LAYABOUTS (John Biggs) clung on to top spot in division one of the Victory Triples League despite suffering a one-shot defeat against Crescent (Adrian Snook).

Biggs & Co now lead by one point from Royals (Graham Moore), who chalked up a 24-shot victory against The Exocets (Dennis Smith).

Copouts (Mick Molloy) enjoyed a six-shot success against defending champions D.Dennis (Bill McGubbin) and remain very much in the hunt, as do The Blues (Alan Sprake) who won by four against Naismith (Dave Deacon).

Kackanders (Paul Cooke) took over the top spot in division two when they scored seven shots in the final three ends to beat previous leaders Gamblers (Barry Starks) by four shots.

Claret’N’Blue (Roland Bloy) hold a three-point lead in the Tuesday league, thanks to a six-shot victory against Post Office (Trevor Moore).

Cardsharps (Mel Dunbar) enjoyed a seven-shot success against Fiesta (Gerry Dobson) to remain in touch with the leaders.

Em’N’Ems (Bob Floyd) are also in the hunt for honours, despite conceding a four on the final end, as they beat Odd Bowls (Dave Powe) by one shot.

It is all change at the top of the Wednesday league. Griffs (John Rawlings) went top after they roared to an 18-shot trouncing of The Alex (George Newing), who drop down to fourth.

Gravediggers (John Scott) moved into second after a one-shot victory against Combine (Len Chubb).

Previous leaders Poachers (Bob Newell) looked set for an easy victory but conceded six shots in the final three ends and only tied with Park Lane (Alan Greenhouse).

There were comfortable wins for Assassins (Steve Harper) and The Royals (Les Wilkinson).

Friday trophy holders Toromos (Arthur Newland) boosted their shot difference as they held on to the top spot with a runaway 26-shot victory against Fareways (Ken George).

Chasing hard are Wickers (Tom Edgerller), who held on to win by four shots against Standons (Ted Coward).

New Team (Alan Sprake) are also in the hunt as they scored 11 shots in the final three ends to beat early season leaders Waverley (Dave Wildman) by seven shots.

It looks to be a one-horse race in the Tuesday day league.

Unbeaten defending trophy holders Black Top Boys (Bob Floyd) chalked up a 12-shot victory against Pembroke (Stan Lincoln) and now hold a six-point lead.
