Copnor A maintained their unbeaten tag as they lifted the Portsmouth Summer League division one trophy.

The Copnor Road outfit capped a fine campaign with a 7-2 triumph over Portchester X.

A perfect record of 12 straight wins gave them an eight-point victory margin over their arch-rivals Craneswater A.

Copnor A led the Portchester outfit 6-0 after the singles.

And then Steve Toms and Kevin Harding completed their doubles to punish Jason Tame’s gang further.

Bellair A finished on a high as they hammered bottom side Copnor B in similar fashion.

Jim Hutton, Matt Beardworth, Andy Smith and skipper Lee Harding all potted well to thwart John Wyatt and Trevor Sanders.

Craneswater R got one over the Craneswater Z team with an emphatic 6-3 return.

Harry Yard, Chris Trim and Chris Davies all bagged doubles to rub out Mark Jones’ resistance.

Craneswater Q landed the division two silverware with ease.

They finished the campaign 10 points ahead of North End Bowls.

The Q stars wound it up with a 5-4 triumph at Alexandra.

The triumph came courtesy of fine displays by Tony Lee and Graham Tregardine.

Alexandra kept it close – with Dave Harfield, Tony Best and Matt Sheath performing well.

Richard Pitman scored again for Bellair B but Post Office had the best of the match, chalking up a 7-2 victory.

Jamie Farrow and George Mountford were among the scorers as the team recovered to win the last five and claim success.

Tony Simmonds, Dave Glover and Tony Bushnell starred for Copnor D as they got back on track with a 6-3 at Leigh Park.

The Workies slumped in the pairs matches after decent early play by Dave Riddell, Steve Scott and Ian Fleming.

One week remains in division three and Cowplain B have a good chance of securing second spot.

They battled to a 5-4 triumph against the young Copnor Cuestars outfit.

Pete Gorvin and Will Garrett dominated proceedings, despite resistance from Cuestars’ Chloe White.

Serial champions Topspot swept Pompey Royals aside 7-2 at Havant.

Bill Phillips, Nathan Hickley and the Wilsons all cruised to doubles.

Paul Tinsley and Steve Orchard produced token wnning racks.

Copnor F were 6-3 winners over Cowplain C.

Dave Levy and former skipper Ted Dowse did well.

But the city boys were in charge, with Darren Harper and Gary Green prominent.
