After so long without a win in the Tens League Connaught reeled off their second victory in succession beating Hevingham 3-0. Di Quadling & Sylvia Parsons scored valuable shots in the opening pairs game beating Betty Cox & David Sharpe 19-8 so, despite Joe LiRocchi’s triple losing by 14-13 against Gill Bunn, Chris Brooks & Alan Bunn, Connaught went into the break ten shots to the good. Connaught’s domination in the pairs continued with a 15-12 win for Elaine & Bob Oatway against Pat Williamson & Steve Hall so the final triples game which was drawn 11-11 left Connaught celebrating a 3-0 home win.
