Division Four


All matches in the 2023/24 season have now been completed and I am pleased to report that Syston 4 have won the division, with Knighton Park 11 securing Runners Up

The Syston 4 squad of Martin Bolton (100%), Ian Lockington (78.85%), Scott Morris (77.27%), Ajay Lad (72.73%) and Silvanus Ward (66.67% from 3 games) overcame close competition from Knighton Park 11 and Leicester Electricity 2. Syston 4 amassed 80 points during the season, closely followed by Knighton Park 11 on 78 points and Electricity 2 on 76 points

John Quadri (95.45%), Sirawuth Tubchote (94.44%) and Emanuele Carriero (85.19%) were the driving force behind Knighton Park 11's challenge, well supported by Jason Wong (61.54%) and Aadil Kokate (43.59%). Electricity 2's top performers were Steve White (91.23%) and Shokat Makhani (91.11%) backed up with Dave Silvester (68..09%) together with Dave Greasley and Graham Piggin completing the squad.

Congratulations to all three teams providing such a close competition.

At the other end of the table, Fleckney 2 finished at the bottom but had a good victory over Regent Sports, and a draw against Fleckney 3 during their campaign. Keep battling on and most importantly, enjoying the game!

On the individual front, it is Martin Bolton of Syston 4 that takes the title with a very impressive 100% from 46 games. Making a comeback after a layoff period, and having previously played in higher Divisions it was no surprise to see Martin do well, but to be unbeaten against a variety of abilities and styles is an excellent achievement. John Quadri of Knighton Park 11 came second on 95.45% having only 2 defeats in 44 games (against Martin Bolton and Steve White of Electricity 2)

Three other players were in the >90% category, being Steve White (91.23%) and Shokat Makhani (91.11%) of Electricity 2, and Sirawuth Tubchote of Knighton Park 11 (94.44% but not qualifying due to insufficient games played).

Congratulations to the winners, but from comments received, I get the feeling that everyone has enjoyed their experience of playing in this division, regardless of results which makes it a successful season for everybody.

Thanks and Regards, Ian

Happy New Year to one and all and welcome back to the second half of the season


Week Commencing 8/1/24


Nomads 1 Vs Winstanley 4

A good home win here for Nomads with Terry Wale stepping up to help out.

Laszlo had the longest night, losing in the 5th to Sam Leake, and winning both of his other two 11-9 in the 4th leg


Knighton Park 11 Vs Regent Sports

A good max from Jason Wong led the KP side to victory, supported by John Quadri winning two (and conceding the last game against Zelko) and Aadil Kokate winning one (losing in the 5th leg in the other two games). KP also conceded the doubles enabling Regent to leave with a point.


Fleckney 3 Vs KP 12

Muhammad Afaq led the way with a max for KP helped with a brace from Mohammed Abowath and one from Fathia Muhali

Nathan Ogden for the home side won 2, one from Andy Haddon plus the doubles gained Fleckney a point in this 4-6 defeat


Syston 4 Vs KP 9

KP 9's resistance wasn't strong enough to avoid a whitewash by the dominant Syston 4 side

Martin Bolton, still undefeated this season in Div 4 scored a good 3 straight max, with Ajay Lad and Ian Lockington also both winning 3 but losing the odd set along the way. Hamza Caratela put up most resistance on the night but lost out in the 5th set to Ajay and the 4th to Ian


KP 10 Vs Fleckney 2

Fleckneys Pete Wilson was grateful to win a singles game and the doubles with Lee Towers for their 2 in this 8-2 defeat, although Jacob Hall was unfortunate to lose two games in the 5th set. Maximums for KP's Tony Scarborough and Mike Smith gave them 4 points in this match.


Holwell 2 Vs Electricity 2

One game each for Tim Smith, Dave Sharpe and Jeff Jarvis, plus the doubles secured 4 wins and a point for Holwell against the strong Electricity team. Shokat  Makhani and Steve White for the visitors both came away with their max's for the 6-4 victory


Regards, Ian

03 Nov

We are 6 weeks into the season and the table is beginning to take shape

Three teams share the lead with 18 points each, 4 wins out of 5 and 1 draw each with only the sets won defining the league position

These 3 teams are Knighton Park 11, Syston 4 and Fleckney 3

So far, neither of these teams have played each other which will make for interesting reading over the next few weeks


Knighton Park 11 have beaten Regent 1, Winstanley 4, Fleckney 2 and Knighton Park 9, and their draw came against Electricity 2 where Electricitys Steve Whites maximum caused them difficulties.


Syston 4 have won against Knighton Park 9, Regent 1, Knighton Park 10 and Winstanley 4. Their draw came against Holwell 2 although Martin Bolton didn't play for the hosts in that game.


Fleckney 3's victories have been against Electricity 2, Fleckney 2, Knighton Park 12  and Knighton Park 9. The draw was against Winstanley 4


On the individuals table, there is a battle for top spot between Steve White (12 wins from 12), Martin Bolton (8 from 8), Scott Morris (6 from 6) and Robert Palmer (3 from 3)


Not surprisingly, Steves 100% has also earned him most Player of the Match honours so far with 4.

Emanuele Carriero. Laszlo Kocsis and Martin Bolton follow on 3, whilst Callum Harbidge, David Reid. Jeffrey Jarvis and Scott Morris have 2 each.



Comments received so far include 


Holwell  (9) Vs (1) Fleckney 2 

Pete Wilson of Fleckney - The only bright spots from the evening was Jacob’s (Hall) win over Tim (Smith) and the friendliness of the opposition.  We continue to learn but it is putting it into practice!


KP 10 Vs KP 9

Tony Scarborough of KP 10 - KP9 came out on top last night. Man of the match was Avi Morjaria for KP9 playing his first season in this division.


KP 10 Vs Syston 4

Tony Scarborough of KP 10 - A couple of close games but a resounding defeat for KP who were a player short


Fleckney 3 Vs Fleckney 2

Pete Wilson of Fleckney 2 - Not an unexpected result but it was a competitive evening if you check out the number of games that were won by just 2 points.  That is becoming a recurring theme. My side, me included, need to get better at turning that the other way. Mike (Wilson) was clearly MoM, certainly from our stance given his Max.
