Craig Gibbons 18th Apr, 2018

BROMSGROVE Ladies D secured promotion from Division Five East of the Herefordshire and Worcestershire Winter League in their last match of the season with a 4-0 victory over Cutnall Green B.

With the teams in joint-second it was a real showdown to see who would grab the promotion spot.

Playing at home Cutnall had the advantage but Bromsgrove rose to the occasion and produced some great tennis to serve up promotion.

Beccy Smith with Lisa Rushton were in top form and won both rubbers in two sets.

It was harder going for Connie Wedelich and Marie Hackett who fought out tough three-set matches for victory, winning the final sets 6-0 and taking a nail-biting tie break to win 7-6 and give Bromsgrove a clean sweep.

Captain Smith said: “We came into the match expecting a tight contest as Cutnall have been in good form and promotion was at stake.

“I was really pleased at the team’s response and to come out 4-0 winners is fantastic and just shows the fighting spirit we have.”
