St Gabriel's A closed the gap on third placed St Chad's in Division One with a 9-1 win against Thompson Insurance B.

David Robson and George Gibson breezed through the match for St Gabriel's, both players winning their three singles matches with ease.

Tom Bainbridge added a further two wins, before combining with Norman Pescod to take the doubles 3-0.

But Pescod did meet his match against Eddie Coxon, the Thompson player prevailing to win 3-2.
