Team: Baz,Daz ,Dave ,Val, Lucy H , Janette
Result:14 –4 Win
A great start the season considering all the team were blighted by injury or infection!! After splitting the first mens game it looked like it might be a bit of an uphill battle, but we pressed on, just showing that experience rather than fitness got us through!! Special mention to Lucy Halsall who pulled Daz out of the quagmire a few times! Good win…lets hope we can keep it up 🙂
Team: Lily, Hannah, Charlotte S, Richard, Graham, Harry.
Result: Won 13-5
The Ruby team made an excellent start to the season away at St Peters which is not an easy venue for St Andrews players due to the low ceiling . After a shaky start by the men, the ladies showed their superiority leaving us 6-2 up after the levels. St Peters pulled back to 7-5 but after getting used to the venue and the opposition we finished strongly taking the last 6 games to come away with maximum points. Everyone did their bit but Hannah deserves a special mention taking all her 6 games.
Team : Sam, Josh, Colin, Lucy, Lily, Charlotte S
Result: 16-2 Win
A comprehensive win, and what a great start to the season. I think Clitheroe were fielding a slightly inexperienced side, but we still had to beat them. 6 games each for Sam, Lucy and Colin, with Sam and Lucy racking up two 15-0 games playing their mixed games. Thanks to the players from the “Ruby” Division who helped us out.
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.

Closest result so far, but the win was never really in doubt. We wiped out the 60 point head start in the first 3 sets and our opponents were always behind after that despite taking 5 games from us. Sam and Lucy were best on the night winning all their games. On to the Final!

Juggled the pack a bit this week and we got off to a very shaky start, but it all turned out OK in the end. Ladies were strong as usual, well done to Dave, Janet and Charlotte for getting their 6. Now all we need to do is win our last match 37-0 and we will be champions.
