EBA Section Four (Spalding area) Club Championship: A WEEK of surprise results saw new leaders in both Group A and Group B.

Spalding Town A are back at the summit of the top tier following an 8-2 win at Carter’s Park. I Bertram, P Beeken, C Searson and W Phoenix top scored with 27 shots on their rink.

Previous leaders Ayscoughfee slipped to third after a surprising home reverse against Moulton Harrox.

The quartet of M Stanley, R Hutchinson, K Ekins and R Duke starred (24-9) as Harrox prevailed 7-3.

Donington are now second after a 10-0 whitewash win over Holbeach USC A.

In the Group B, leaders Deepings were trounced 10-0 by Bourne Town – who jump up to second.

A 25-10 victory from S Hill, T Brooks, D Salmon and M Northern was the highlight.
