SHIPLAKE’S hopes of survival in Division 2 of the Oxfordshire League are now out of their hands after they went down to a three rinks to one defeat at SOUTH OXFORD A on Thursday of last week.
Going into the game Shiplake needed to pick up at least three points from the match otherwise it would be in Chipping Norton’s hands who have a game in hand. As it was Shiplake picked up just one point to the hosts’ five.

Tony Reid managed to ensure his side dominated much of his match and came away with Shiplake’s only win of the match, 23-9. Meanwhile Dave Webb’s side put in a good performance to keep in contention only to see his side pipped on the very last end, by the South Oxford skip, Mobley, playing on to Shiplake’s the shot wood to hold and secure the end and rink 14-12. With Chipping Norton securing four points the same evening, they just need four points from their last match away against relegated Hanborough to go above and send Shiplake into Division 3 next season.
