BROMSGROVE Tennis Club men’s G team saw their winning streak end after a close defeat by second placed Droitwich F in division 11E of the Hereford and Worcs League. After four successive victories they went down 3-1.

The opening round saw both rubbers go to three sets and Bromsgrove just lost both in tie breaks to go 0-2 down.

The second round saw Craig Horton with captain Martin German win 6-4, 6-2, but Joe Finn with Fabrice Vinson lost 3-6, 2-6.

With just one match remaining any hopes of promotion are now gone, but a solid mid table finish is guaranteed.

It was a similar result for the Men’s D team who played away against Pershore B team in division 7E.

Lukas Pye and Stewart Roney stepped up from the F and G squads respectively to fill last minute withdrawals due to illness to join Tom Round and Trevor Errington.

The opening round saw a long battle for Round and Errington with most games going to deuce. However they eventually lost 3-6, 3-6.

Their second round went better as they started with a 6-1 win and fought off a Pershore recovery to win the second 7-5.

Stepping up four divisions for Pye and Roney was tough but they fought hard, going down in both rubbers to give Pershore a 3-1 win.
