Phillips Cup Winners

Team : Sam, Lucy, Dave, Janet, Colin, Charllotte

Result : Win 230 – 136.

Brilliant result, St Andrews D totally dominated the match despite St Peter having 5 serves to 2 and a 90 point start. Not a single game was dropped and the 90 point deficit was wiped out at the start of the 5th set and the match won by the 8th set. Thanks to the players for an exceptional cup run. I can honestly say that apart from the 1st round I thought we were up for some tough matches, but we really pulled out great performances and have not been in danger in any of the last 3 games. Well done to everyone.

15 – 3

St Andrews E v Evergreens C

Result: Draw 9 all

Team:  Josh Graham Stuart Charlotte Anne Hannah
It was 4 all after the levels – due entirely to the ladies efforts!
However, due to the strength of our ladies it  looked like we had a chance to  do something in the mixed and so it proved. 
We got to 8 all with Graham and Anne to play their No 1 couple who had been well beaten by Josh and Charlotte – so we fancied our chances.
We took the first one but could not make it two –  another chance for glory missed. 
However  a draw  away to a team 4th in the league was still a creditable result.
This team could be fighting for promotion next season if the younger members keep improving and the older one can keep going.

St Andrews E v Clayton Crusaders C

Team: Josh Graham Stuart Katie Anne Hannah

This was a tough match against good opponents.

We took an early lead after the mens and ladies doubles but their first mixed pairwere too good for us and they got back to 8 all.

Well done Josh and Katie for holding their nerve to pull us through to win 10-8,  but above all  this was a good team performance as everyone won 3 or 4 games.
