St. Andrews “E” v Hawks “G” – 31st October

Team: Charlotte S, Lily, Hannah B, Richard, Graham, Harry.
Result: Won 10-8

Despite a week off, the “rubies” fought a nail-biting away match against the only undefeated side in the division to steal a satisfying victory. Very close games early on for Harry and Hannah set the scene for the night and after the levels the hosts were 5-3 up with Graham and Lily frustrated not to take both their games. Our third pair (H & H) stormed through with confidence in event 6 to level the scores 6 all. Hawks responded strongly to edge 8-6 up before Charlotte and Richard made hard work of leveling the scores once again at 8-8. Under pressure and with a chance to redeem themselves, Graham and Lily didn’t disappoint, delivering a cool 15-13 win before really “getting in the groove” with a triumphant match winning 15-4 final game. Heaps of effort all round – got to keep the pressure on now!

St Andrews D vs Clayton Crusaders B

Team : Sam, Colin, Josh, Lucy, Anne, Hannah P

Result : Win 13-5

Clayton Crusaders had not lost so far this season, so to win and pick up 4 points was a great result. Sam Pattison Star was best on the night for us with a maximum 6. The match was much tighter than the score line suggests as their top pair conceded their final set due to injury.  After dropping games throughout the match we needed Sam and Lucy to win the their last 2 games in order to grab all 4 points and they duly obliged Smile. Everybody picked up games so a good effort all round, and the captain promises to hit the shuttle with the big stringy part of his racket instead of the frame next match Eye rolling smile.


Next Up : Thursday 17th of November

St Andrews D vs Preston College B

Team : Sam, Colin, Josh, Lucy, Anne, Hannah P

Result : 15-3 Win D5

The balance of oldsters and youngsters is still working at the moment as we managed another convincing win. Best on the night was Hannah Pallett with her first maximum 6 for the D Team, so congratulations to her Star, I’m sure there will be more to come. Sam (sleepy cheeky monkey head), Josh, Lucy and Anne (most improved from last week) all managed 5 wins.

Rant: There must be a rule about serving slowly, it was driving me crazy, its not like it was even worth the wait!
