Wilbert Armstrong reporting on the match said “Civil Service hosted Ballyclare at the Pavillion last night. Civil Service were without John Lockhart and Ballyclare without Wilbert Armstrong. Ballyclare needed a good win to keep the pressure on Craigavon at the top of the league and got off to a flier winning the first three matches with wins by Andy, Mike and Jess. Ivan clawed a match back by defeating Ian in a tense 5 setter. Things continued to go Ballyclare’s way as they won the next 3 matches on the trot. Kris again clawed a match back, but that was where the revival ended with Ballyclare winning the last singles and the doubles to make the match score to Ballyclare. Thanks to Civil Service for a well fought match.”
