Mens 2nd – A Better Start!

After a disappointing 2013 season for the Mens 2nd team, including relegation back to division 2 of the short format league. It was an excellent start to 2014, on a rainy Thursday, with an 8-4 victory over Southwell.

With a few regulars missing, two of the team were making their debuts and I’m pretty sure both Rob Harwood and Nick Robinson will have enjoyed the success of each taking 3 out of 4 sets in their respective pairings.

After the first 2 rubbers it looked like being a very close encounter with the scores tied at 3-3. However during the 2 set finale, Ravenshead took control winning 5 of the last 6 sets. Top pair Tom Lockey and John Clissold had a share of the spoils (4-6, 7-6) with a Southwell pair that only dropped a total of 3 games in their first 2 sets. In addition, second pair Rick Drury and Rob Harwood and third pair Stuart Boddington and Nick Robinson had very impressive wins taking both of their last two sets comfortably.

Lets hope this is the start of another promotion campaign 😉
