RAYNE COCK and Chelmsford City B are the two divisional pacemakers after the first couple of weeks of the Ridley League season - and once again, the North Section looks like developing into a rare old free-for-all.

A 12-3 whipping of the Black Horse, founded on another 6-1 singles score, suggests the Cock's dartsmen will give the Retreat and Flitch Snooker B another run for their money. The Retreat, who've dropped only one singles point to date, notched a whitewash at Bardfield Vine.

They share second place with Flitch A, a point behind the Cock, with the Black Lion edging Flitch B into fifth. The Vine, having drawn the short straw by facing the Cock and the Retreat in their first two matches, owe their dominoes players a pat on the back for keeping them within sight of the leaders.

CCFC B chalked up another big South Section win at the expense of the Cricketers, who will have been disappointed at not matching their first week's form. Alan Morton was a 180 scorer as the City slickers piled up the points, including a second successive dommies whitewash.

That helped them take over at the top from the Black Bull, who had to fight all the way against City's A team. In the end, the mixed pairs point was all that separated the sides.

Despite the postal dispute, all the match sheets got through - except that from the Swan-Bird in Hand, the result of which will settle who's holding the rest up this week.
