Winter league update

With two rounds to go, the top places in the Cornwall winter league have changed again. It's still a tight race, however, and there's all to play for.

New leaders in the competition are Ray Beresford and Susan Williamson, with a total of nine wins from the 12 games played so far. Last month's leaders, Simon Penna and Rob Sullivan, also have nine wins but didn't show for round 4 so missed out on two vital league points and slip to second place. (League points are awarded to teams for wins but also for each appearance.)

Third, up from fifth after the last round, are Pete 'PD' Downing and Graeme Kirkham, with eight wins. Also on eight wins and with the same number of league points are Richard Lapworth and Arnaud Ruetsch, down from third last month; they fall behind because of a slightly smaller points difference.

In fifth place, up one from sixth and with seven wins, are Sue Hardy and Markku Hypponen. Behind them come two teams on six wins: Andrew and Sarah Jarvis lie sixth, down from fourth, with a league points advantage over seventh-place Anthony Frost and Rod Walker.

Five wins give Pete English and Roy Pemberton eighth place, down one from the last round.

Round 5 of the winter league will be held at the Star Inn, St Day, on Sunday 9 February. Fingers crossed for better weather than today's torrential rain!
