TT1011, Week 24
Always a sociable if tough night against the mighty Sparrows of Britannia, formerly of Norbridge parish. Straight into it with a showdown between the two highest scorers in division 3, their Colin against our Ed. Tight match, Ed goes 2-1 up, Colin levels and nails the decider. That's why he's top of the shop.
Wasn't Rene's night, losing out to on-form John in a really close match and going home with no points. Andy also came unstuck against big Colin but did well to get past John and Bill, who initially annihilated Ed before going down 3-2, Ed digging furiously.
With each match going to home then away in sequence, Defiants were guaranteed a doubles win. Inevitably Andy and Ed lost.
Tip of the hat to Michael Williams, playing for Manor Club on another table: he triumped in the IDTTL championships at the weekend, putting out Ed in the semis before going on to win the division 3 singles.
