HUNNYS HEROES WIN PUTS THEM SIX POINTS CLEAR AT THE TOP
AND BIG WIN FOR SEDGEFORD SAVAGES MOVE THEM INTO THIRD SPOT

The clash of the 'Big Two'  Bt Victory and Hunnys Heroes lived up to all expectations with some outstanding games. However it ended with Bt without the Victory and Hunnys finished up the Heroes. It started in good time but although only nine games in the new 'Special' format it was a late finish in the Public Hall at Heacham on Monday evening. Defending champions Hunnys Heroes went into the match leading the BT Victory by just one point so it was all to play for. The new 'special' format starts with three doubles followed by three singles (in ranking order) then a final three doubles. Four five enders and two four enders followed. For the Heroes it was their regular trio of Rob and Tom Yarrow and Graham Keeley. For Victory regulars Mary-Ann Woodhouse and Steve Hales and they were joined by David Howell. First up for the Heroes Graham and Tom taking on Steve and David and it was first blood to the Heroes in four ends. Back came Victory with a five end win when Mary-Ann and David beat Rob and Tom. So it was all square. The third doubles went to the Heroes when Rob and Graham beat Mary-Ann and Steve. Then we had the singles first Tom beating David in three close ends 12-10, 11-9 and 11-9. Two epic five enders followed first Rob edged home against Steve so the score was 4-1 in favour of the Heroes. Then we had the game of the night  between the two unbeaten players in the league Graham and Mary-Ann. The first end was just something you don't see very often and it had everything, attacking shots, defending shots and long long rallies and it was Graham who edged home 12-10, he then also won the second end 11-8. End three had Graham defending from the back of the hall and at one stage played two shots back while being flat out on the floor. A few seconds after this long rally Mary-Ann noticed her red rubber was flapping and so was not  in a fit state to continue. Fortunately she had a spare in her bag and after a brief knock up continued the end and managed to win 11-9. The fight back continued in end four with her winning 6-11. So it went down to a decider and it was Mary-Ann who came out on top to keep her 100% record and with it close the gap to  4-2 to the Heroes. Three more doubles followed including a four and five ender but it was the defending champions who managed to win them all and with it a 7-2 win to take them six points clear at the top. The teams will meet twice more in two different formats, the Normal and challenge, I look forward to both matches.


On the same evening at the other end of the hall it was our third friendly match of the season where we are trying to encourage new players of all ages plus giving regular players the chance to improve with no pressure of league points and averages being affected. The friendly Super Subs are always one team and this time their team was Eileen Needham, Alfie Yarrow and Mike Cooper and they were up against Spivs Specials team of Tim Race and two Specials team players but now super subs Jeff Race and Chris Griggs. Playing the same new 'Special' format of six doubles and three singles. Not the drama that was happening on table one, plus it finished much earlier. Plenty of five enders and with everyone enjoying this new format and the friendly chat the match finished up with a 5-4 win for the Specials.

Wednesday evening in Sedgeford Village Hall it was dark horses Sedgeford Savages up against Ringstead Raiders. Ian Rix, John Marrow and Kerry Smith showed no mercy when they beat the Raiders trio of Roger Pincott, Paul Humeniuk and Stephen Stafford 8-1 in the 'Special' format. The Savages took control from the start winning the first three doubles then all three singles. However in game 7 it was the first of the five enders when Paul and Stephen had a real tussle against John and Kerry finally edging home 12-10. 11-13, 11-9, 9-11 & 9-11 you cannot get much closer than that. In game 8 another epic encounter when Ian and Kerry just held off Roger and Paul to win 14-12, 11-13, 11-4, 10-12 & 12-10. Final result an 8-1 win for the Savages and they move up the table sitting nicely in third place.


NEXT WEEKS MATCHES W/C MONDAY 30TH OCTOBER 2017 (2 PLAYER LEAGUE)

Monday 30th October in Heacham Public Hall all 8 teams playing 2 matches each during the evening.

We will start setting up at 6.30pm ready for a start as close to 7.15pm as possible. Once again it would be appreciated if possible for some players to get there early to help in the setting up. Also it is imperative all teams turn up plus help in clearing up after the matches. Thanking you in advance for your help.


To play in the Heacham League all you need to do is be TTE registered. If any player is looking for a game please get in touch. Once again we are looking for 'Super Subs'. So what is a Super Sub? They are players who play in other TTE affiliated leagues but would like an extra match or two or more during the season. There is no cost to be a Super Sub as long as you are TTE registered. There is no commitment on your part, if a team is short of a player they will have a list of Super Subs and contact details. They will contact you asking if you can help out and it is your choice to say if you are available or not.
