The two Knighton Park teams are keeping control of Group B of the Leicester League’s summer competition for the Elbow Tankard, both having won all four matches so far with everything being decided on their two matches to come.

Park Keepers are top by way of some first class individual performances to spearhead what is a team with in depth form.  Against Bishops skipper, Dean Jordan, had an excellent match in winning all six games as well as combining with George McClurkin for two in the doubles.  McClurkin won his other two doubles games with Conor Wilde as well as picking up three out of four singles in the 16-4 victory.  Geoff Hancock beat Wilde 2-0 for Bishops to be leading after the first set but it turned around big time.

Keepers followed this with a 14-6 win over Electric City and this time it was Jack Mooney leading the way with a six game maximum.  Jordan was again to the fore, this time with four from six, while Eddie Kwok supplied two from two in both singles and doubles.  Jack Kermode was Electric’s most successful player with two singles and one doubles.

Battling to keep pace with their club mates Park Attendants scored a 12-8 win over Bishops in what was an excellent team effort.  Angela Bowness scored 3-1 in both the singles and doubles to turn the tide while John Bowness won four from six, somewhat fortunately coming back to beat John Wolfe from 10-20 down, while Patrick Cox clocked three from six.  For Bishops Kishen Mistry played very well and was well worth at least his four from six return.

The busy Bishops team had better fortunes against Desford Dynamo’s when Mistry won five from six in an 11-9 victory backed by three from Wolfe who also supplied two from his doubles.  Lee Berrill won three from four for Desford.

In Group A Vicars moved to top position on the back of their 14-6 win over Park Keepers with Tosh Singh winning five from six, Raju Rahul four from six and Shabnam Ahmed three from four.  Chris Parmar-Saville won three for Keepers.

Level on points at the top are Nomads, but they have a match in hand over Vicars.  Nomads beat Park Strollers 14-6 when  Andy Seale took a very good five from six, including a terrific 19-21, 21-19 win over Aman Rashid, while Trevor Hawkins once again showed solid form with four from six.
