Hanwood beat Ifton by 10 overall
Hanwood started their defence successfully as they beat Ifton by 10 overall, but it wasn’t all plain sailing. Spokesman Ash Wellings admits it was a “bit of a scare in the end having had a good first three at home and away we had two bad losers away where they were ahead of us. At Hanwood, we had a couple of us struggling on the green with me 13-12 down and Ryan Bond beating Jon Mansell (only winner 17). But I ended up running out and with Dave Burton winning well at 4 (best winner 10) we had a good win by 34 considering the two bad cards away.” Ifton’s best winner was Leighton Roberts 4 at home, with Phil Lyttle’s 11 win being crucial to hold them to 24.

Castlefields beat St Georges by 39 overall
Castlefields beat St Georges comfortably by 39 overall. Stand in skipper Graham Rogers commented “well I did say it was a cup game and any thing can happen, as it was it was a comfortable win for us in the end with a 35 margin at home and a good solid win on St Georges by our experienced away team doing the business. We had three players missing due to other commitments but I must make a special mention to the players that came in from our strong Tanners team and played very well. I think the pace of our green caught them out as it was a lot quicker from when they visited a few weeks ago there was some cracking games on the night. The Luke Jones and Dave King game was best game of the night. All in all we are very happy to progress to the next round but we will be fully focused on our next league game against Meole Brace tomorrow night before we start preparing for the next round!” The Fields had all 6 winners at home, Callum their best 10, while at St Georges Keith Walton won 14 and for the Dragons it was Lewis Scott 11 who was best winner.
