Junior League 2014/15 – Half Season Report

At the half way point of the 2014/15 Junior league Penkhull A lead the way in Division 1 thanks to Will Pugh and Kingsley Barber.  They remain unbeaten so far this season and have drawn up a 4 point margin over their nearest rivals – Bradwell A are the likely challengers to Penkhull A.  Penkhull C are the surprise of Division 1 having leapfrogged Penkhull B and are only 3rd on sets difference to Bradwell A thanks to the efforts of Callum and Connor Smith and James Green.

Whilst in Division 2 Penkhull D and E are 1st and 2nd respectively with the D team top by 2 points thanks to Bobby Tasker and James Martin remaining unbeaten so far, with the E team of Morgan Wilde and Sienna not far away. The F team picked up two good wins in the second of 4 sessions to move away from the bottom of the Division. Clayton D, E and F are still in the hunt but will need to reverse losses from the first half of the season if they are to overturn the table as it stands.

The 3rd session takes place at Clayton Hall Business and Language College on the 10th January 2015 (2nd Saturday of the new year).

League Update – Xmas Edition!

Hi all!  Here’s a quick run-down of where Penkhull’s best and brightest teams are as we enter the Xmas break period.

In the Potteries League, Penkhull A are safely established in mid-table heaven in the Premier Division thanks to the efforts of regular players Dave Mottershead, Mark Turner and Phil Barnish who are all returning impressive averages and taking scalps on a regular basis.

Penkhull B are finding it tougher going in the Prem and are just above the relegation spots with 4 points, proving just how high the level is in the top division.  Recent performances have been excellent however, including a close 6-4 loss to Norton C.  Hopefully this continues in the new year and the team cements their Prem position!

Penkhull C are 5 points clear of the chasing pack in Division 2, level on points with top side Norton G, and remain unbeaten this season.  If this momentum continues, Division 1 beckons for next season.  The showdown with Norton G at home on the 3rd March 2015 will likely be crucial!

In the Stone League, Penkhull are in a very strong position in top spot with a 100% win record for the season so far.

We’ve had great contributions from all players at all levels this season so far.  Hope everyone is enjoying their hard-earned rest, and we hope to see you all come back recharged and fighting in the new year!
