DAVID Lloyd Bromsgrove A tasted defeat on their first outing in this season’s Herefordshire & Worcestershire Winter League Men’s Division One.

Joshua Hughes and Jack White roared back with a 6-4, 7-5 victory over James Troth and Henry Myatt, though the Worcester duo lost out to DL Bromsgrove’s Southall and Nolan in their second match by a 6-1, 1-6, 4-6 scoreline.

The overall win was on the line going into the final match, and Attwood and Wright beat Troth and Myatt 6-2, 6-4.

DL Bromsgrove A return to action in early November with a home tie against David Lloyd Worcester A.
