Neil Magrath reporting on the match said “This was a great match where the youth of Glenburn were pitched against the experience of Civil Service, with youth edging the match 6-4 after another see-saw performance. Glenburn came out of the blocks very fast with Matthew and James winning to gain a 2-0 lead, only to be pegged back when both Lucys lost tight matches to Brian and Maurice, with LJ again just unable to close out sets losing one 15-17. Matthew and James restored a 2 point lead with convincing victories, only for Adrian and Brian to pull the match level with LJ losing another set 12-14 and LC almost turning her match around recovering from 8-2 down to level at 8-8 but it was not to be this time. Matthew and Maurice then played a crucial match going to the 5th, with Matthew continuing his fine form to give Glenburn a 5-4 lead. The match of the night however was the doubles with James and Lucy C, combining again after their victory last week, where once again youth overcame the experienced pairing of Adrian and Maurice recovering from losing the first set to win in the 4th set of a very entertaining and high quality match with great rallies.”
