Warren Club got thumped at home to the Duke of Wellington's Roman Windmill.
Only Gary Ridley managed a win for the home side after Chris Reeves had missed his first one-up in the final game.
In the first Richard Wooton and Nick Brown had an 'after you Claude' game, which was finally settled by Nick losing a game-winning break 2 minutes from the end (missed a ball up the middle of the table).
In the second I lost to the Chubbster for the first time ever. My opening 2000 was never enough and that turned out to be my only chance as Glenn notched up enough in two breaks.
That left skipper Higgins with no choice but to act as sacrificial lamb to Nigel Senior. Two 7500 breaks later the match was won 3-0.
At least that gave Neil a chance to let Tony Burgess have a rare go at the break, Tone responded by missing it and a scrappy game ensued. Chris Tupper eventually got the break back after 10 minutes and that was that.
The evening wasn't a total wash out for the Warren Club. Amadou et Mariam's Dimanche a Bamako went down very well over the sound system and Ridley and Barnett were extremely happy with the splendid performance by the mighty Spurs in Istanbul!
WINDMILL C 4-1 ELMS B Another struggle for the Elms after a week off :-/John Hayward made a steady start in the first but it was never really enough.Dave France was never in the 2nd,Captain Vern Blake managed to win our first game of the season in the 3rd ,Terry Denyer was well beaten in the 4th and by the time I played in the last it was all over.At least I managed to get a good starting break of 2500 :),but only ended up with 2800 :( It all seemed so much easier 25 years ago !!! Well played the Windmill
Game 1 was very scrappy, Martin Smith beating Denise Mahy 2½k - 1½k.
Game 2 saw Sue Mariner open with just 500, Tony Lewis made 8k & touched up at first visit.
Game 3, Geoff Jukes killed with 8k opener, giving Jean Over no chance.
Game 4 went to the Dolphin, a very impressive performance by the fast-improving Caroline Retfalvi, a 7 k+ score compiled in 2 breaks more than enough to see off Grant Tully.
Game 5 was a repeat of last week's Brighton Masters final, Ian Lelliott repeating his victory over Alan Brackenridge. Ian left the 1-up short at 7500, but returned to the table moments later to finish it off.
Caroline is indeed improving rapidly. She played her first Interleague match for Brighton B on Sunday and after making then losing a 6k break she kept her head together to knock in a 4k break to win her game!!!!!!!
Done the double at last Brighton and Worthing lower division masters winner!!
Former Brighton singles plate winner.

I would like to take some credit for my loved one's rapid improvement in our much loved game, however I can't in all fairness...
After trying to pass on my wisdom since we have been together, it seems that only now where she hardly ever sees me play and now that we don;t have time to practice together has she started getting big scores. It's my plan to make sure she never sees me play again, and my reward will simply be for me to steel the world championship trophy from her flat when she wins it and claim it as my own for all the support and love I give her.....
Much easier than trying to win it myself I think you will agree....
