In Division Two of the Deltawaite Ltd Furness Senior Citizens’ League, Glaxo SK are fast making it a one-horse race, as third-placed West Mount A were put to the sword last week.

The away team were no match, as they suffered a 10-0 whitewash with Terry Rhodes (21-5) and Rod Lewis (21-6) stand-out winners for Glaxo.

Second-placed West Mount found themselves falling further behind the leaders, despite impressively winning 8-2 against Askam A at home.

Leading man Kenny Baines won 21-9 with John Kirk and Roy Whatley picking up the villagers' points.

All of last fixtures finished in home wins, with the exception of North Scale’s visit to Hawcoat Park B with both sides sharing the games, although the aggregate points ensured the visitors won 7-4.

There was a single-figure win for Ray Sturgeon with Mike Bowyer reciprocating for the hosts.

Roose A were too strong for Walney Park B, as they prevailed 8-2 with Terry Fitzsimmons (21-3) and Bill Martindale (21-8) their winners of note.

King Alfred A were 8-2 winners when hosting Co-op SC B, headed by good performances from Jack Kolbe (21-10) and John Cannings (21-12).

In Division One, the most eye-catching result of the week saw Ulverston Cons beat King Alfred 7-3 at Church Walk.

The stand-out performance saw Ron Barker winning 21-3 with support coming from Dennis Rogers and Rae Postlethwaite.

It turned out to be not the best of days for the two Barrow Island sides with both suffering losses.

The A team lost 8-3 at home to Lindal, while the first team also drew a blank in being defeated 7-3 at Hawcoat Park A.

Hawcoat Park dropped just two games at the Co-op with Rodger Wood and Dave Harwood gaining the points for Co-op SC A in their 9-2 defeat.

Meanwhile, over at West Shore, Co-op came away 8-3 winners with Ian Sim (21-11) and Kenny Judge (21-10) setting the standard.

Second-from-bottom Walney Park shared the games at Salthouse, but lost the aggregate and therefore the game 6-4.

With a number of players due to return shortly they will be looking for an upturn in prospects in the weeks ahead.

Kirkby took full advantage of conditions on their difficult green when drubbing Dalton CC 8-0, a win that sees them move into fourth place.

David Turnough was their stand-out winner, running up a 21-4 scoreline, while there were also single-figure wins Steve Hurst (21-7) and Malcolm Cleasby (21-8).
