L A Dolphins 3-5 Henty Men
A good fun evening with plenty of banter ;D Dolphin re-furb is very nice :) Table needs plenty of attention as is playing even more uphill than it was before which makes the break near on impossible :-X However we didn't let that spoil a good night in good company ;)
The Wheeltappers skipper took no chances with this tricky fixture and decided to play his full strenth side which saw the return of their best player Eric Hampton. Eric true to form won his singles and doubles match and this also made a big contribution in his side gaining a narrow team aggregate score.
The Boys put in a much better performance than their opening game of the season which saw a return to form by Martin Elsworth who too won both his games.
Skipper Russell Oakes was pleased with the improvement from his side and reported , "We are gradually coming to a peak and this should now tee us up nicely to beat the Dolphins in our next match.
Another enjoyable evening by all.

Thanks to Stan for his report on the Dolphins v Men's match above. The home teams table surface which normally plays like the Reebok did on this occasion resemble Gigg Lane. This prompted the Men's skipper Captain Dec to make a late change to the singles by surprisingly dropping himself for Millser. Captain Dec remarked , tonights surface is not a thoroughbreads turf as I feel it is better suited to hit and hope players hence for the change. His decison was justified when Millser got the better of The Coach in the opening contest.
Yet again but for the Dolphin ladies, Hayley and Denise, the home team would have suffered another embarassing defeat.
