The Mens 1 team won 6-3 against Enderby Mens 1 last night, making it six wins from seven matches.
Enderby had no third pair and conceded three rubbers, but after losing the first two rubbers of the night, a Croakers victory was not a foregone conclusion. However, the team stood firm and won sufficient rubbers to secure the win.
David & Lee struggled to find their rhythm and lost to Enderby’s first pair, but after a few words of encouragement from the team captain, beat the second pair in two games. The star performers on the night were Raheel & Alex B, winning both rubbers, including a dogged performance against Enderby’s first pair. This was Alex B's first league match since joining Croakers - an impressive debut. Aside from the concession, Steve & Alex L were unable to win a rubber, but gave a good account of themselves and were unlucky on a few points.
The next match is against Meltonshire Mens 2 on Friday 8th April.
