After splitting the doubles matches, Lewis Freeman and Stephen Swann won in straight sets to ensure the victory. Ben Spencer and Tom Halbert lost their singles in 3 tight sets which helped the team get the advantage. Well done to the boys and best of luck to the team this week. On a side note, Angelo has promised bronze statues of each of the players which will be put out the front of the club if they are to go all the way. Angelo is starting to get very nervous!!
