Weekly Update - Summer League Week 8 - 04/06/2019
It was week eight of the Kirkham Pool Summer League and in Group B, Kirkham Cricket B moved clear at the top after a 7-0 away win at the Derby Inskip. They are now 6 points clear of the Boot & Shoe B after the Cricketers A squad did the leaders a big favour by beating the Boot 5-2 on home soil. A fine result for Jake Myers men. The Stable Bar C found a little bit of form, taking out the Royal Oak 5-2, whilst the Boot & Shoe A equalled that scoreline at home to the Stables Bar D. The final match in this section saw the battle of the two Stanley teams and the B squad just edged out the A squad 4-3.
In Group A the Coach & Horses and Lytham-Ex Service continue to dominate, the Coach travelling well to the Links and returning to Freckleton with a 6-1 win in their back pockets and the Lytham lads also won handsomely, 5-2 over the Coach A squad. Wrea Green Institute lie third after a 4-3 home win against the Plough B, The Mayfield had a fine comeback win against the Plough A, reeling off the final three frames to seal a 4-3 victory. The last match in this group saw the Freckleton Social club derby, with the B lads leaving it until the last frame and experienced hands of David Eyre and Ian Scott to overcome Rowland Lund and Phil Kerr in the deciding doubles game.
Group C sees Lea Club B stay top without playing and Kirkham Cricket D couldn't take advantage as they went down in the derby match against Bob Lennon's C squad 4-3. The Stables A team are gathering pace and sit handily in third after a 5-2 home win over the Queens whilst the Stables Bar B are also going well and lie fourth after a fine 5-2 away win at the Kirkham Cons Club.
