Report From Dave Burridge
Mid Lancs Double Victory
The new Inter league season started with a double header in Southport with our 2nd and 4th teams taking on their Southport league equivalents. The Sunday evening start, coupled with a long trek to Birkdale, wasn’t too popular with some of our team who favoured a more relaxing Sunday!
In the contest between 2nd teams, Lisa Coultard proved too strong for Hannah Burgess in the singles. Chris Chu and Andy Owen were keen to take on the singles with Chris reportedly having a warm up session before arriving! Unusually we had 3 men wanting to play singles and a 4th willing, if pressed! Chris enjoyed local bragging rights with an emphatic victory over Rob Courtley. Andy Owen also won comfortably against Southport’s promising youngster Josh Wilkie.
