Biggleswade chalked up their first Herts League win of the season with a 3-2 success at home to Hertford side Haileybury.

Simon Gray at number five had a comfortable 3-0 victory against Paul Gandolfo while Dan Easton at number four had an even more assured 3-0 win over Karl Pye – restricting his opponent to seven points or less in each game.

Owen Ledger at number three fought hard to come back to 1-1 against Daniel Gandolfo before going down 3-1.

Ade Vijoen at number one had a close contest against Adam Long with Ade receiving warnings from the marker for some of his antics. After a fierce struggle Ade went down 15-11 in the fifth to lose 3-1.

Jay Ledger at number two after winning the first game relatively comfortably found himself 2-1 down before showing good determination to win 3-2 and secure Biggleswade their first Herts League victory, taking 17 points to Haileybury’s 8. Next up is Nuffield II away.

Biggleswade repeated that 3-2 scoreline in the Beds League over LDSC II on Monday.

First up was Matt Bruce at number five aiming for his maiden victory and took a 2-0 lead against Terry but then lost his way, and temper, to go down 3-2.

LDSC II arrived a man short resulting in Nathan Bascom, due to make his debut, gaining a walkover. With the in-form Rich Anthony unavailable Martin Wright stepped up to number three and went down in straight games.

Marcus Gray at number two returned to winning ways, 3-1 over Scott and Dan Easton completed the win with a straight games victory, avenging the defeat to LDSCII in the opening game of the season.

Biggleswade have now won three and lost four. They face David Lloyd away next week.
