Despite being on the losing team Poulton's Nikki Wilford won her 4 ladies and her 4 mixed with Ant Forrest to be POTM. Luke Bennett won 7 important games for Kingfisher who are now favourites for the runners up spot.

Jenny Stothard and Fran Hellier played well to win their ladies 2-0 , however this proved to be the only games that Albany B managed in their match v Fleetwood A . The current leaders eventually won 22-2. Dave Wiseman won 8 and had the best points difference.

Division 2
Kingfisher B find themselves in joint second after a home win v Fleetwood B by 17-7. The away team were still in the match at 7-5 down after the levels, however Kingfisher proved much too strong in the mixed winning 8-2.

Lynne Williams once again Kingfisher's star player with 8 games and Nick Metcalf was Fleetwood's best performer with 4 games.

Lids B move up to joint second after a 19-5 win over their own C team who remain in bottom place. Lisa Musson, Helen Miller and James Leigh all won 7. For the C team Jason Lydon had a great match winning 4 of his teams 5 games.

Division 3
Bottom club Kirkham Charter B showed a lot of fighting spirit to earn a draw against league leaders Hesketh B who had previously won all their games! The Kirkham team played very well and were thrilled with the result which they could have won - Penny Page and Richard Passcucci were unlucky to lose 2 games to settings. At 10-12 down, Kirkham's Sarah Roberts and Dave MacKay comfortably won the last set to secure the draw and 2 vital points. Best players on the night were Dave and Hesketh's Vanessa Butcher who both won 6 games.

Unfortunately Stanley B took a heavy beating 20-4 against Ribby Hall B as they were one lady down and had to forfeit 8 games. Dave Johnson was on form winning 7 out of 8 games for Ribby who leapfrog Stanley in the table.

Project 12 moved to the top after with a 12-4 away win against Warton B.
Although Jon Jackson was POTM with all 8 games, the star of the match was 17 yr old debutant Stephan Martinovsky from Warton Juniors who won 2 games. Baptism of fire against a strong team! Well done Stephan!

Division 1
Kingfisher A stay ahead of the chasing pack after a comfortable win 20-4 over Pilling A. 4 players won 7 but Chris Foote had the best points difference. For Pilling Elaine Danson and Andy Davis won 2 each.

Albany A remain just outside the top 3 after beating their own B team 21-3. Sian Meakin was POTM winning 8 games and Amit Mistry won 2 for the B.

The ladies from Poulton A were too strong for their counterparts from Lids A winning all 6 games whilst the men's were more competive and ended 4-2 to Lids.

Division 2
Last week Project 12 were the comeback kings winning 14-10 after being 10-4 down. This week saw Stanley A perform another miraculous fight back in their match against Fleetwood B. 10-2 down after the levels, Stanley won the next 8 games to square the match 10-10 ! However Fleetwood regathered their nerves and the last 2 sets were split for a remarkable draw. Lynsey Rees and Lee Meakin were top scorers for Stanley with 5 - all 4 mixed plus 1 levels. Diane Atkinson and Ant Cross were top scorers for Fleetwood with 5 - all 4 levels plus 1 mixed !

Division 3
Kirkham Charter A easily beat their B team, who couldn't get into their flow, and ended up worthy winners 21-3. Both Emma Gilfoyle and Ian Chase won the maximum games and only J.Taylor-Millington bothered the scorers winning 2 games. This win keeps the A in second but the B remain rooted at the bottom of the division.

Ribby Hall A likewise trounced their own B team to stay in the promotion hunt. B team managed 2 split games in the mens and 2 in the mixed. Anita & Emma both with 8 for the winners and Dave winning 3 games for the losers. Big effort from the B team who managed to put a full team out despite illness's.

The pressure was on Hesketh B to keep up their unbeaten run and stay ahead of the chasing pack. The match against Stanley B started with their ladies winning 5 and their men winning 4 for a healthy 9-3 lead. Going into the mixed Stanley gave Hesketh a scare by winning the 1st set but Hesketh replied winning the 2nd. The next 3 sets were split to ensure a bonus point for Stanley but Hesketh's Vanessa Butcher & Mike Lloyd won the last 2 games to complete a 16-8 win. Not only are Hesketh unbeaten but this was their 7th consecutive win! Stanley's point means they sit comfortably in mid table. Vanessa & Andy Manson both won 7 for the leaders and Steve Whyatt played very well to win 5 games for Stanley.


Week 11 Report W/E 23rd November


Division 1 No matches

Division 2
Pilling B defeated Stanley A 16-8 thanks mainly to their ladies who won all 6. The men’s and mixed were much more even at 3-3 and 6-6. A mixed win at the end by Lee Meakin and Lynsey Rees meant Stanley reached 8 games and gained another vital bonus point, their 6th from 7 matches this season! which keeps them just above the relegation places. For Pilling this was their 4th straight win and keeps them in contention for promotion. Jane Grey was the POTM with all 8 games and Lee had a great match winning 3 men’s and 3 mixed for his 6.

Comeback of the season belongs to Project 12 after pulling off an astonishing 14-10 away win to one of their rivals Lids B. They were 8-4 down after the levels and then lost the next 2 games to go 10-4 down with Lids on cruise control! Project then found a new gear, showing grit and determination, to win the last 10 games to stun Lids and complete an amazing comeback! Congratulations to Sarah Coultas who was the star player on the night winning 6. Commiserations to Steph Tsang and Dan Cooper who both won 5 for Lids. The 3 points for Project keeps them in touch with all the other teams in 2nd spot.

Lids C look doomed after a 20-4 defeat to their relegation rivals Fleetwood B who just keep themselves in touch with Stanley A. Derek Hill won all 8 and Maureen Turner was involved in 3 of the wins for Lids.

Hesketh A stretched their winning streak to 7 with a hard fought win 14-10 over Kingfisher B. This was mainly due to their ladies winning 5-1 to establish a 4 game cushion which they maintained to the end as the men’s and mixed were tied at 3-3 and 6-6 respectively. Sheena Carberry was POTM with 7 for Hesketh and James De Wolf’s great effort won 6 for Kingfisher. This win means Hesketh increased their lead at the top to 6 points whilst Kingfisher have the consolation of a bonus point to keep them in the mix for 2nd place with Pilling B and Lids B on 15 points and Project 12 only 1 point behind on 14 !

Division 3

For the first time ever in the history of the Blackpool league an all ladies team from Albany played an all men’s team from Warton B !! Not certain but this could possibly be a first in all the Lancashire leagues as well ! Perhaps in a state of shock, Warton managed to lose the first 6 games !! They staged a mini revival but the match ended in a 10-6 win to the ladies. Natalie won 7 games . For the record books Albany’s team was Natalie Appleyard, Sian Meakin, Jenny Stothard and Serena Hindle.

At the mid point of the match between Stanley and Fleetwood the visitors found themselves 5-3 ahead. However Stanley then won the next 6 to ensure victory. Gareth Jones with a match winning 7 and Derek Hill picked up 5 games for Fleetwood.

Warton A gained revenge for their only defeat of the season with a decisive 11-5 win over Project 12. Warton started well winning 5 of the first 6 games and Project were never able to close the gap.

It looks like a 3 way fight for promotion with all 3 top teams managing comfortable wins this week.

On Monday Ribby Hall A beat bottom placed Kirkham Charter B 20-4 and maintain their fine start to the season. 4 games went to settings (3 to Ribby) reflecting Kirkham's fighting spirit. Anita Driscoll and Ian Womesley won 8 games for the promotion challengers. Amelia Parker,Dave Longbottom and Richard Pascucci replied with 2 for Kirkham.

On Wednesday Kirkham Charter A also kept pace at the top with an away win at Stanley B by 16-8. The match was poised at 6-6 after the level doubles but then KC forged ahead winning the mixed 10-2 although it was Stanley's mixed pairing of Julie Burrows and Steve Whyatt who won the very last game for a much deserved bonus point. Julie and Steve actually split all their games to end with 4 games each whilst James Atherton won 7 for KC to keep their promotion dream alive!

On Friday Hesketh B returned to top spot with an emphatic 19-5 home win versus Kingfisher C. The result doesn't reflect on the games as it was a brave effort by Kingfisher but unfortunately Hesketh were just too strong. Jill McMillan won all 8 of her games while Joe Wadsworth was a last minute stand in and won an impressive 6 games for his only 2nd match. Rebecca was the best player for Kingfisher winning 2 ladies, one 24-22 & a mixed. Thanks to Mike Lloyd for this report.

Week 7 Report W/E 26th October


Division 1
Despite some close scores, especially in the men's doubles,Fleetwood A consolidated their top spot with a 19-5 win away to Pilling A. Elaine Danson and Andy Davis with 3 were again Pilling's best performers whilst Fleetwood had Cath Bagley, Emily Broadbent and James Lester winning 7.

Albany B remain rooted at the bottom after a heavy defeat at the hands of Lids A by 23-1. Only a Paul Cross & Steve Tivey men's doubles troubled the scorecard. 4 players for Lids won 8 but it was Hannah Parr who conceded the fewest points!

Undefeated Albany A lost their 100% start as they lost 14-10 at Poulton Le Fylde A making the fight (for runners up spot ) even more fascinating. There were many close games which included 4 settings. PLF however capitalised on the fact that an Albany lady was unwell for the entire match but they kept their concentration to move up the table to second place. Nikki Wilford won 7 for Poulton and Rob Oakes won 6 for Albany.

Division 2
Another fantastic night of badminton as Lids B took on division leaders Hesketh A! There were so many crucial games with 5 of them (a league record so far!) decided on settings - Hesketh winning 4 of them. Overall far too much excitement for 'Chief Scribe', Carol Booth to take in! Hesketh ladies won 5-1 whilst the boys from Lids won 4-2. With Hesketh leading 7-5 it was vital that Lids won the first mixed set which they did through Steph T'sang and Dan Cooper to tie the match 7 all ! However the league leaders showed their experience by winning the next 6 games to get over the finishing line. Although Lids won 3 of the last 4 games Hesketh triumphed 14-10 and remain the team to beat! Sheena Carberry and Jill McMillan both won 7 for the victors. (Lin) Dan not only won 5 for the losers but also found time to send this enthusiastic report - Thanks!

Fleetwood B v Pilling B ended 5-19 to move Pilling (after a slow start to the season) up to 3rd and push Fleetwood nearer to the bottom. Ant Cross was playing his 4th match of the week and it was only Thursday!! In recognition of this I am calling it the “Effort of the Season” - unless someone can better it ! Elizabeth Harrison and Tim Shipway won all 8 games for Pilling whilst the best player for Fleetwood was - you guessed it - SupermAnt who won 4 games!

Division 3
Kingfisher C conceded their home match to Ribby Hall B.

Ribby Hall A moved into 2nd spot after a 16-8 win over Stanley B. Some close games with 4 settings emphasising this was a tough match in which Stanley won the last 2 games through Irene Radcliffe and Steve Wyatt to clinch a bonus point. Anita Driscoll and Emma Nickson with 7 for the home team - Steve won 6 for Stanley.

Game of the Week matched 2 unbeaten teams Project 12 and Warton A who met at Preesall for a top of the table clash. Unsurprisingly 4 of the 16 games went to setting with each team winning 2. It was Project 12 who started better winning 5 of the first 6 games to put themselves in a strong position. Although Warton rallied at the end and managed to close the gap it was never quite enough and Project 12 ran out winners 9-7. Jon Jackson won 6 for the home team and Jeremy Cara replied with 5 for Warton.


Week 6 Report W/E 19th October


Division 1
Only a Sam Ames and Will Booth men's split prevented a whitewash as Kingfisher A cruised to a 23-1 home victory v Lids moving them into top spot. However 4 settings all went the way of the home team suggesting it wasn't totally one sided. Jonathan Mosley statistically the best player on the night.

Albany B v Pilling A was a tough bottom of the table clash with both teams hoping to pick up points. Albany, however, were unable to convert their many net court shots and the match finished with a 23-1 win for Pilling. The scoreline doesn't really reflect how close the games were and included a 30-29 in the last levels game as well as 3 other games which went to setting.Only Amit Misty and Fran Hellier managed to win the final game 22-20 but not before the sports hall staff tried to pack up and walked onto the court with the score 19-20! Elaine Danson and Andy Davies were POTM (players of the match) for winning 8 games. Biggest shock of the night was Shippers declining an invite to the pub ! Thanks to Cockers for his onsite report!

Fleetwood climbed up the table with a tough 15-9 win at Poulton. They edged ahead 7-5 in the levels and then pulled further ahead winning the mixed 8-4. Nikki Wilford & Ant Forrest won 5 for PLF but Andy Wiseman was back to his best - winning all 8 for the Champions (elect?).

Division 2
Pilling B improved their lowly position with a 23-1 thumping of bottom team Lids C. Alison Crosbie statistically the best player - Julie Bennet & Mark Green with the solitary game for Lids.

Promotion chasing Lids B won an even match against Stanley A 14-10.The ladies and mens ended 3-3 to take the game into a mixed shootout. 4 of these sets were split but the other 2 sets were crucially won by the youngsters Steph T'sang and Dan Cooper who ended with 7 games each whilst 4 players from Stanley won 4 games.

Looking for an early return to Division 1 Hesketh A continued their great start with an emphatic 20-4 win over Fleetwood B who find themselves at the wrong end of the table. Sheena Carberry was POTM winning all her 8 games. Derek Hill and Ant Cross won 2 for Fleetwood.

Project 12 given a 24-0 win after Kingfisher B conceded the match.

Division 3
Game of the Week was Kirkham Charter B v Kingfisher C which was a friendly but evenly fought match and had some very close games including 2 settings both won by Kingfisher. Kirkham felt disappointed to lose 9-15 as only 3 points separated the teams in the end! Debbie Oddy won 7 for the winners whilst all Kirkham's men won 4 with Richard Pascucci not only having the best points difference but unusually managing to split all his games! Thanks to Penny Page for the details!

Hesketh B continued their winning run by defeating Ribby Hall B 16-8. There were some hard fought games with Hesketh going into the mixed 8 -4 up followed by winning the mixed by the same score. John Callahan picking up a game in his debut match for Ribby. Michael Lloyd won 7 for the winning team whilst Melanie Bunney played well to win 7 games for the losing team including a final mixed with John Wright to earn Ribby a bonus point. The highlight was the Halloween themed refreshments afterwards which was enjoyed by everyone. Thanks to Michael for this!

Stanley given a 16-0 win after Warton B conceded the match.

The mixed ended 6-6 to at least give Kirkham their first point of the season.

In order to try and speed up the report could all home team captains please copy me in when sending their scorecards. If they could send them by Saturday at the latest then this will ensure that their own match report is included.
In addition I apologise if I have misspelt anyone's names but not all scorecards are easy to read! Please let me know.
Finally, if anyone wishes to send a short report of their match perhaps 1-2 sentences then that would be most useful. There are 2 clubs that already do this so many thanks to Kirkham and Lids.
