Horsham Central League 2016-17 Week 1

Week 1 – 7/10/16

It was great to see the league back in action, and there was plenty of action in the first week. There was a good standard of play demonstrated thought the matches. A strong Horsham Spinners team played well to win 7-2 versus Horsham A. Mark Weston and Jacob Evans were too strong on the night for Ed Cozens, who had to settle for one win. Owen Brown and Will Michell won all 3 of their matches, and will be ones to watch out for. Seb Dunkley will undoubtedly be determined to improve his match sharpness in coming matches, but did not register a win on this outing.

In the Crawley vs Storrington match, there were promising signs from the young players on both sides. Melissa Berry competed well to win against Jack Hallums, and although only registering one win, pushed James Anderson to five sets in the last game of the night. Ahmad did not register a win this time, but took some good sets from the Storrington players. Connor went to five sets in two of his matches, and converted these to wins to register points for Crawley. James Anderson registered two wins for the Storrington team, with his persistence paying off in both five-setters. Jack Hallums won one game in the fifth set against Ahmad. An experienced Keith Anderson won all 3 of his games without dropping a set. The final score Crawley 3, Storrington 6.

In the Horsham B vs Horsham C, honours were even, with two wins each, and a player missing from each side. Linus Li showed some deft pen hold strokes to win against his two opponents. Chris Goodier pushed Linus to the fifth set, but had to settle with a comfortable win over Oscar Perkins. Oscar was unfortunate not to get more from his match against Nicko Owen, who had enough to get over the line in five sets. Linus proved too strong for Nicko. Final score 2-2, with the missing players back for week 2 to help the teams register some points. 

A good first week of games, and plenty more action to follow in week 2!
