BUBWITH are the first team to be confirmed as champions in the Fulford Ladies Invitational Tennis League.

They maintained their 100 per cent record to claim the division six title after a 69-39 victory over Appleton Roebuck.

This included a 30-game haul from Anna Airaksinen and the league’s top games scorer, Louise Smith, who has amassed 332 games for the champions.

Wigginton 2’s promotion hopes were dented after a heavy defeat to Sheriff Hutton.

Wilberfoss stay strong contenders to go up with Bubwith as they remain in second place.

Louise Lister and Sarah Dwyer racked up 30 of York 1’s 84-game total against Pocklington to keep the Clifton Park club top of division one.

They are being chased hard by Castlegarth and Dunnington, who have matches in hand.

Poppleton remain second after edging past David Lloyd 55-53.

The top two teams met in division two, where Fulford 1 came out as 69-39 winners over Bishopthorpe.

Fulford 2 and Knaresborough continue to struggle at the foot of the table, the former suffering a 67-41 defeat at Dunnington to leave them in the relegation zone.

Things remain tight at the top of division four with only three points separating the top four teams.

Popp 2 jumped into top spot after defeating Bish 2.

David Lloyd celebrated two victories this weekend, one against former leaders Riccall and the other against struggling Bish 2.

Fulford 3’s 67-41 loss to Tollerton leaves them just above the relegation slots having played more matches than the teams around them.

The leading teams in division three, Cliffe and Appleton, both suffered defeats to Boston Spa 2 and Wigginton respectively.

Kate Pirie and Yvonne Malthouse teamed up to take 29 games for Boston.

Appleton moved into top spot after victory in a rescheduled match.

Rowntree Park are third following a 60-48 victory over Copmanthorpe 1, who are now bottom.

New Earswick remain top of division five despite suffering their first defeat of the season, going down 59-49 to Heworth, who climbed from sixth to third position after victories in rescheduled matches.
