The Scorpions were the first

side to face the devastating form

of the Sarnians and surprisingly

it was Alex Robinson who dropped

the only game of the encounter.

Robinson was one of only two

players in the division with a

100% record, but it fell during a

surprise straight games defeat to

Craig Hastie, who Joshua Butler

had earlier dispatched in straight


Butler won his other singles

match in straight games over Steve

Crosby and Joshua Stacey and

Ben Foss also came through the match unbeaten.

Going into the weekend with an

unbeaten record of 10 victories,

they proceeded to add another

four straight wins to finish the

season with a perfect record and

a massive seven-point gap to the

sides in second position, Warrington

TTC and Rotherham Scorpions II.

Those sides were the opposition

on the opening day of the action

and comprehensive 7-1 wins were

recorded in each.

RAVENSCROFT I finished their British National League campaign off in style this weekend and secured promotion from Division Four North.

Butler continued his blistering

form in the afternoon with two

more straight game victories over

his Warrington opposition.

Robinson and Foss chipped in with two wins, but Stacey was defeated in straight games by David Eden, having started with a straight-game win over Mark Bleakley.

With the title already sealed, the relaxed side romped to an 8-0

whitewash over North Ayrshire in the penultimate match.

The outclassed Scottish-based

side were unable to even extend

any match to the full five-game

distance, Ian Macpherson coming

the closest during his four-game

loss to Foss, 14-12 the score in the final end.

The final match resulted in a 6-2 win over venue hosts, Halton TIC IV. Butler had dropped his first end of the weekend during a fourgame win over Andrew Macpherson, but he was back to top form in this fixture with straight-game win numbers six and seven of the weekend.

Robinson clinched the highest

averages accolade by winning

both of his singles matches in straight games.

Stacey beat David Eckl in four,

but lost out 12-10 in the fifth to

Anthony Whelan in the opening

tie of the match.

Foss beat Jordan Mcgarry in four, but was defeated by Eckl in straight games.

All four Guernsey players feature

at the top of the averages for

Division Four North in terms of

wins over the course of the season,

Foss with 22 out of 28, Stacey

with 23, Butler with 24 and Robinson

with 27.

The Ravenscroft second string

team comprising Lawrence Stacey,

Paul Hainsworth, Dawn Morgan

and debutant James Rabey found the going tough during the final weekend of fixtures in the fiercely contested Division Four South.

They finished the season in sixth place and will remain in Division

Four next year.
