Tennis: Runners-up spot for Malton men
2:20pm Wednesday 18th September 2013 in Sport
MALTON'S first team have finished runners-up in Driffield Men’s League division one.
A final volley of league matches saw Malton unable to topple Beverley & ER, who ended the campaign – a competitive season with many teams fielding county and ex-county players – as unbeaten champions.
In their last five matches, Malton suffered two closely-fought 5-4 defeats, at Beverley and Pocklington, to seal their runners-up fate.
However, a couple of heavy wins against Cherry Burton and Driffield Rec saw them end the season in style.
The club are always on the lookout for new players – men and women – to boost their squads for next season.
Club tennis continues at the Old Maltongate site on most Thursday nights throughout the winter.
The Malton squad included Andrew Cooke, captain Angus Smith, league president Steve Atkinson, Alastair Barron, Nigel Skelton, under-18 AEGON County Cup champion Will Spencer, Xavier Cordingley, Paul Chapel and Dom Shread.
