In last week’s Deltawaite Ltd Furness Senior Citizens’ League Division Two, it was a good day for the visiting teams with all six fixtures resulting in away wins.

The pick of these was Askam’s 7-4 victory at North Scale on what is regarded a strong home green after coming out on top on aggregate points. The game saw single-figure wins for the hosts’ John Simpson (21-8) and Will Coates (21-5) for the winners.

It was a bad day all round for Hawcoat Park C. Playing two short was bad enough when playing their B team, but they then had to go through their clubmates claiming the bragging rights with a 9-2 win.

Leaders Glaxo made it 12 wins form 12 in only dropping two games against Walney Park B. The Park’s winners were Barry Holland and Tom McDougal, with Glaxo skipper Rod Lewis winning 21-6. Second and third place sees Walney Park A and West Mount level on points. Walney dropped one game when winning 10-1 at bottom side Salthouse A.

Meanwhile, West Mount shared the games with West Shore A but took the aggregate points to win 7-4. There were single-figure wins for the Mount’s Alan Haines (21-6) and a (21-7) for home man Ron Clements.

The closest game saw King Alfred A win 6-5 at West Mount A, despite only claiming three games; the aggregate points seeing them home.

In Division One, it was the exact opposite, with all games going to the home sides. At Hawcoat Park, the leaders proved too strong for their A team, winning 9-1.

Walney Park were another side to win 9-1, as they breezed past bottom side Barrow Island. Prior to the game they themselves were in the relegation places, but the win lifted them three places and eight points clear.

It was a better day for Barrow Island’s A team, as they defeated Dalton CC 7-3, with Harry Dagger and Terry Marshall gaining single-figure wins.

Co-op SC A are in the drop zone following their 7-3 loss at Askam. This shows how difficult life can be for the newly-promoted sides with last season’s successful side occupying both places.

Kirkby’s Peter Lee won his game by a single chalk at King Alfred to prevent his side suffering a whitewash as they lost 9-1.

Lindal remain tied for second place following their 8-2 win against West Shore. In doing so, the village side had four single-figure winners in the shape of Daves Bennett and Dickinson along with Chas Crellin and John Crompton.

The remaining game saw Roose and Ulverston Cons share the games with the former claiming a three-chalk margin to take the aggregate and the match 6-4.
