Match Report

 A comprehensive win for Falcons - one of the Division 2 favourites - against Taverners who made an inauspicious start to their league programme last night! 
 Having said that, Falcons have an excellent "all round" team with experienced campaigners Mike and Ed supported by Louis Wilshire (who has made a solid start to the season) and another regular Chris Baron.

The evening produced some usual hard fought sets between the two teams with 4 being decided in the final game but all of them won by Falcons and only 2 sets won in three.

Mike had a few "wobbles" but playing his first match of the season soon got into his idiosyncratic style of play and won a deserved maximum. Better still was Ed who despite once again raising the noise levels at the Village Hall, was impressive with his forehand attack. A liitle less intensity would be good but you cannot deny that Ed "wears his heart on his sleeve" and gets results!

Louis played well and beat myself and Colin over 5 tight games to secure his third 2 set win of the season. Fortunately Martin beat Louis to gain a point for Taverners and combining with Colin in the doubles came back from 2 games down only to lose narrowly in the fifth.

Taverners will look forward to the "rematch" in January 2020!
