We were able to welcome a familiar sight (and sound!) back to Testwood for this one. It was good to see Brian Hayes enjoying his game again.

Boy, can this guy play. He was too hot for any of us to handle that’s for sure. We had to therefore concentrate on picking up points from the others. Ian Shapey is becoming much better known to us and the highlight of our evening was Matt beating him in three straight, primarily through some scintillating forehand attack. In the end, the result was 6-4 to New Community A. So we managed to secure some more points in our bid to creep up the table.
