- Meanwhile, the disappointments of the previous weeks were put firmly behind them as Alcester stormed to six wins from seven matches.
They opened with their first double of the season in the Northfield League Division Three.
Alcester’s Renny Bannister (21-8), John Alderson (21-11), Mike Dempsey (21-13), Dave Hovell (21-18) and Jean Bannister (21-20) put Central Edgbaston A to the sword.
The 14-shot away win brought eight points Alcester’s way.
The A and B teams both registered wins against Henley A and B teams respectively in the Yardley Wood League.
In Division Two, at Meeting Lane, the A team produced a 33-shot victory to collect eight points.
Winners for Alcester were Dave Hovell with a superb 21-5, Jean Bannister (21-11), Renny Bannister and David Whittington (both 21-12) Ken Craddock (21-16) and Bob Le Resche (21-17).
In Division Five, Alcester expected little from their visit to Henley having lost at home the previous week.
A single-shot success gave them an 8-2 win to close the gap between these two teams at the top of the table to just two points.
In the Heart of England Division One, 54 shots was the winning margin as Alcester defeated Rubery SJC, with Bob Le Resche in brilliant form to record a 21-3 win.
In Division Six, Alcester still have an outside chance of promotion as a result of a hard fought win at Solihull Marsh Lane. The seven-shot win was eclipsed by a magnificent 21-1 win for Ken Harvey.
