There have been some great matches this week. G2 and G3 both managed strong victories but this has been overshadowed by three questions I will pose later on and await answers from the members.
The courts were looking good also…..
On Tuesday night the Gents 2nds required a strong victory to set up a potential promotion opportunity. The visitors were Springwells who are in a decent mid table position. The good news was young Harrison was returning and keen to showcase his skills aboard the showcourt with his Auld Da. This left Max & Gaz at 2 and Capt Jim & Willie at 3rd. We had high hopes of a strong performance.
We were right. Team Carmichael managed a 3 set victory in a decent encounter, Max & Gaz dug out a 2-1 victory and down in Happy Valley Jim & Willie overcame stout resistance to chalk up 3 set win. An 8-1 victory was way better than Capt Jim could hope for. Roll on Thursday and the final game when another strong victory is the order of the day.
Wednesday night saw the Gents 3rd team in a local derby with Craighelen. Could Wizzo’s warriors get one up on the local rivals?
Yes they could.
In a break from tradition the Lobsters played at 1 down in Happy Valley and in an epic encounter they just lost out 2 sets to 1 to a strong Craighelen couple. Wizzo and the Spinmeister Gordon Kydd efficiently dispatched their guys ( including Arthur who was spying for us by playing for Craighelen) leaving the stage to the Young Team of Callum & El Frazo.
They lost the first set, took the second on a tie break but then stamped their authority on the match to take the 3rd set 6-3. The boys thrive on an audience and showed it again tonight. Well done guys.
A great 6-3 victory in a derby match.
