A Mixed Start to the Season

After three weeks of matches in the Driffield League there has been a mixed bag of results.

There has been a worrying trend in the leagues with various clubs pulling teams out for a number of different reasons, the main being clubs not having enough players to make up a team. Malton Men have pulled out their A team, Hutton Cranswick Mixed B and Flamborough Mixed teams have actually dropped out, with Brandesburton conceding due to only having one man to play!

These trends are reflected in Pocklington too with the selectors scrambling around for players. The reins have been handed over to the captains, so please make the effort to play. If you wish to play in the top teams, commitment is required. Otherwise it makes an impossible task for the D & E teams as their players are moved upwards. Tying players needs careful consideration too. It is the choice of the individual player whether they are tied to a team above.

Best wishes and a speedy recovery go to Nigel Bartram & Fiona Lambert who sustained injuries in this weeks matches. See you both back soon.
Good luck to all teams, enjoy your tennis.
