This the 2nd outing for the Wigan A team proved to be more than a struggle for our battling juniors. To start the day Wigan were just too strong for the Formby A side by taking the match 4-2. Sam Talbot with the best start winning both of his first 2 matches. Nathan and Frankie both winning 1 each to help keep Formby at bay.
The next match up v Warrington was a close encounter of the 3 all kind with Nathan, Sam and David each winning 1 match to take a well-deserved draw.
The rest of the day was a struggle but the Wigan players continued to play with commitment and enthusiasm but alas losses of 6-0 against Halton, Rhyl and Stockport was the best we could do.
With time to improve before the next meeting, Wigan can show their true colours and get back into gear for the New Year. Top marks to Sam Talbot who was definitely man of the day by playing very well in every match and credit to Nathan, Frankie and David who also all played to a high standard throughout.
Another fantastic days TT by the ever improving B team – in this round we were unbeaten, with 3 wins and 2 draws against LSG and Ramsbottom.
Seeing them all play, you wouldn’t believe that this was only their 2nd day of competitive TT – if they keep up this standard and continue to work hard in training, in no time at all they will be top top players !!
To remain unbeaten as a team does show how well each player played, but Player of the Day must go to Daniel, who beat the previously unbeaten Adam from LSG, deuce in the fifth. One of the best games I’ve ever seen at this level with great topspin play from both boys.
I don’t think that the parents could believe how good some of the rallies were – keep up these standards boys.
Wigan still top of the table at the end of the day, 1 point over LSG – it’s going to be close !!
