Unfortunately on the same night Simon lost his 1st round Unbadged Singles match. Richings Park also did well in their first league game against Court Park winning 31-23 with Bob Doddington's team coming back from 1-8 down to win 14-11.

Bob Doddington and Gary Masters did well in their pairs match on Friday in what has been described as a very nail biting game coming down to the wire in the last end with Bob and Gary winning by one shot. Well done guys!

Stephen then had his 2nd round Unbadged Singles match today (postponed from Thursday due to rain). Again he was playing away, this time at Gerrards Cross against David Hall and again this was another nail biter of a match. Stephen was leading 14-7 at one point and then lost the jack to his opponement who then made a great comeback. The score then levelled at 19-19 and then Stephen won the next two ends with one shot on each winning his match 21-19. He will be playing his third round match on Monday against C Farrar at Denham.
