Group B of the Leicester and District League Summer competition for the Elbow Tankard has been settled with all matches played.

Top are Park and Ride who have been heading the group all the way through, scoring a terrific 16-4 success against club-mates, Park Keepers, when Oscar White showed terrific form with a six from six maximum as well as winning both his doubles with Patrick Cox.

Park and Ride could not quite finish with a 100 per cent tag, however, in a match that White missed. It was a terrific tussle against Electric City with all six players in the match winning and losing a few.

Finally, Park and Ride’s Adam Green faced Andy Wright with the score 10-8, receiving 9 per game. The latter held fast to win 23-21, 21-19 to secure a well deserved 10-10 draw.

Also through to the semi-finals from this group are Vicars, who had a close encounter with Park Keepers before shading the match 11-9 with Vishal Parmar winning five from six and Bhulesh Rathod three from six. Dean Jordan was again in good form for Keepers with four from six but he lost 21-19, 21-19 to Parmar in an early crucial clash.

In contrast, Group A still has some outstanding matches but KP Nutters made sure of a semi-final place by beating their club-mates, Knighton The Town, 11-9. Mike Smith played well for the winners but it was Robert Geary who supplied the vital game when he beat Chris Parmar-Saville 21-18 in the final one of the match.

Desford Dynamos grabbed their first point when holding Nomads to a 10-10 draw to dent the latter’s chances. Keith Adams won three from four singles and a similar doubles return while, for Nomads Andy Searle won five from six. Nomads now need to beat the Nutters to progress.
