VICTORY Hall A, the defending champions, clicked into gear when they started another campaign in the Knutsford Friday League's top-flight.

They dropped only three chalks in a comfortable home win against Cranford A.

Three teams - Mere A, Railway A and Swettenham A - have won both their opening matches.

Mere B were the leading scorers in Division Two when they fell a single chalk short of a full house at home to Church Inn A.

It was a better night for Church Inn B, who posted a total of 162 when they brushed aside their guests from Chelford B.
