Steve Bolton of Ashorne in action against Kannan Nithi of Stratford Capulets.

Debbie Barrow and Kannan Nithi led Capulets to a 15-0 victory over Ashorne, although the score did not reflect the efforts of Andy Coonan and Steve Bolton’s villagers with the latter clashing with Nithi producing a streak of longs. exchanges which highlighted the defensive qualities of the two players.

Graham Poole made his first appearance of the season alongside Gary Stewart as Shottery claimed his third win without conceding a game against Stratford Othellos.

It couldn’t have been a more difficult start for former FISSC player Tony Jackson who made a welcome return to the league after a 30-year absence.

Also enjoying a 15-0 success were by Snitterfield John Price and Phil Paine who took Stratford Prosperos, for whom Jonathon Mason made his league debut.

Piotr Penczkowski conducted Eagles of Stratford to a 10-7 win over Stratford Hamlets with a splint in straight series.

He then teamed up with Piotr Lewczuk to clinch the most important doubles, while Ian Nash and Barry Fulford each recorded a victory for the Hamlets.

In another ‘local derby’, Steve Proctor won both of his matches when The Romeos of Stratford defeated Stratford Montagues 14-4.

However, he had to put aside an early disadvantage before defeating Kevin Taylor in four sets, but his opponent quickly turned the situation around to inflict the first loss of the campaign on Montagues captain Nello Mauri.

Taylor got his first match, only for Mauri to win the next two ends, before eventually taking the top honors in the only competition to go the full distance.

FISSC and Henley fought which, under the new scoring system, will be a rare outcome as they finished tied at 9-9.

The end result depended on the closing doubles where alternate sets were traded before Payne and newcomer Gary Griffin snatched the fifth to win a hard-fought share of the loot.
