Windmill and Royal Oak win big, Moseley earn fab four
It was all home wins in Gameweek 1 of Division 1 as Windmill and Royal Oak set the early pace. Both teams won 9-1 with a big aggregate win. Royal Oak captain Mark Rose commented on a “solid and professional performance by the Oak, best players on the night were Keith Knight for us and John Evans for Ward End Cons (both won MVP and were best winners 1 and 13 respectively). The green was in excellent condition.” Windmill also defeated Castlefields by the same score, and spokesman Darrell Handley knows it “was a very good start for us against a team who will be challenging for promotion. We just need to take game by game in which is going to be a very difficult Monday season with so many good teams in this league.” Darrell was MVP himself for winning 8 but it was Mick Bardsley who was best winner 7. New signing Andrew Hughes was the only winner for the Fields, winning 9 to take best win and MVP.
Moseley CC will be the happiest out of all the away sides as they picked up four winners at Baddesley. They weren’t far off the aggregate either with just 5 chalks separating the two teams, with the home side thankful to Harry Chapman’s best win of 7 which earned him MVP. New signing Grant Soller was best winner and MVP for the away side winning 12, the same score as James Seville won. Chadsmoor will also be happy with their 3 points at Penn, although did win there last season. Pete Cookson was best winner for them 12 while Dave Rhodes marked his return with MVP for his 14 win. New signing Mark Jones was best for the home side 10 but Gary Cooper got MVP for his 13 win. Three Magpies beat Great Barr 8-2 in the clash of the Warwick and Worcester sides. Gareth Herbert was best winner 6 with Jack Williams getting MVP for winning 7. Bob Jones was best for the visitors 16 but Jordan Patrick got MVP for winning 19.
