DTH Redlands Fluffy Toys have started this season where they left last season, on top of Division One.

They won both of their opening matches 10-0, first sweeping aside newly promoted Manton Tigers thanks to Tom McIntosh, Tom Wesley and Peter Cowburn.

Next up were Stanley Street A and the Toys trio of Peter Cowburn, Richard Wesley and Steve Johnson all registered comfortable hat-tricks with Johnson and Cowburn taking the doubles.

Club colleagues The Roosters have also won their opening two games.

Their first win came away at Ryton Park Adders with Dave Gascoyne, Steve Fox and Rick Harris running out 8-2 winners.

They were pushed all the way by Stanley Street A, but picked up a 6-4 victory.

Fox remained undefeated with Harris adding two wins before Dave Gascoyne beat Dave Hodgkin.

Peter Eyre with two, Alex Millward and the doubles accounted for Street A’s points.

Redlands Joggers and Ryton Park Adders registered their first point in a 5-5 draw.

The Joggers, promoted from Division One last season, had Steve Walker and Lea Dickinson to thank as Walker registered a hat-trick and Dickinson had good wins over Worksop League debutants Gary Sides and Ivan Guilliatt.

For the Adders, both Sides and Guilliatt added solo wins over Lewis Comley, with Matt Lemon doing the same before defeating Dickinson in straight sets and then teaming up with Guilliatt to win the doubles.

In Division Three Stanley Streets Rascals made it two wins from two to remain at the top with a 7-3 win at Ryton Park Falcons, Thomas Gladwin winning all his three games.
