Robert McCrory reporting on the match said “Legacurry started strongly winning the first two games. Ivor was next up against James and lost out narrowly after some long rallies. Stanley then put Legacurry out in front again after a long 5 setter vs Tom. It was all to play for after the first round of matches. Roy and Andrew won one and lost one leaving the score at 4-2 to Legacurry. Ivor felt unwell and was unable to play against Tom, and Stanley lost to James bringing it to 4-4. With the two sets of doubles left to play it was all to play for. Roy and Andrew won in 4 sides, making it 5-4 to Legacurry and with Ivor feeling slightly better he, decided to come on and play with Stanley in the doubles to try and push on for the win. They won in 3 sides. A great match that could have gone either way in the end.”
