Last summer we ended on 107 points for and 118 against. This summer was uncannily similar with 111 points for and 128 against; 7 wins and 9 defeats.
Whilst we have finished the season there are a few matches still not entered/played so I’m not sure if we will end up 3rd as we currently stand.

Report by Mossy
A crowd of over 50 assembled at Club Towers in Bedford last night to watch Towers 1 versus Biggleswade in the Beds Cup Final.
First up was Simon Gray at number 5 against Ian Thomas. Simon was on the back foot after the first game but played well forcing his opponent to make mistakes and levelled the match at 1-1. Thomas then cut out his mistakes and went on to win 3-2.
Nick Roberts at number 4 got off to an excellent start taking the first game against Steve Barlow. Thereafter they exchanged games to go to 2-2. Nick looked to be cruising at 13-4 in the fifth but then ran out of energy allowing Barlow to come back and take the lead. At 14-13 and nothing appearing to be left in the tank things looked desperate but Nick somehow found the energy and composure to win 3 consecutive points and win the match.
With the match now level Jay Ledger at number 2 faced the hard hitting Bruce St Ledger. It was apparent early on that Jay was suffering from an injury and Bruce spotting this adjusted his game to play many drops and take the match 3-0.
In a repeat of the league game 2 weeks ago Owen Ledger faced Will Montgomery and once again Owen proved too strong with a comfortable 3-0 win.
With the match all square Marcus Gray faced Lee Bartlett. Bartlett took the first game but Marcus upped the intensity in the second to level things. Despite continuing to play well the steady play of Bartlett proved to be too much resulting in a 3-1 defeat for Marcus and the trophy going to Towers 1.
A fine effort from the lads but as in the league runners up to Towers 1.
Many thanks to all those who travelled to support the team and a particular thanks to Robbo for organising and driving the minibus.
