Lyndon Cheetham, Ben Peach, Steve Gaylor, Magnus Lemprecht, Jon Shepherd
Nathan Quilliam, Liam Davies, Mark Henson, Pat Russell, Stuart Highy
Both sides containing players of a league quality saw some close match ups despite the overall score.
Mark Henson had many chances to claim victory vs Steve Gaylor but early season rustiness cost him with too many unforced errors.
Both Liam and Nathan took the first game at 3 & 1 before falling to 3-1 defeats to Ben and Lyndon who both have been on great form since last week to fly up the rankings from the mid twenties to mid teens – long may their form continue!
League newcomer Magnus fell 1 behind but squeezed the second 15-14 to then run out 3-1 winner.
Finally, Jon ran out comfortable winner vs Stuart at 5 in a thoroughly enjoyable match with some lung busting rallies.
