BOXLEY 3 7 RAINHAM 4 3
Shock. Horror. Paul Paulding of Boxley suffered his first defeat of the season at the hands of Vic Hope of Rainham. This match featured no fewer than 4 braces, Paul winning his other two games but nearly losing to John Caplen earlier in the evening as he trailed 2 sets to 1 and went to a 14-12 win in the fourth leg before winning the final set decisively. Harrie Austin-Jones only lost to Vic and Bob Ellis was only beaten by John. Ron Weaver suffered a rare blank evening for Rainham and Boxley won the doubles in straight sets.
