Terrific Town top the table after whitewash

Have your say

Sizzling Spalding Town A romped to a 10-0 triumph at Royal Mail Cart as they continued their near-perfect start to the EBA Section Four Club Championship campaign.

The Group A aces now boast 29 points from an available 30 after their third win from as many games – and top the early standings despite playing a game less than their nearest rivals.

The match was much closer than the whitewash score suggests, with the clearest rink win coming from J Philpott, B Davis, G Chappell and N Wing (15-9).

Whaplode Drove sit second after a 10-0 win of their own. They crushed Consti in a much more one-sided affair, with D Mann, E Moore, M Parkin and J Ivatt amassing a big 23-8 rink return.

They are now level pegging with Carter’s Park in joint second, following the Holbeach sides’ 9-1 away success at Bourne Town.

With one of the three sets drawing, the the other two romped to big victories – the best of which saw R Flowers, B Mills, G Palmer and A Dunham prevail 30-7.

Ayscoughfee are fourth having got the better of Donington 8-2. Two sets put in big performances, the best of which seeing Chris Mycock, Ashley Caress, D Turner and N Cherry emerge as 21-11 winners.

In Group B, Gosberton jumped to the top of the embryonic standings with a big 10-0 success at home to Long Sutton.

The unbeaten-side bagged a whopping 75 shots, with 29 of them coming from R Clayton, M Lunn, M Greet and G Wilson.

Holbeach USC are hot on their heels after edging out Deepings 6-4 in the closest game of the week. Hosts Deepings won on two rinks, but a big 23-10 return from D Eccleston, L Curtis, K Steward and G Ward tipped the aggregate scores 54-53 in their favour.

In Triples A, Castle A are two points clear following their 10-0 win at Moulton Harrox A. Some 22 of their 60 shots came from top trio J McGroarty, B Benton and P Godding.

Triples B is topped by Ayscoughfee, who picked up an impressive 8-2 (42-39) victory at high-flying Castle B. In a very tight game, the 15-14 win from Ken Kirton, D Turner and J Wells proved to be key.
