Bromsgrove Mixed D complete great escape

BROMSGROVE’S Mixed D team have secured their Herefordshire and Worcestershire Winter League Division Six East status for an another year following their 4-0 victory over Bewdley D.

A great 4-0 victory over Droitwich D last week meant a good win for Bromsgrove would take them out of the relegation zone in their final match of the season to complete a great escape.

And it could not have started better against their relegation rivals as Annabelle Whitmore with Bruce Turner won 6-2, 6-1 and Lisa Rushton with Pete Morris won 6-1, 6-1 in the opening round to put Bromsgrove 2-0 up.

The second round then saw Rushton and Morris cruise to a 6-0, 6-1 victory.

Whitmore and Turner showed real grit to come back after losing their first set, winning 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 to clinch a 4-0 win and guarantee another season in Division Six East.

Captain Whitmore said: “it was looking grim for most of the season but the way the squad has responded to get these final two great victories to avoid relegation is fantastic.”

Elsewhere, the Ladies A remain in third place in Division One following their 4-0 victory over Pershore A.

The opening round went to Bromsgrove without any problems as they powered into a 2-0 lead.

Rachael Mak with Imogen Sinclair won 6-2, 6-4 while Tina Manning with Sally Franks had a comfortable 6-0, 6-1 win.

The reverse clashes were a little closer as Manning and Franks were pushed to three sets before winning 6-3, 3-6, 6-2 while Mak and Sinclair raced to a 6-1, 6-1 triumph.
