In the Premier Division, the 1st Team faced a difficult trip to take on the reigning Premier League Champions and the only Team in the League with a 100% record, Murrayfield 1. With Team Captain, Greig McDonell not available, Colin Green and Iain Johnstone called up Clive Liddiard to deputise - lucky him!! The defeat for the away side probably didn't come as a huge surprise but perhaps more of a surprise was the form of Colin who gets this week's player of the week award as he won two of his three singles matches. Neither Iain nor Clive could contribute in the resultant 8-2 loss.
In Division 2, the 3rd Team are one of only 3 sides in the entire League yet to taste defeat (Murrayfield 1 and Fife 2 being the other two). They sought to continue their unbeaten run as they faced a trip to bottom of the Division Murrayfield 6. The trio of James Wighton, Gary McDougal and Abby Wighton didn’t break sweat as they recorded their 11th win of the season with a 10-0 win. No energy wasted either as they received a walkover!! A good week for the team was rounded off when third placed Edinburgh International could only manage a draw in their fixture against West Lothian. With our own 2nd Team not in action this week, the 3rd Team now have a healthy 5 point advantage at the top of the Division.
In Division 3, the 4th Team had been on a remarkable run since the latter part of 2014 winning six consecutive matches, including the previous week’s win against the team in second place in the Division, West Lothian 7. Hot on the heels of that match was last week’s match at Ladywood against one of the undefeated teams mentioned above, Fife 2. The team's great run had seen them move from 3rd bottom of Division 3 to 3rd top and they knew that a win would bring them within 3 points of the Division leaders. Team Captain Phil Daly selected Gavin Hunter, Krzysztof Laszkiewicz and Tony Brentnall for the top of the table clash. When Gavin lost the first match of the night the attention turned to Kris who had been in excellent form the previous week winning all three of his singles. When he lost a tight match in a deciding fifth end it looked bleak for the home side. With only Tony contributing with two wins in the next 7 matches, Gavin was left to play the final match of the night with the game already lost. Although he won that game, the trio were left disappointed with their 7-3 defeat. The loss gives the Fife side a 5 point cushion at the top of the Division although the 4th Team remain in contention for promotion as they now sit two points behind second placed West Lothian.
