Comment and Info from Paul Eastham:
Team: Charlotte S, Lily, Hannah B, Richard, Harry, Robert.
Result: Won 11-7
Another good away win and creditable E team debut for Robert with a 15-1 first game!The men split their sets and the ladies dragged us back to 6-2 after the levels. Games were won by all, including great performances by Hannah and Charlotte (who each got 5 games) and four close games for Harry and Lily finishing the night with a fab 15-13 final game win. A really friendly Evergreens team but “no mercy” next time!
Team : Dave N, Josh, Sam, Helen A, Hannah P, Lucy
Result: 9-9 Draw
Juggled the pack tonight as we had our usual Tuesday night availability nightmare, so a big thanks to Dave, Helen and Hannah for turning out tonight. I was one of the non attendees, so report comes from my roving reporter Mark.
A very creditable draw against an experienced team, with everyone contributing games to the overall result. Big Sam got us a massive 6 playing at three, and a huge shout for Josh and Hannah winning their last game to tie the match. Nerves of steel! What a great effort from those two.

Result:0 –18 Win
Very good result this week, with some help from our super subs Helen and Charlotte.
With the heatwave that we had this week, it made the hall at MGS very hot and tested some players temperaments (not from St Andrews) After a verbal exchange between two of the opposition with each other, it made for a bad atmosphere on court. Luckily it was towards the end of the match, so we didn’t have to suffer it for too long! When the game is meant to be played in good spirit, it’s not something that we hope will be repeated.
Team: Graham, Richard, Harry, Hannah P, Charlotte S, Hannah B
Result: Won 16-2
Young Hannah B had a brilliant debut to league badminton playing at number three and came within two points of taking all her 6 games. Little and large at no. 1 pairing dropped the other game so Richard and Charlotte were the stars with their 6 games each.
This was a confidence boosting win but there are tougher matches to come.
