Blades win the Junior National Team Trophy

James Smith turned around a seemingly hopeless situation in the final match to enable Blades to win the Junior National team Trophy against Grantham College.

Grantham went 2-0 up after Matt Leete beat Josh Bennett in five 11-7, 11-5, 9-11, 6-11, 11-8 and Joe Clark defeated James Smith in four 7-11, 11-9, 15-13, 11-9.

George Hazell started the fightback with a 3-1 win 11-9, 9-11, 11-7, 11-7 over Olly Tyndall, and it was 2-2 when Josh beat Clarke in three close games 11-8, 14-12, 13-1.

With Leete leading Smith 2-0, it looked as if Grantham had it won, but Smith staged a brilliant fightback, winning it 3 games to 2, 8-11, 9-11, 11-5, 13-11, 11-9 to bring the Trophy to Crawley & Horsham.
