League 4

 

Citywing Vikings B 247 Microgaming Marown C 135

 

Another straight-froward win, for a strong Vikings, sees them remain unbeaten at the top of the league.  The first two ties went Vikings way and saw them comfortably over the thirty point barrier.  The middle two ties saw Vikings biggest win when Mark Falconer and Neil Brew beat Paul Coppell and James Smith 21/7 21/66.  The final two ties again went Vikings way, but they did drop their first points to Marown, when Alex Townell &  Falconer beat Joe Garrity & Coppell 21/9 16/21. Marown continue to languish at the bottom of the league, while Vikings look towards promotion.  With Fencibles B also doing well in this league, we'll have to wait for the final fixture before we know who will win promotion.  MF
