Rebels continue to flourish in this Divisional Cup format, making it 3 wins out of 3 beating Spin Doctors 7-2 and now are only 2nd because the leaders have played 1 extra match, rebels 4 points behind with a game in hand.
Laurence Taylor was POM for the rebels winning both his singles, also Mike Cohen was 100%, however Fionna Ridgewell lost to Glynn Payne 3-1, the only other loss for the rebels was a 3-1 loss in the final doubles match, however the game was already won and the final score on the night was 7-2
Snipers were leaders before tonight’s match mainly due to playing an extra game, however disappointingly for both sides Angels only turned up with 2 players, in the normal league with 2 players you are 3-0 down but still got 7 to play for. In the Divisional Cup you are 4-0 with only 5 to play.
So when Tony Swain & Dean Marsh beat Andy Brown and Anne Lindley in the first match the result was over.
Andy Brown won both his singles and Anne Lindley 1, but the Snipers still won 6-3 with Player of the Match Ben Swain beat Anne 3-0.
Snipers remain top but mainly due to them playing an extra game, and it was a real blow for the Angels as they have now lost 2 out of 3 in the divisional cup, even though in the normal league they are flying clear at the top
