League 5


RL360 Rushen C 2 Citywing Vikings C 14


The fifth match of the season for Rushen resulted in a convincing 14-2 victory for  Vikings  at Castle Rushen High School. Rushen made a promising start with second mens Nick Fullerton and Thomas Harmstone winning 21/16 21/12 against Roy McLean and Alex Buck, but the set remained the only win of the night for the club. First mens  began with a close game with Vikings Derek Gray and Matthew Bruce winning 21/18 against David Leigh and Jonny Weir but the Rushen pair suffered a heavy defeat in the second game and could not capitalise on the early win in the first match of the night.  DL
