The first week of the League matches saw Yarcons “A” notch up an 8 – 2 victory over Kings Eagles. Cliff Fraser had good wins over Martyn Clarke and Mike Woolston but could not defeat Matt Current who scored a hat trick. A good all round win for the Yarcons team.
Two man Yarcons Police just lost out to Yarcons Dynamos 4 – 6. Good play by Nicky Calver with two for the losers.
A great tussle when Mill Lane ENX met St Johns. Several of the games went to five sets. Frank Hayward was unlucky losing by a two point margin in each of his matches. Paul Wright as expected won his three, but star of the night must be Wally Ladmore who with two of his matches going the distance he won them both on deuce giving him a well-deserved maximum. The doubles produced some high quality hitting from all four players and ended with victory for the home team. Score 4 – 6.
Mill Lane and Broadland B with only two players each ended in 5 – 0 to Mill Lane team.
Yarcons “B” started their season with a 4 – 6 loss to Broadland “A” who had Kit Marsden in good form. First division teams are reminded that they can “bring up” players to help out if they are unable to field three registered players.
