League 5



Caley Stores Sulby 2 Tynwald Celts B 16



Despite fielding two experienced reserves, Rheubon Thomas and George Li , Sulby met determined Tynwald Celts opposition but the home team perhaps deserved a few more games had luck gone their way. The closest matches on the night were at first men’s where Thomas and Li  were just squeezed out by Tynwald Celts John Dawson and Mark Cheung 24/22 21/17 and at first mixed where Sulby’s Thomas with Heather Kennett just couldn’t find the same consistency as Tynwald Celt’s Dawson with Kira Birchall and narrowly lost in the third game 21/19 11/21 19/21. Tynwald Celts dominated the scoring in all the other games and Sulby’s only other success was at first womens where Kennett and Katie Strickett managed to win a game from Tynwald Celts  Janine Coleman and  Birchall .  Overall this was an excellent result for the Tynwald Celts ‘B’ team.
