Somerset v Cornwall – 12th December 2014

14/01/2014 21:39

Today the Somerset U15’s travelled to Newquay in Cornwall to play their match. Dan Hiscock played an excellent singles came against their number two to win in two games 21 -18, 21 – 10. Dan’s new fitness regime certainly seems to be paying off adding a new strength to his shots, as well as having the excellent touch shots he has. Dan played very wisely, moving his opponent all over the court to create the opening required to make the winning shot; the match was a real pleasure to watch, well done, Dan. Dan was also to claim another match with Tom Reddaway in the doubles beating the Cornish third pair 16-21, 21-9, 21-12.Sam Dove played a well fought singles game against their number five losing it narrowly in the third game, 21-23. Although, Jamie Stanford, Matthew Bowditch, Sam Dove and Sam Wellwood didn’t have any successes against the Cornish pairs in their doubles games they fought hard to return their shots.

The team will be having their first training session of the New Year next Sunday at Crewkerne at 10am.Thank-you to all that played and to Godfrey Dove for helping to transport the team.

Coach – Jane Reddaway
