Dockree in fine form

THE Sonning Common and Peppard E team suffered mixed fortunes in cup competitions last week.

THE Sonning Common and Peppard E team suffered mixed fortunes in cup competitions last week.

An expected win in the Fifth and Lower Knockout Cup failed to materialise as Tidmarsh E ran out 6-3 winners despite Sonning Common and Peppard having beaten them in both league matches 8-1 and 9-1.

However, in the Team Handicap Cup the E side beat first division Our Lady of Peace B. Danny Dockree played first, starting 12-0 up against John Millward. Dockree started well by winning points before Division 1 player Millward hit back with some impressive shots. Dockree fought back and ended up winning the first set in two straight games, 21-13, 21-17. Michael Legg and Jim McClure also beat Millward to clinch the match win.

On the Reading and District League front the B team lost 9-1 at Our Lady of Peace B in their rearranged match, Keith Swain maintaining his good form by earning a win against Daniel McTiernan.
