Senior British League Weekend 2
13th & 14th October at Cippenham TTC.

 

Perfect weekend for Ellenborough

Four wins from four matches means Ellenborough are now 4 points clear at the top of the division with 8 wins out of 8 as they strive for back to back promotions. Team captain Roger Pyle had to make changes to the team from the first round of matches with the absence of Mitchell Jones  (on holiday), so in came Andy Trott at number 1 and Ellenborough old boy Daniel Wright at number 2, they were supported by Daniel Fielding and Sara Williams. The first match on Saturday was up against the side in 2nd place the host team Cippenham, it proved to be a really tough match that went down to the very last game, with the score sitting at 4 matches all it was down to Sara Williams to hold her nerve which she did with a superb 11-1, 11-8, 11-4 win over Paul Baker, giving Ellenborough the points.

The second match on Saturday was up against mid-table Brighton who had former top German women’s player Raffaela Kurz playing at number 1. Andy Trott played very well to beat her 3-2, but she did get the better of Daniel Wright who surrendered a 2-0 lead to end up loosing 11-7 in the final set. With Maximum from Andy and a win each for Daniel Wright, Daniel Fielding, and Lukasz Lewandowski Ellenborough went on to win the match 6-3.      

​Roger again made changes to the team for the first match on Sunday morning against bottom placed side Kingfisher II. The team for this match was Daniel Wright, Sam Cowan, Sara Williams and Lukasz Lewandowski. This turned into a bit of a romp for Ellenborough who ran out 9-0 winners. There was a bit of interest in the hall as Sara Williams England’s number 1 women’s veteran played England number 2 cadet 14 year old Anaya Patel, Sara ran out the winner relatively easy 3-1, in a match that produced some really good rallies     

Sundays afternoon matched Ellenborough with Horsham Spinners. In came Mitchell Jones for this match fresh from sitting on the beach for 2 weeks!! His team mates were Daniel Wright, Sam Cowan and Sara Williams, 2 wins each for Mitchell and Sam ensured a 7-2 victory.

So with just over half the matches played the squad will need to keep focused and keep practicing hard before the next round of matches  In February if we are to achieve our goals. With the superb results from the 8 matches played so far our destiny is in our own hands if we are to gain promotion to Division A1
