Brampton had an easy 32-shot home win over West End, taking all 10 points in the Carliol Thursday League.

Despite being only sixth of eight in the current league table, they must be favourites to take the title this season as they do have two games in hand of several of the clubs.

However, their main challengers could be Courtfield, currently in second place, who also have a game in hand of most but crucially still have to meet Brampton at River Street.

Courtfield beat Wetheral at home last week by 30 shots but lost four points to the visitors, both losses coming on the last ends.

That defeat sees Dalston move into pole position. They enjoyed a 32-shot home win over Stanwix and, like Brampton, took all 10 points.

Subscription, currently in third place, had a 12-shot home win against lowly Holme Head but the visitors managed to sneak two of the points.

In the Friday League, Courtfield continue to show improved form after a poor start to the season, and their trip to Dalston proved fruitful as they won 8-2, and by 29 shots.

Stanwix, despite losing by just eight shots, went down 8-2 to visitors Wetheral.

Subscription beat West End by 12 shots but the visitors collected three points, while the Brampton v Holme Head games was cancelled.
