The three results recorded last week in the Leicester League’s Division Two all involved Knighton Park teams with two of them on the receiving end.

Their third team lost 8-2 to Electricity III for whom Harry White recorded all three, Steve White and Chandresh Sodha two apiece. Peter Wilson and Patrick Carton grabbed one each for KP.

The Park’s four team, meanwhile was without Jack Rogers and went down 9-1 to Blaby and Whetstone when Kinar Sheth prevented the full house. For Blaby, Nick Raylor and Dave Daniel emerged undefeated with Dave Seeds picking up two.

The club’s fifth team where in a relegation zone battle with Arnesby and came out with an 8-2 success that should see them safe while sending their opponents, who were promoted last term, down again. John Underwood secured an excellent maximum for KP while Tracey Smith and Dean Jordan each won two.  Dave Wagstaffe took Arnesby’s brace.

Some good performances include an excellent maximum for Ian Lockington as he steered Wigston Conservatives to a 6-4 victory in Division Four against Electricity V, while Simon Aldis also picked up three for Knighton Park X, but this time only found enough support for a 5-5 draw against Nomads III when Kenny Obilaso notched one and these two the doubles. There were two each for Nomad’s Laszlo Kocsis and Mark Clay while Steph Burley did well to beat Alec Downes.

Great Glen’s Alex Mason is still chasing Zaheer Mahmood (lost one) at the top of the Division Three averages having lost two this season. Three against Knighton Park VI in a 5-5 draw helped but Zaheer also picked up three against Nomads as his team won 8-2, Cliff Smith and Andy Searle supporting with two each as this team remain at the top.
