Craig Gibbons 16th May, 2017

BROMSGROVE Men’s F team kicked off their Herefordshire and Worcestershire Summer League Division Nine East campaign against the newly-formed Men’s G side.

The first round of matches went to the F team who opened up a 3-0 lead following a number of keenly fought games.

Captain Rob Kindon and junior Charlie Tait spearheaded the charge by defeating deputy captain Giles Hyder and Barry Ross 6-1, 6-1 in the opening rubber.

They were supported by Mark Wilson and Paul Douglas who beat Stewart Roney and Brian Taylor 6-4, 6-2.

Junior Tom Round, in his debut senior match, and his partner Josh Baldwick proved too strong for their opposition Dave Pugh and Fabrice Vinson, triumphing 6-1, 6-1.

In the second round of matches Kindon and Tait beat Pugh and Vinson 6-2, 6-0 with Baldwick and Round cruising to a 6-0, 6-0 win against Roney and Taylor.

As darkness fell Wilson and Douglas completed the rout, overcoming Hyder and Ross 6-4, 6-4 to secure a 6-0 victory for the F team.

Captain Kindon said “It was good to see both juniors, especially Tom, play so well for a senior team.

“We have a number of juniors that we are keen to blood in the F and G teams to further their development.

“A number of the senior players are definitely looking over their shoulders and competition for places can only be good for the club.”
