Congratulations to Cliffe Woods who have been in 2nd spot in Div 2 all season but had to wait until their last match to confirm promotion and did so with a 7-3 victory over Howard 6 who finish 2nd bottom as a result of this defeat and possible relegation(depending on whether 1 or 2 teams are sent down). As has been the case all season, Peter Mortley led the way for Woods with 3 wins and grabbed a 14th Player of the Match Award which is the most by any player across all the divisions. Dad Trevor chipped in with wins over Phil Marchant and Michael Leonard(losing to Andy Marchant) and Andy Larner had a single win against Leonard, losing out to both Phil and Andy Marchant in 5 leg battles. As it turned out if Howard could have won the Doubles they would have tied on points with Chatham Dorset but agonisingly went down in the 5th. A brave fight by Howard who spent virtually all of the first half of the season at the bottom but have rallied in the 2nd half to just fall short in the last match. For the record this match was played on 10/4/18 due to bad weather in week 24.
