At Lewsey proceedings were kicked off by fifth strings John Stevens (LDSC) and Juliet Johnson (Mowsbury), with the latter triumphing 3-0.

Third string Scot Adam was up against Phil Hales as the LDSC man’s fitness and tighter stroke play proved to be the difference in a 3-0 win.

Second strings Craig Basham (LDSC) and Shaun Conlon (Mowsbury) were next up, with Basham winning 3-1.

The first string match between Declan Osborn and Ryan Pescod was the proverbial game of two halves.

Osborn dominated the first two games but was found to be wanting in terms of fitness, losing out 3-2.

This meant that the final match was also the decider as respective captains Matt Carey (LDSC I) and Dean Simpson (Mowsbury) met, with Carey easing home 3-0.

LDSC II played two young debutants in their 3-2 defeat to Houghton Regis.
