Week eight in the Andover Pool League saw another unbeaten record fall as the Demon’s came to haunt the Charlotte.

The Premier Divisione looks set for a fascinating second half of the season with three teams in the hunt. Ben Day’s Demons welcomed Queen Charlotte off the back of last week’s win over Arms B and yet again they upset the odds, clinching another 5-4 win to put themselves on the heels of the leaders.

Arms B moved level with the Charlotte with a 9-0 romp over Royal Oak. Arms A weren’t far off the top three as they won 6-3 away at The Arms.

Central remained bottom with another defeat, losing 6-3 at Clatford, and the other match saw QCCs win 5-4 at home to the FD.

Battle Stations were finally sunk after their good run as Hurstbourne A won 5-4 to move into third. Anton Harts go second and two points adrift with a thumping 8-1 win at bottom side Arms ‘n’ Legs.

The Fatties travelled to Lucky Tavern and picked up a 6-3 win to stay in touch at the top, while Prince Regent’s inconsistent form continued as they lost 5-4 away at Shire Sharp Shooters.

The result of the week went to Richard Clarke’s QC Beebies who bounced back from consecutive heavy defeats with an 8-1 win away at the Folly to get their season back on track.

Folly Flyers glided into top spot of Division 2 with an 8-1 over the previous leaders, New Street FC and Railway Club kept themselves in contention with a 5-4 win over Merlin Massive.

Wooly B52s slipped up at home to Helen Turner’s New St Masters and in the other match, Central Mankinis won 6-3 at home to Wolversdene Warriors.

Division 3 saw Hurstbourne B hold on to top spot despite losing 6-3 at Eagle Leftovers.

Plougher Rangers sat second thanks to a 7-2 win at bottom side Central Hedgehogs.

Tavern A Laugh headed out to HBT Players and came away with a 7-2 win to move above their opponents, while Ploughin On went clear of the bottom winning 7-2 at home to Global Warriors.

Lamb Chops A remained the only unbeaten side courtesy of a bye, but they were leapfrogged by Wyke Down and Outs who won 5-4 against the Arms Snipers.

There were 5-4 wins for both Swallow sides. Andy Newman continued his unbeaten season as the Smash Heads won 5-4 at home to rock bottom Sambuca Squad while the Wreck Heads won at Slippery Stranger.

Lamb Chop B moved above the danger zone with a 7-2 win over Clatford.

In Division 5 it remained close at the top.

Town Mills Touching Cloth lead the way thanks to a 7-2 win at Barbarians who still look for a first win.

Kings and Queens would have gone top had they won, but they lost 6-3 at Chute who moved above the Royal Oak Beavers who lost 8-1 to Central Saints.

In the other match, Station Phoenix won 5-4 at Foresters Chess Club to go third.
