite Gordon Hawkins’ best card of 8.

St Georges’ best card was Carl Hazlehurst 9 as they maintained their 5th place. Hanmer beat Bowring 10-4 which has seem them move 10 points clear now of bottom spot. Skipper Dave Ellison led the way winning 4 while opposition captain Jamie King was best for them winning 11. Wem failed to move off bottom place as they only beat Burway 8-6 in a great result for the Ludlow side. They couldn’t quite win the aggregate after Mike Dulson won 3 and Chris Brettell 2 but Kiah Roberts’ 10 card helped them to a good away result which keeps them on the fringes of the top half. Ifton are three points ahead of Wem after getting 4 at Meole Brace, a good result in the end after gaining 3 out of the back 4 led by Nicky Jones’ 9 card. Will Tarrell was best for Meole who are three behind Newport in 3rd. Chester Road are just 12 ahead of Wem after only beating Hanwood 9-5 at home in a result which keeps Hanwood right in the mix for a top 5 spot.
