Nomads storm to super win over Ledbury Lions
4:10pm Monday 30th December 2013 in Sport
THERE were close matches in the Paperstation Malvern League’s handicap competition opening round.
Pride of place went to Division Two side Nomads, who enjoyed a nine-point victory over Ledbury Lions.
It was thanks to a fine display by Dave Hayes as he drew with both Mike Morgan and Richard Smith as well as taking a crucial doubles set with Tony Hughes.
Hughes also claimed a singles set against Morgan 11-4 to maintain Nomads’ narrow advantage.
Division One leaders Ledbury Collection overcame a 156-point handicap against reigning cup winners and Division Two top team Travellers by six with a victory for Toby Wren over Ann Barnes. She went on to claim single sets against both Nigel Foreshew and Craig Preece.
However, the greater consistency of the top-flight side narrowly won through.
Division Two outfit Dynamos overcame higher-ranked strugglers Crackpots ‘E’ with John Phillips defeating both Matt Hodges and Dave Steen 3-1 while sharing his four sets with Richard Maddrell.
Geoff Burford also defeated Maddrell and took one set off Hodges before Collette James also helped earn Dynamos a 60-point victory.
