Jimmy Yeung produced the performance of the week in Portsmouth & District League division one.

The Portsmouth Purple ace won a straight sets hat-trick against Generation Aces’ formidable line-up of Billy Ho, Mike Rhodes and Letitia McMullan.

James Mason played a blinder as well, losing only to Ho as the match ended all-square.

Portsmouth Orange kept up their 100-per-cent team record and clinched the title with a comfortable defeat of Navy, who look like ending in third spot. Adam Proszko scored three singles wins, having scraped home in four sets against Alex Rorke, who beat Tim Farmer and Wojciech Placek to make up the 8-2 scoreline.

Soberton & Newtown clinched fourth place by winning 7-3 at Generation Kings, with their formation of Robin Plunkett, Richard Billings and Dave Woodacre winning two apiece, having lost to Mike Rhodes.

Generation Jacks moved away from the danger zone. They eased past Cowplain Blue 9-1 with trebles by Andy Stagg and Will George. Trevor Emery got Blue on the board by getting the better of Lee Mullett.

PGC Blue edged Knowle Rovers 6-4 to put them in a second-to-bottom finish. Callum Shipp (3), Mike Gibbs (2) and Paul Fitzgerald were their scorers.

Graham Taylor responded with two victories, as team-mate Trevor Farrow took a single. Six of the nine singles went the distance.

Portsmouth Black clinched the division two title after beating bottom side Phoenix Saturn 9-1, with maximums by Rob Dunmall and Billy Edwards. Mike Turner got the only reply against Liam O’Neill.

Cowplain Neptune will finish as runners-up. However, they dropped a point to Cowplain Cobras for whom Alan Bland won twice, with Steve Waterson and Jim Malcolm taking a single each. Steve Long was undefeated for Neptune and Dave Wiles scored a double.

Portsmouth Water Blue are division three champions after an 8-2 success versus Phoenix Satellites.

Neil Lockton claimed another hat-trick. Dagmar Hrubisova responded with good wins over Pete Slatter and John Manuel.
