Team Captain Alan Greaves reports:
Another good win for Lichfield 2 against second place Ashbourne 2 in the Derbyshire Division 5 League. Result 3 – 2 win for Lichfield adding another 17 points to the total.
The team in playing order was Steve Coppard, Ben Estaugh, Rob Lord, Mike Alan and Alan Greaves.
Alan returned to the side to replace the injured Richard Coulthard and scored a fairly easy 3 nil win over his opponent.
Despite an initial marking decision that caused some controversy, it was Mike who kept his composure in his match to record a straightforward 3-0 win’
Rob was the worse for wear following a late night drinking spree and was found wanting by his very fit opponent and lost 3 – 1.
Ben’s game was fast and furious with Ben making a few mistakes with his drop shots but still ran out the winner 3 nil.
Then it was our late stand in player from the first team Mr Coppard. First game losing 3 – 9 after being 8 nil down, second game winning 9 – 0. Third and forth game honours even 9 – 6 and 6 – 9. The last game turned into an epic with Alan running out of paper to record the results. The game was hard fought with Steve serving for the match 3 times but in the end lost the final game 8 – 10.
Great result lads that puts us back on the top of the league – well played!!
