Mohan leads Haddenham to comeback victory


KIERAN Mohan picked up three wins as Haddenham I came from behind to beat Fulbourn III 7-3 in Ely & District League, Division One.

Nigel Bates got the better of both Christian Mohan and Patrick Mohan and Carrie Cope saw off the latter to give Fulbourn a fine start only for Kieran Mohan to spark the comeback.

Impington I earned a 6-4 victory over Ely I with Reno Phyo scoring a maximum in the singles and completing an undefeated evening by teaming up with Bob Pettit for success in the doubles.

Yohan Slama claimed treble triumph in the singles and produced two unreturnable serves in the doubles to clinch a 6-4 win for Fulbourn I against Soham Comrades I.

Soham and Elsworth I drew 5-5 in a close-fought encounter where neither team got more than one game ahead.

Tony Everitt recorded three wins for Soham and he linked up with Tracey Sambrook to secure doubles success over Roger Fensom and Peter Goatly to ensure a share of the spoils.

In Division Two, Ellesmere I continued their impressive form with a crushing 9-1 win over Ely II.

At 8-0, Neil Weir saved Ely from a whitewash with a five-set victory against Aldo Galea, but normal service was resumed when the unbeaten Rhys Davies and Joanne Pettitt took the doubles against Weir and Howard Middleton.

Harvey Dinkele and Tony Taylor were undefeated as Impington II thrashed Fulbourn IV 8-2.

Impington III maintained their decent record by beating Elsworth II 7-3.

The Elsworth trio of Maurice Circus, Ed Morolla and Bill Knibbs all beat Ena Catlin, but could not hold Jeff Catlin or Colin Adams in either the singles or doubles.

Fulbourn V got off to a flying start against Comrades IV, but two wins from Barry Sore and one from Chris Rule put the latter side ahead.

However, the remaining five rubbers went to Fulbourn to give them a 7-3 triumph.

In Division Three, Fulbourn VII had to call upon two players from their eighth team, but still won 9-1 against Comrades VI, who needed Ed Garrett-Jones’ success to avoid a whitewash.

Ely III collected a 7-3 win over Fulbourn VIII while Countess secured a 7-3 victory at home to Fulbourn VI with Brian Mitchell and Steven Jugg achieving maximums.
