Castletown maintaining top spot..
Atrocious weather on Friday 21st July saw the cancellation of two matches while the rest were playing under very trying conditions with Greens holding quite a lot of water.
Ballaugh B hosted Port Erin and on a very wet day the Southerners put a lttle sunshine into their lives by taking a 6-2 victory with Bobby Clayton and Peter Corlett being the winners for Ballaugh.
At the Villa Douglas B lost 7-1 to Nobles A with Douglas player Les Quayle getting his first win with a 21-19 victory over Joe Bullock.
Douglas A travelled to play Port St Mary A on a Green that was only just playable and the men from the South won 7-1 although this could have been much closer with both Stuey Garrett and Tommy Rougvie only losing 21-20 and Keith Fearnley 21-18. The winner for Douglas was Keith Rise who inflicted a 21-11 defeat on individual merit leader Chris Oates, this being the first loss of the season for Chris.

Onchan A struggling to keep up their push for the League entertained Castletown B and in what seemed a very close encounter the result was a very fitting draw.
