In Sunday’s games the ladies ‘A’, like their ‘B’ side went down 4-2, a 17.55 average earning Jacqueline Maiden the match award. Although the men’s ‘A’ lost 7-5 the result was enough to give West Midlands a slender 19-17 overall victory for the weekend to lift them off the foot of the table, up two places to eighth with a game in hand on four of the seven teams above them.
