East Anglia Cup, 2018…

…was held at Hatfield this year. The result came down to the last match between the Richards of Hatfield* and Newmarket** (effectively playing as a proxy of Prested). The Richard of Hatfield had to win to wrest the title (and the rather splendid cup) from Prested’s grasp. Sportingly, he gave Richard of Newmarket a 4 game lead (the match being a set to 6) before drawing level. We in the Dedans thought that was it but Richard of Newmarket had other thoughts. He promptly won the 9th game but then it was 5-all and 30 -all. At this point, Richard*** won two straight points and it was all over…
The less said about Cambridge’s performance the better. It would have been a complete debacle without Ollie Brenton who amassed 75% of our points with some remarkably cool and calm headed tennis over much more experienced opponents. Thanks to him (and him alone) we just beat Newmarket to avoid the EAC Wooden Spoon.
***Cheap shot. Which Richard? Ed
ps Many Thanks to Robin Mace and Hatfield for hosting such an excellent day of Tennis (and congratulations to them on winning the 2018 EAC…)
