||Another convincing win for Mold Men's C Team. Team selection was Jeff Price & Keith Ellis , Peter Jones & Tomos Hughes. Injury news ... Steve Mcalpine had a leg injury for this match so decided to rest him...Dave Green was unavailable for this week and Jamie Hogg was helping out the B Team due to player shortage. It was delayed start due to the Captain arriving late ... a regular occurrence at the moment due to work commitments !
didn't help him having the match balls !
Anyway on to the match......
After a brief warm up both matches got underway. It was clear from the outset that a win was on the cards. With a mix of youth and experience Peter and Tomos cruised to victory against the number 2 pair. The depth and accuracy of Tomos's ground strokes making Pete's job at the net a walk in the park. Peter benefiting from his new rackets giving him more consistency in his all round game. They maintained their form against number ones and ran out easy winners losing only 8 games over both matches. Jeff & Keith won easily with the opposition unable to cope with Keith top spin. They are yet to be tested this season and it will be interesting to see if they can raise their game if needed in future matches. Earliest finish this season 8.15pm. Both teams were then treated to freshly made sandwiches courtesy of Jayne ... Jeff's wife and a few corny jokes from Pete and Jeff in the clubhouse.The sandwiches were polished off by our team and then offered to the B team. Pete made a coffee and Walnut cake ( it was a good bake) as Paul Hollywood would say... Think we'll have to grab him for the Daniel Owen centre :-)
Next fixture Hooton away on Monday next week.
