BOLEHILL INSTITUTE No 2 emerged as new leaders in the A Division this week thanks to a fine 5-0 away win at the Matlock Club.
At the same time Keith Robertson also gained his fifth consecutive league win and now heads the individual rankings outright.

Previous pacesetters PJz Ripley No 1 were hit by a breakdown en route to their match at Bolehill No 1 so that pair will have to try again in a few weeks' time.

Last years runners-up the Edgefold Club are finding things tougher so far this campaign and succumbed 4-1 at Belper Strutt Club No 1. Martyn Taylor and Neil Parkinson avoided the whitewash in the doubles with a 1pt success while Paul Jarrett and Steve Bullock top scored for the home team.

Matlock Golf Club continued to take the B Division by storm, scoring a 4-1 victory over Belper's Jaxx Q Club No 2. Graham Jones hit breaks of 32 and 25 in his impressive haul of 110 points.

The No 1 team from Jaxx Q Club went second, also winning 4-1 over PJz Ripley No 2 with Steve Robinson scoring a brace of 21 breaks and Trevor Hames opening his account in the league for the visitors after doing the same in the six red cup last week.

Martin Forster was on top form for Bolehill No 3, winning both his singles and doubles matches in yet another 4-1 verdict, over Belper Strutt Club No 2.

League week five results: Matlock Club 0, Bolehill Inst No 2 5; Belper Strutt Club No 1 4, Edgefold Club Matlock 1; Matlock Golf Club 4, Jaxx Q Club Belper No 2 1; Jaxx Q Club Belper No 1 4, PJ'z Club Ripley No 2 1; Bolehill Inst No 3 4, Belper Strutt Club No 2 1.
