Hot-shots David Lloyd Bromsgrove on the charge

Ben Tyler 28th Feb, 2020

IT WAS a stellar week for David Lloyd Bromsgrove C after a whitewash victory over Wollaston B in the Herefordshire and Worcestershire Men’s Winter League.

The 10-0 win in Division Six East has pushed DL Bromsgrove up to fifth in the division while their second-placed rivals lost ground in the race for the title.

Jonathan Botha and Jamie Mason gave an indication of what was to come with a scintillating 6-0, 6-0 drubbing of Wollaston’s Michael Scriven and James Perks, followed by a 6-2, 6-2 straight-sets win for DL’s Nigel Brookes and Stewart Boyd against Harvey Rutter and Paul Wootton.

Boyd and Brookes were 6-3, 6-3 winners against Scriven and Perks, while Mason and Botha recorded a 6-3, 6-0 win in the final rubber.


The Division Ten East derby between hosts Barnt Green D and Droitwich F finished 8-2 in favour of the visitors.

Colin White and Eliar Jamalfar got Green up and running with a 7-6, 6-2 success versus Philip Woodhouse and Mark Venables.

But Droitwich called the shots from then on, levelling the tie through John Jenkins and Jonathan Carter in a 6-3, 6-1 defeat of David Llewelyn and Harry Rachman.

A three-setter in the third rubber put the visitors in the driving seat to take the bulk of the points. Droitwich duo Jenkins and Carter took the third set following a tiebreak to claim a 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 victory against White and Jamalfar.

Woodhouse and Venables completed the job with a 6-4, 6-2 triumph over Llewelyn and Rachman, keeping Droitwich F in second. Barnt Green lie fourth.


There was further misery for David Lloyd Bromsgrove D in Division 11 East of the Women’s Winter League after being put to the sword by leaders Stourport B.

The 10-0 away defeat spelled further trouble for DL Bromsgrove, who remain bottom on six points, eight points adrift of second-bottom Blakedown & Hagley B.

Nancy Berry and Sue Nickson were unable to offer much resistance to Karen Booth and Evie Dorril in their 6-2, 6-0 opening loss, while teammates Claire Colemeadow and Karin Roosenboom fared no better against Lydia Jackson and Helen Griffiths, going down 6-1, 6-1.

Playing a second game in succession, Colemeadow and Roosenboom’s 6-1, 6-0 defeat to Booth and Dorril meant Stourport B took the overall victory.

Berry and Nickson unable to prevent a whitewash in their 6-4, 6-4 final rubber loss to Jackson and Griffiths.
