Yorkshire League Report CHAPEL A v HALLAMSHIRE


sponsored by




Having suffered a narrow defeat at Barnsley the week before it was critical that we got a win to keep the Yorkshire League title race alive.

First up was Dom Hamilton against Dylan Martens. One sided from the start Dom was moving explosively. Dylan could not cope with the angles and holds, comfortable 3-0 Chapel.

Stuart MacGregor against Alex Cutts at three was never going to be over quickly with both players retrieving well and extending the rallies on the hot Chapel courts. Despite Alex taking the first game 13/11 Stuarts strength and fitness told in the end with the match becoming progressively easier as it went on, 3-1 Chapel.

Declan Christie at four completed another relatively straightforward victory. It was a tight first game but after that Dec was never troubled. “We are definitely going to win the league now” he was heard to comment 14 times that evening!

The second string encounter was a dog fight between Owain Taylor and up and coming Hallamshire junior Nick Wall. Both players fought hard throughout and despite going 2-1 down Owain held his nerve to take a close 4th and 5th set winning the match 3-2.

The final match of the evening was decided by four close games between Mark Fuller and Ashley Davies. In the end Mark had slightly more in the legs coming through 3-1 and securing maximum points for Chapel.

With only three matches to play we are currently 14 points behind Dunnington with a game in hand and 18 points ahead of Pontefract who have a game in hand on us. Victory in next weeks away match at Dunnington could set up the last match of the season as the title decider, at home against Pontefract on the 29th March!
