Autumn League Match Update

Oswestry Tennis Club’s 2nd team have played three further matches in a hectic schedule in their Group 3’s campaign. Firstly they had the unenviable task of playing top of the table Bridgnorth 2. The team, captained by Brett Hollywell who partnered Clare Hann and Kobe Jones who partnered Millie Hann took up the challenge and took a very creditable 2-2 draw. Their next match was a home fixture against Market Drayton 2 where they took a 3-1 victory and the next evening they travelled to Ludlow to play a strong Ludlow Castle 2nd team and managed to take a 2-2 draw. So with one match left to play they find themselves in the situation where they could still achieve promotion, finish in one of the two places where they retain their place in the Group, or if they get a bad result, could still get relegated.


Meanwhile the Oswestry 3rd team (pictured), captained by Dave Clough are having a terrific season in Group 4N. A 4-0 victory against Shifnal 1, a 4-0 victory over Lilleshall 1 and a 3-1 win over Shrewsbury Lawn 3 have left the team in a very strong position sitting top of the group. The team where Dave plays with Linda Clark and Dave Bass plays with Nia Christoforou have overcome a poor start to their season, losing their opening match, but have come through strongly to look good for promotion.


Oswestry’s 4th team, captained by Jo Dalietos have similarly emerged from a disappointing opening fixture defeat to beat both Lilleshall 2 and Market Drayton 4, both by the score of 3-1. The team that are playing in Group 5N have had Jo partnering both Steve Winter and Keith Grice and Rich Hann partnering his daughter Jessica Hann, and will be looking to continue their good form in their remaining matches.


The Oswestry first team, captained by Kat Oakley are still in the early stages of their Group 1
