Carter clinch a league and cup double
The Summer League Short Mat Championship title went to the last match as defending champions Bob Carter entertained Wymondham with the visitors defending a two-point lead at the top.
Unfortunately for Wymondham the two points proved insufficient as Carter repeated their previous week's 8-0 demolition of Wymondham in the Summer Cup final to complete the league and cup double. At the foot of Division One Thurton visited Horsford B for both teams last game of the season.
With the teams level on points, and five points behind Kirby Bedon B, the reward for the winner would be survival in the top flight while the losing team would be relegated with Kirby B.
The only result that would save Kirby B would be a 4-4 draw that would send both Horsford and Thurton straight back to Division Two after just one season and that incredibly was exactly what happened.
In Division Two action Sprowston SSC earned an immediate return to Division One after clinching promotion with a 6-2 win at Diss Green. Anglian Windows went into their last match needing six points to pip Sprowston for the Division Two title and did just that. Russell Daynes, Diane Boswell and Mike Boswell delivered wins of 23-7 and 21-7 against Thorpe Marriott A and Avril Walker's triple weighed in with a 14-8 win. With Watton Green already relegated the match between Horsford 'A' and First Bus was to decide who would go down with them and a 4-4 draw was enough to save First Bus.
Halvergate finished their first season in the Summer League twenty-six points clear at the top of Division Three and unbeaten. Their last fixture saw them beat Framingham Earl 6-2 with Ray Lamb's triple winning by 12-11 and 27-8. That result left Deaf Sports assured of promotion.
Chris Mann of Wymondham played in the UK Open Singles at Wye Valley where he reached the quarter-finals in an event that attracted top players from several different countries. Norfolk Over 60s lost by 57-51 on points in a friendly at home to Essex Friends at Lakeside, Lyng.
