ALDERMASTON moved out of the bottom two of Open Division Two with a resounding 9-0 win over bottom side Hurst B who are still searching for their first win, writes PETER ASKEW.

Hat-tricks from Chris Apsey/Claire Evans, William Belfield/Julie Ward and Neil Hince/Stephen Gaunt saw Aldermaston obtain maximum points.

Leaders Viking A stretched their lead at the top of Mixed Division One to 10 points with a narrow 5-4 win over Aldermaston, but second placed St Marys A have two games in hand.

Simon Williamson/Susan Godfrey held their nerve in the ninth rubber to complete their hat-trick and secure the win.

A hard fought double from Chris Apsey/Claire Evans top scored for Aldermaston who move up to third.

Leaders Beechdown B crashed to a 9-0 defeat to BH Pegasus but still top Mixed Division Two by two points although BH Pegasus in second have played two games less.

BH Pegasus have yet to drop a single rubber and hat-tricks from Rob Clayburn/Preow Chanpeng, Ryan Doe/Theresa Simmonds and Martin Davey/Rebecca Butterfield gave them their second successive maximum point haul.

Waverley B shrugged off the handicap of only having two pairs to edge out Phoenix 5-4.

A hat-trick from Adam Hood/Gill Trimmer and a double from Paul Branch/Nayab Syed saw Waverley B over the line.

A hard fought three ender from Pranjal Mathur and Alison Rendall gave Phoenix their point to add to the three concessions.
