On Sunday 9th January, the cadet team of Ben Aldridge, Adam Koszyk and Shivam Gopal represented Westfield TTC in the National Cadet League at the Sycamore Club in Nottigham. With the withrdrawal of 3 Peterborough teams, the contest was changed from the expected 2 divisions back to one division of 5.
They started off their campaign against West Bridgeford with a 3 all draw; there were some very close games - Adam worked hard to come from 2-0 down to win in the fifth set; Ben was unlucky to lose a close game to 9 in the fifth and Shivam managed to close his game down in the fifth.
The next match against Cliffdale Chandlers was an easier affair which was won 5-1, with Ben and Adam winning all their games and Shivam dropping one very close game, each end by 11-9.
Their third match against Knighton Park was a tougher game with Adam picking up the only honours to lose 5-1 overall.
Nottingham was their final opponent - a great way to finish the day with a 6-0 win.
The succesful day left us second in the table, 5 points behind Knighton Park with a final weekend to play in March.
Well done to the players for their sustained efforts, especially as Adam and Ben had played in the Junior league the previous day.
With thanks to their families for their continued support.
