Buckby dug in and took the first singles game through a rampant M Feasey who beat (140, 140, 140, 125, 125, 125) J Foster 2-0, only for the home team to take another hit with P Shirley (125, 100, 121) losing 2-0 to B Farmer (100, 100).

Sadly for Buckby, the slide continued with P Scott (100, 140) going down 2-1 to N Foster (136f, 100) as Daventry took an unassailable 4-1 lead.

Long Buckby went on to make the score respectable with R Feasey (100) winning 2-0 against B Hill and I Bow (100, 100, 100, 100) defeating D Foster (125, 100, 100, 100) 2-0.

Forester’s Arms went to Slim Jims and suffered a 7-0 defeat.

The game did not start well for the visitors with R Harris (85, 100, 81, 81) and P Butler (100) beating M Edwards and D Cawley 2-0, and S Hicken (100, 100) and T Miller (100, 125) winning 2 – 1 against G Payne (112, 140, 100) and A Harvey.

The trend continued as they moved into the singes with 2-0 victories for D Harris (100, 140, 113) over G. Smart (95), P Butler (100, 100, 100, 100, 140) over M Edwards (100) and T Miller (100) over A Harvey (100, 126).

With the match already won, this did not stop an outstanding performance from S Harris (85, 81, 81, 80, 100, 108, 85, 127) who took the game from D Cawley (120, 100).

The match was then finished off with A Mason (100, 140) beating G Payne (100, 100) 2-1.

The third match saw the Workers at home to the Wheatsheaf Weedon.

This match saw the Workers race into a two game lead with G Taylor (123, 100) and A Taylor (100, 100) winning 2-0 against J Wickham (100, 100) and L Arnold (121), then R Ludlow (100,100,100) and D Keating (100) beat Karen B and D Bangs 2-0.

The Workers followed these two wins in the doubles by taking the first singles game through R Ludlow (100, 100) as he saw off T Babbings 2-0.

The Wheatsheaf rallied at this point coming back in the next game with L Arnold (140, 100, 135) beating D Keating (100, 100, 100) 2-1, only for the home side to put their foot on the gas again winning the next game as G Taylor (123, 148, 138) seeing off Karen B 2-0.

The away side took the last game in a good scoring encounter, with D Haines (100, 140, 140, 100) missing out to J Wickham (100, 100, 100, 140).

The final score was 5-2 to Workers.
