PHIL'S COMMENTS
Week2 The postal backlog in Liverpool was still reverberating causing consternation amongst the league organisers concerning the quiz questions; this rendered the league secretary ineligible again, for the match between Rose and Crown Starling and Swan and Railway Radcliffe A. But the defending champions this week had a few more players available, even so both teams had a slow start to the match with round one again being low scoring, round two saw the scoring pickup and the home side stretched there lead in rounds 3 and an imbalanced round 4 with Julie Keenan and Louise Hardman missing Mavisís magic tonic, the Swanís seemed to be struggling. The second half proved to be little better for the visitors scoring wise until the match entered the final round which they won but still lost overall 53-26. Kieran Goldsbrough and a pet rat playing a blinder this week for the home side and wife Helen respectively. The Pack Horse Affetside played host to Peter Taylorís Rose and Crown Ramsbottom side, with the home side on a close season diet of wiki-pedia and Websterís, they have started much better and look to be back to their form of two seasons ago, while the Rose Rammy have been slow to engage gear, and they slipped to a second defeat 48- 34. There was a relatively close affair at the SunDial, Walmersley road where they had the in form Radcliffe Cricket Club visiting. With both teams winning well in week 1 and in what already looks to be a very competitive season, Phil Dodd has the Cricketers ominously firing on all cylinders but the SunDiallerís will be up there at the top when it matters if the girls keep everything in check, sadly this week they succumbed to a very competitive 44 -52 loss. The match of the week at Stopes Tavern had the Rose and Crown Bury visiting and in an evenly matched game that had Stopes sneak into a 3 point lead at the interval thanks to a full house in the stick or twist round. The night was littered with incorrect answers, and both sides talked themselves out of points. With a question to go the game stood at 41-39 to Stopes but Roger Boltís in depth knowledge of Japanese Pebble arranging, the Taverners eased home, just ahead to a final score of 43-39. Team of the week Stopes Tavern. Another very close result occurred at the Swan and Railway where the Swan B had the Heap Bridge Social Club visiting, with the match going nip and tuck all the way, the Swan B squeezed a last round single point victory 44-43. Week 3 With a number of tough looking matches this week, the outstanding fixture and match of the week has to be last years champions Rose Starlings visit to the runners up, and already this years title favourites Radcliffe Cricket Club. The champions have got to be on top form to win this but after a stuttering start, this match maybe beyond their current match fitness levels and a win for the home side is predicted. Rose Bury host to the Swan B if both play to form it will be very competative but with both the Rose Bury starting quite well and Alec Fontaineís Swan Bís showing good current form, a very close result is highly likely, so can another draw be on the cards for the home side.The Swan A team play host to another form side, the Packhorse but a repeat of last years result is not predicted, unless Mavis brewís a strong tonic the home side will be second best to the Packhorse stable. The Phoenix Knights play host to SunDial and this is a hard to predict match, which if the home side play well, they will win, but the SunDial are becoming a very consistent side and the Diallers could be hitting a vein of rich form, and prove to be just too strong for the home team.Final game this week is the visit to Rose Rammy, of Stopes Tavern. If everything was equal this would be an odds-on draw, but with a Rammy side finding it hard to get off the starting line and Paul Gardnerís Tavernerís form much better than last year, the home side may succumb again.
