Stratford Herald Week Beginning March 26th

A perfect performance from Mike Evetts provided the backbone to Colebridge Pasties 7-3 win over Henley B. He recorded a treble and then partnered Dean Hicks to success in the doubles. Hicks added a brace but, despite recovering from an initial two set deficit, lost out to Andy Rowland in the decider. In the only other game to go the full distance Jason Rainey defeated Robert McCluskey to acquire Pasties' seventh point. Rowland recorded two successes for Henley B with Dave Milton earning their other score.

Pasties gained their second victory of the week when they entertained Blazing Paddles with Evetts again untroubled. Mike Credland also went home with a treble although, in the first game of the evening, he defeated opponents captain Nello Mauri without reply only for his opponent to turn the tables and secure the second although that was to prove the only end conceded by Credland during the match. Rainey earned a brace, but was unlucky to lose 14-12 in the fifth against Mauri who thereby ensured Paddles avoided the whitewash. Rainey enjoyed some consolation for that defeat in the concluding doubles which he and Evetts won in the fifth set by the same 14-12 score.

Title chasing JLM Falcons overcame Shottery B 8- 2 with Luke Moffat and Jack Davis recording trebles as well as combining to claim the doubles. Steve Cull earned their eighth point but was unable to get the better of Awais Muhammed or Gareth Hepworth.

Veterans wrapped up their season with a 7-3 loss at the hands of the visiting Tanworth Taipans for whom Ben Rycroft-Stanley and Riz Akbar were undefeated. Brian Marston, Pete Rodwell and David Higgins each acquired a point for Veterans.

Ashorne won by the same score when they travelled to FISSC after coming through in all three games to go to the wire. Jim Jack overcame Malcolm Smith, Steve Handsley defeated Peter Florence and, in the doubles, Roger Pye and Handsley finally squeezed home 12-10. Jack led the way for the villagers by notching a treble, with Roger Pye adding a brace. Smith, Florence and Richard Bennett each gained a win for the hosts.
