Stratford Herald Week Eleven

Henley Pasties maintained their quest for league honours by imposing the whitewash upon West Warwicks with Mike Credlamd, Jason Rainey and Tom Shortley conceding just three games in the process.


Having completed their first half fixtures Pasties lead the table by 13 points, although reigning champions Shottery A remain in pole position having two matches in hand. They recorded an even more convincing demolition of Tanworth Taipans, with Gary Stewart, John Price and Stephen Foster sweeping all before them.


Henley B continued their good form with an 8-2 victory over Blazing Paddles. The team demonstrated their intent in the opening set where Stuart Latham-Marr defeated opponents’ captain Nello Mauri before going on to complete a treble without the loss of a game. Robert McCluskey and Tony Seymour added braces but neither was able to overcome Mauri, who thereby earned both his team’s points, although Dave Fordham was unlucky not to add to that tally after losing out to Seymour in the only contest to be settled in the decider.


All three Shottery C players chalked up braces in their 6-4 win over FISSC. Rob Poole was denied a perfect performance by Malcolm Smith who overcame loss of the first two games to claim the set in the fifth. The Farmers’ Mark Jones enjoyed a successful evening by denying Kevin Taylor and David Lincoln-Lewis and then successfully partnering Smith in the doubles.


Veterans were only able to field two players when they entertained Henley A, but George Mudie and Brian Marston gave a good account of themselves to ensure their team finished with a share of the honours. They each recorded two wins, as well as pairing up to earn the doubles. In the only tie to go the distance Marston took an early two game lead against Geoff Shepherd, only to be taken to a fifth where he raised his performance to edge home 11-9. However neither of the Veterans were a match for Peter Quince who won both his sets without reply.
