Division Four

STROUD B have unfortunately been forced to withdraw for the season. The club has attempted to field both A and B teams, but with a declining number of players available, this has not been possible. In the two matches that took place, Fairford B won relatively comfortably with only Mike Neal holding them off to collect some points for Nailsworth Mills B. Tetbury B had a close home game against Dursley B. John Morton-Cox and Ray Blacker for Dursley won by eight and 11 shots respectively but a 16-shot win by Eddie Hayes for Tetbury restricted Dursley to a three-shot win overall.

RESULTS: Nailsworth Mills B 2 Fairford B 8; Tetbury B 2 Dursley B 8.
