Forrest C -
4 matches, 4 wins and only 1 game dropped - a fantastic start to the season for Forrest C. The team are benefiting from a consistent team, and have started the season in some great form!
Although we are only 4 games into the season, it is good to see we have all of our teams (C,D & E) at the top of C section! Keep it up!
Forrest B -
After struggling for a team for the first match of the season, Forrest B have recovered and fielded an almost full strength team for their last two matches. Last week they beat Westhoughton A (away) 12-6, and on Tuesday (away again) they beat Markland Hill D 15-3.
Forrest A -
On Wednesday night Forrest A took on last seasons winners of A section, Hawkshaw A. Matt Green and Debbie Rigby started the night with wins over Hawkshaw's 2nd pair, Duncan Evans and Cai Batchelor 21-16, 21-12. Ron Welsh and Paula Wright also started well splitting their games against Hawkshaw's 1st couple 21-18, 19-21.
Going into the levels, the games were tied at 5-5. However, Forrest took control of the match with the 1st ladies winning 21-18, 21-11, whilst John Bowker and Matt Green were on form to take the first men's 21-12, 21-9 against county 1st player Scott Webber who was partnering Craig Eccleston.
With 9 games on the card, we had produced a draw at the very least. Carolyn Wood and Paula Wright won their first game 21-16 ensuring a Forrest win, but lost the 2nd 23-25. On the next court John and Ron lost their first game but pulled back in the final game to win 21-18.
Well done to Forrest A with an impressive 11-7 win over Hawkshaw A!
