Whitby Endeavour 7 Royal Mail 3

ANOTHER good win for Whitby. Man of the match was Whitby’s Graham Cripps who won all three of his singles games including a really close and hard-fought win over Royal Mail’s Stuart Robinson.

Jonathan Parkinson contributed a solid performance for Whitby by winning two of his three singles games and Whitby’s Dan Schweitzer achieved his very first win in the league by beating Adrian Atkinson.

This left Whitby 6-3 up with just the doubles to play.

Ken Benford partnered Graham Cripps against Robinson and Atkinson and they had a fairly comfortable win in three ends.
