Ladies Team Gain Promotion to Premier League

6th March in Wolverhampton
Team –
1.  Kim Hay
2.  Carol Page
3.  Emma Barnett
4.  Catherine Brown
5.  Chris Park

First match v Staffordshire

Catherine and Emma started us off well, both winning 3-0 giving us the lead.  Chris then continued the trend with another 3-0 win.  Kim has a battle at no. 1 string and despite taking a 2-1 lead against Gayle Kerrison, she just couldn’t finish it and lost 3-2.  Carol sealed the victory by taking a convincing 3-0 win.  Final score 4-1 to Northumbria.

Second Match v Leicesteshire

Emma and Catherine started the team off with 2 wins gain, Emma taking the match 3-0, Catherine deciding to get her money’s worth, fighting back from 2-0 down to claim victory 3-2.  Kim went 2-0 up and after a slight waiver (or a little nap as some would say) losing the third game, took the match 3-1.  Carol continued the clean sweep with her second 3-0 victory.  Chris obviously won her game convincingly due to her skill and experience…..and the fact that she had no opponent as they only brought 4 players – well done Chris!!  Final result 5-0 to Northumbria!!

We are now promoted to the premier league…so we will enjoy our success while we still can!!
