100% record emphatically ended by Rode

Hopes of an unbeaten season were soon dashed when the club visited Carleton Rode with numerous regulars not available. The first half got off to a terrible start with Mary Fisher, Hayley Osborne and Chris Mann being thumped 6-21 by Mike Newby, Debbie Bunn and Karl Newby. With two regular leads playing in the same block it was going to prove difficult with the Rode triple playing well and so it proved. On the other mat Valerie Vardy, David Chadwick and Jon Sparham also went down after a bright start but the match got away from them in the closing stages as S. Hawkins, Karl Bunn and Neil Davidson played well to win 12-20. 

The second half saw another big win for Carleton Rode's Karl Newby with Tony Oram and Graham Mobbs who beat Roger Steele, Melvyn Barker and Debbie Sparham as they won 9-25 and sealed the win for the home side. A consolation win was had by Billie Barker, Steve Easter and Jack Pye who beat Jill Davidson, Graham Atter and Russell Davidson 18-6.
