When St Ninians are able to field their full team of Neil Harding,Michael Harrison,Gregg Harrison,Chris Birch,Nicola Wilkinson,Jane Wooding,Sue Domingo and Sarah Corlett they are going to be difficult to beat.  Their strength in depth was evident on Thursday evening against a Vikings team who were fielding four teenagers which can only be good for their future.  Two matches went to three, at first mens where Vikings Matthew Nicholson and Kevin Harding took the first game 21/15 against Michael Harrison and Neil Harding before the St Ninians pair changed their game to win the next two 21/18 21/17.  Second mixed saw Vikings Harding and Yvonne Irvine taking the first 21/19 against Gregg Harrison and  Wooding before the St Ninians pair evened the match 21/18. The Vikings pair held their nerve to take the third game 21/18. SN

Demonstrating strength in depth at Selborne, this was a hotly contested match ...lots of banter maybe, but no quarter given - both teams needing the points and all fought very hard for! Second mens went to the  B team with a 21/15, 21/17 win for Paul Griffiths and Neil Keatings.  However the C team second womens Gill Young and Jane Casey did well winning 17/21, 21/17, 21/15 against Anita Griffiths and Felicia Gawne. First mens played some good badminton and long rallies before Alan Ferguson and Roy Wilson beat Ray McMullen and nephew Neil McMullen 21/14, 21/19. Meanwhile another 'shock' at first ladies saw C team's Carol Kelly and Sue Young just win 22/20, 21/18 against Susie Stewart and Julie McLean in a good contest. Keatings and Gawne took fourth for B in two, before Chris Ewan and Gill Young reduced the C team's deficit winning 21/13, 21/16 versus Paul and Anita Griffiths. Both second and first mixed went to the  B team in three.  At second Ferguson and Stewart 21/11, 15/21, 21/17 against Ray McMullen and Sue Young, and at first Wilson and McLean 13/21, 21/17, 21/11 versus Neil McMullen and Kelly. The return is eagerly anticipated  RM
