Mens team win local derby.

The Ravenshead Men’s 1st team has avenged two defeats by Mansfield in 2008 and 2011 with an 11-7 win in the Nott’s Summer League Division 3.  The win mantains the unbeaten start to the season and puts the team on course for a promotion challenge to Division 2.

The key to success is the ability of all 3 pairs to pickup sets.  1st pair Chris Holmes and Barry Seamons won all 6 sets, causing Mansfield’s Niral Nana to drop his first sets against us in our last 3 meetings.  The 2nd and 3rd pairs of Craig Flint/Arthur Buckley and Eddie Blount/Tom Riley both battled their way to 2.5 sets each with some hard fought 6-4 and 7-5 wins.

The match was played in good spirits as the teams know each other pretty well now.
