Basement boys Blades welcomed the league leaders Bury Saxons who were protecting their 8 match winning run this season.
Sparkling performances from Andy (Only on Wednesdays) Withers & Joe (Forgetful ) Easdown meant that Blades pulled off a shock 6-4 victory with them both getting hatricks. Joe went on an end of season break 7 years ago & has just remembered to come back!
The pick of the night was the epic encounter between Withers & Mark James both protecting 100% records for the season. Withers edged a monumental struggle in 5 winning 11-8, 11-13, 14-12, 8-11, 11-9.
Joes forehand loop was in sparkling form all evening and he managed to win all 3 matches in straight sets.
Saxons picked up points with them all beating Martin (Whipping boy) O’Leary much to the disgust of injured non playing captain Pete (One leg) Kemp and then a fine performance from Mark James & Tom Coleman in the doubles.
