This past week has seen three matches in each of Divisions 1 and 3 of the Suffolk League. Manningtree A moved to the top of Division 1 with a convincing 3 – 1 win over Ipswich A, whilst the other two Ipswich teams, C and B, faced each other with Ipswich C running out winners by the narrowest of margins, This match saw two surprising individual results, with Silas Peck (179) beating Graham Moore (200), and Martin Fogg (171) beating Ian Wallis (189). The other Division 1 saw newly-promoted Saxmundham A beat a weakened Bury St Edmunds B 2½-1½.
The only player with a 100% record is Manningtree’s Andrew Lewis, who has won all three games.
In Division 3, the two Ipswich teams played each other, with E beating F 3 – 1. Both the Bury St Edmunds teams won, with D beating Felixstowe B 3 – 1 and E winning 3½-½ against a Stowmarket Rooks team that contained three members of the same family – Dad Gareth Young, daughter Bethany and 7-year old Harry playing in his first-ever league match.
Two players have a 100% record – Phil Mortensen (Ipswich) and Adam Leigh (Bury St Edmunds).
