Mens III away v Gosforth IV 26th June 2018

Tony & Vince     David (skip) & Chris     Jonny & Peter

Shotley won by 12 sets to 6 and 92 games to 74

Another win for a somewhat re-jigged third team with Tony & Vince just pipping David & Chris to top pair by way of fewer games conceded as both pairs took all 6 sets. Stars on the night were Tony for carrying his lacklustre partner for most of the night and Chris "Kid" Nichol who was outstanding in most aspects of his game but especially his phenomenal court coverage as he chased down apparent lost causes and turned them into winning points.

Third pair in the team was "Pistol" Jonny, easing his way back after injury and Peter who stepped up from the fourth team for his first taste at this level. The pair performed well in patches and were unlucky not to come away with at least two sets.

That's 3 wins and two losses for Skip David's boys and with an away match at local rivals Blaydon to come it looks to have been a good year for Volunteer of the Year and his motley crew.
