League week 7

The Oxford and District Bowls league, sponsored by Yarnton Nurseries, reached the halfway point in the season on Thursday.

Headington A’s comprehensive 5 – 1 defeat of Carterton now puts them in first place in Division 1. Wins for the rinks of Ian Snowdon, Mark Charlett and Howard Watts proving to much for the home side, despite Gordon Walker’s rinks efforts.

City and County A’s comfortable victory at home to Banbury Chestnuts maintained their second place whilst Banbury Central A’s straightforward win at Witney Mills moved them into third place and pushed the home side deeper into relegation territory.

Division 2 is still very tight and there could be major changes in the second half of the season. South Oxford A still lead the division, by a single point from Bicester, despite not playing this week.

Division 3 is still close enough that, with the right results, any team could still be promoted or relegated. All four matches were also close this week. Chipping Norton’s ten point winning margin being the largest of the night. Wins by Stuart Davies, Keith Field and Peter Rathbone proving too much for the visitors, Bloxham, despite John Stephens valiant 16 shot victory for them.
