Frederick Jacombs 6 – Colebridge Hawks 4. Wednesday 29th October - Match report by Neil Wheatley.
This was the home team’s first match of the season, but it was Hawks who looked out of practice when they gave the home team a 4-0 start. Indeed it took the doubles for Hawks to get their first games on the board, although the new pairing of John Cox and Neil Wheatley still lost in 5.
Having lost to Dave Linz in match 3, Neil abandoned his hearing aids and revived Hawks’ spirits with a resounding 3-0 against Barry Sterling and followed it with a similar performance against last season’s individual winner, Mark Georgevic, dropping just one game. John Cox and Mick Welsh then rounded off proceedings with hard fought victories over Linz and Sterling respectively.
