over Hospital A with Stuart Baxter for the losers in great form scoring a very good maximum.
Dynamos were on the winning side this time when they met Caister Com and took all 10 games. King's Church A met a similar fate when up against Burrage and came away with no points. Burrage were playing their new signing David Boatman.
In Division Two Gorleston Cons were on the winning trail again, this time at the expense of Mill Lane. In the very first game Colin Fortescue beat Albert Cadmore 30-28 but could not stave off an 8-2 loss.
Dave Smith, Mike Harvey and John Smith all took two games each when they met Acle B but they could not stop Alistair Sursham. Score: Beacons 7, Acle B 3.
Another good game for the Beacons who eventually won 6-4 against Acle Pirates after many up and down and 'comeback' games. The Pirates played well to take the doubles with Ashley Marsh winning two.
Telecom very sportingly agreed to alter the date of their match with Beacons but then found themselves a man down when their junior was unavailable but insisted the match be played and duly won six games to four.
Alistair Sursham was top man again for Acle B when they played King's Church C taking his three. Simon Rouse, Paul Light and Mathew Smith won two each for Kings.
Mike Wood played extremely well when King's Church C met Gorleston Cons, he was unbeaten but could not prevent his team from losing 7-3.
A good match was played when Mill Lane entertained King's Church D, the Church triumphed 6-4 thanks to two each from Brendan McManus, Mark Burns and Neil Booth. Colin Fortescue took the three for the losers.
St John's A still hold top position in Division One with 92 points from 12 games followed by St Johns B with 85 from 11 and Burrage 84 from 10. Police and Caister are still hovering at the bottom.
Gorleston Cons have moved away at the top of division two with 90 points from 12 games followed by Telecom with 80 from 12 and Claydon 76 from 11.
