IvorThomas on 15 March 2017
Two Wirral junior teams played in the annual U15 Dave O'Leary and U19 Thornley Inter-League competitions at Christleton SC on Sunday. U19's were unlucky to have a losing draw against Chester but got a winning draw against Warrington. They lost 3-5 to Crewe though so finished in 3rd place. U15's were all young players and had varied match experience. They had some close individual games but lost all of their matches, so they finished in 4th place. Chester league won both competitions. Many thanks go to Tim as Team Manager having devoted a lot of time getting the teams together. He praised and motivated the young players throughout the afternoon. Credit and praise go to the all players as well for their enthusiastic and competitive play.

Wirral League win CCBA Inter-league Baxter Trophy!

IvorThomas on 16 January 2017
Congratulations to our team that won the Baxter Trophy over the weekend. This is team Captain Alex Bergh's Report: We played Crewe first and won 5-1, only conceding (just) the ladies doubles. Tara Priestley won her ladies singles 7&5 and got the singles bug, was happy to stick to the singles after that!) Second up was a 6-0 victory over Runcorn/Widnes, the flapjacks I provided clearly working. Finally we beat Chester 5-1, only conceding the mens singles in 3 after Adam Bridson won the first but went over on his ankle in the 2nd. He hobbled out. Star of the show and worth a mention was Tara Priestley who didn’t mind playing the first singles of the day but then insisted on carrying on with singles which is unheard of, beating a well known Crewe lady who is a regular at County Level (can’t remember her name). Alex Bergh Thank you to Alex for Captaining the Team. Attached is a photo:- L-R Men: Ashley Stokes, Dave Walker, Ben Proctor, Adam Bridson, Rich Bergh L-R Women: Claire Woodward, Laura Mumford, Tara Priestley, Jess Markey, Tara Moorcroft
