JASON ROBERTS scored a treble as he maintained his good recent form for Sonning Common and Peppard A in Division

JASON ROBERTS scored a treble as he maintained his good recent form for Sonning Common and Peppard A in Division 1 of the Reading and District League.

The treble wasn’t enough to bring his side a much needed point as Reading YMCA ran out 6-4 winners on the night.

A good doubles display from Brian Meheux and Nigel Maltby was all the B team had to show for their efforts at fifth placed Tidmarsh A. Meheux and Matlby defeated Duncan Groves and Sam Ricks 5-11, 11-9, 11-9, 11-9 where they eventually lost the match 9-1. Jeremy Willis narowly lost out to Tony Brown.

In Division 2 the C team edged further towards mid table safety after beating a two man Wokingham B side 6-4, Matt Stone winning both his matches while Tim Raby managed a vital single.

In Division 3 the D team fought back from 3-0 down to win 6-4 at Sonning Sports A, Derek Wavell, Alan Mollett and Anthony Reeve all winning twice. The E team slipped to an 8-2 defeat against Kingfisher J in Division 4 while the F team lost 6-4 to Springfield B in the same division. A Phil Turton treble and two good wins from Oliver Sayers saw the H team hold BBC Club to a 5-5 draw in their Division 5 encounter.
