No stopping Wymondham on their own mats

Not for the first time Wymondham totally dominated proceedings on their own mats as they chalked up another huge Breckland League win. Visitors Hingham, a mid table side, sent what looked on paper a competitive side to take on the champions but Wymondham’s reputation as almost impossible to beat at their home venue in North Wymondham has been built on the back of some massive 10-0 home wins and this was no exception. Their total shots win of 134-11, giving them a +123 shots difference, was just one short of the +124 shots win against Connaught “B” earlier in the season but the 37-0 win for Billie Barker, David Chadwick & Jack Pye in the second half of the match was an individual score that could well be the biggest in the club’s history. John Jeffrey, Andrew Jackson & Jon Sparham opened with a 33-2 win while Mary Fisher, Owen Cranston & Chris Mann added a 31-6 win. Alongside Jack Pye’s big win after the break Hayley Osborne, Melvyn Barker & Debbie Sparham won by 33-3 and Wymondham look absolutely certain to be on their way to celebrating yet another Breckland League title. They have certainly come a long way since the days when Connaught “A” reeled off title after title in the Breckland League and Wymondham spent most of their time at the foot of the table. While the margin of this defeat will be disappointing for Hingham they can console themselves with the thought that Wymondham have won every single home match again this season, while Hingham themselves have performed well to occupy a mid table position in the league. Second placed Connaught “A” won 8-2 at Shropham where David Aldous, Richard Broad & Paul McDonald won their game by 23-5. Michael Godbold’s triple secured two points for the home side with a 16-15 win against Mike Minshull’s triple. Competing with Connaught for the runners-up spot are Carleton Rode who also won 8-2 away against Harling Unicorns. The family triple of Michael, Terry & Karl Newby led the way with a 26-2 win against Roger Braham’s triple while Mo Tarrant, Daphne Braham & Mike Tarrant earned Unicorns two points with a 17-12 win against Russell Davidson’s triple. A very close match saw Thetford beat Shropham 6-4 on points with just one shot separating the two sides. For Thetford Peter Harvey’s triple won by 19-12 and Jason Martin’s triple won 17-10. Shropham’s winning triples were skipped by Peter Walker and Jim Delaney who won by 21-15 and 17-10 respectively. In the weeks other match Harling Griffins won 8-2 at Connaught “B” where Janet Marsh, Jean Deathridge & Ron Marsh scored the nights biggest win of 19-9.
