The 3rds are also unbeaten this season, recording three victories in the last two weeks. The team of John Holmes, David Addison, Russell Hollingshead and Doug Higgins won 6-2 against David Lloyd 4ths. This was followed by a 7-1 victory against Comberton 1sts – the players were Mike Fellingham, Erwin Phillips, Higgins and Holmes.

The team of Phillips, Ross Agnew, Addison and Hollingshead then beat Saffron Walden 7 - 1. The team remains top of Division Eight and with just two matches remaining.
