LAST Sunday, St Andrews got through yet another round of the Top Club competition, defeating Taunton Deane.

This competition is played on a points basis, in the morning session eight points were at stake with the triples and fours.

Both games finished in Saints’ favour, Andrew Owen’s triples winning by 19 shots and Don Bailey’s four successful by 10 shots.

The first of the afternoon games were the ladies singles worth two points and the mixed pairs worth four points.

Carolina Venn won the ladies 
singles, giving the Saints a match winning total of 10 points. The mixed pairs and the men’s singles were both conceded by the opposition.

On Sunday, St Andrews play the next round of the Egham Trophy against Plymouth.

St Andrews 16, Taunton Deane 0 – ladies singles: C Venn 17-12; mixed triples: K Uglow, M Favis, A Owens 25-6; mixed fours: P Uglow, A Campbell, R Venn, D Bailey 25-15.

■ THE early exchanges in the Pro Wash Open Triples at St Andrews suggested that the Hunters mid-season revival would continue.

Brenda Goddard, Dave Nutt and Malcolm Goddard were dominant and swept to a 7-0 advantage over the Goodwoods. Gradually, however, Don Bailey, Ted Day and Pat Pattenden seized control and claimed an exciting win by four shots.

Runaway league leaders the Chasers, for whom Phil Villis impressed, were not extended as they cruised to victory over the Classics. Meanwhile, second played third in a nail-biter as the Jackpots met the Yankees in a tight match.

Caroline and Richard Venn with Barrie Forse ultimately prevailed for the Yankees, who now aim to close the gap on the leaders.
