BROMSGROVE A finished second in Division One of the Herefordshire and Worcestershire Summer League, after signing off with a 12-2 win again Manor Park B on Wednesday.

Worcester A narrowly won the title on 70 points, six ahead of second-placed Bromsgrove, despite the latter’s dominant victory.

Adam Dudek and Stuart Shannon got proceedings underway with a straight-sets win over John Clarke and Jonathan Paul-White 6-0, 6-1, while Luke Pettit and Harley Jones lost a three-setter 6-4, 2-6, 6-7 to Rory Guilding and Geoff Smith.

After that, Bromsgrove failed to drop a set to sign off their Summer League campaign on a high.

It followed Bromsgrove’s 10-4 victory over DL Bromsgrove on Tuesday, on an evening in which neither side were able to take any of the six matches to three sets.

Elsewhere in the division, Droitwich Spa A edged Stourbridge A 10-4 to finish sixth.

Lee Cowan and Matthew Baker won the opener 6-1, 6-3 against Richard Banno and Oliver Rock, while Stourbridge duo Adam Tranter and Max Hingley got the better of James Nam and James Douglas-Osborn 6-0, 4-6, 6-1.

Stourbridge led the tie overall after Jason Donoghue and Alex Meintjes’ victory over Benedict Buckley and Mark Jones 6-4, 6-4, but Bromsgrove hit back in the final three matches to win.
