In the Premier Division, Greig, Colin and Iain travelled to face Edinburgh International 1 encouraged by their previous week's comfortable win against University. The optimism didn't last long, however, as the home team raced into a 3-0 lead. EI 1 were arguably strengthened by Matthew Robertson playing up in the place of Russell Firth and he disposed of Colin in 3 comfortable ends. IN Greig's crucial 1st match, he looked in control at 2-1 up against Babu Valaguruvan, but lost both the 4th and 5th ends 9-11. Iain similarly looked good having taken the 1st end against Marek Domagala but lost a tight 2nd before being overpowered in the 3rd and 4th ends. The match was gone in no time as the next 3 matches were also lost by the visitors and it was left to Greig and Colin to win the doubles and their final matches to give some respectability to the scoreline as they went down to a disappointing 7-3 defeat.
There was much better news in Division 2 where our 3rd Team of James, Abby and Gary continued their excellent start to the season with a win against Murrayfield 7. The team were never behind in the match but when Murrayfield pulled the score back to 4-4 the match was again in the balance. It was left to Gary and James to win the final two matches to give the visitors an excellent 6-4 win. All three players contributed with two wins each and Abby was unfortunate not to win all her matches as she came closest to beating Murrayfield's top player, James Forrest, just losing out in a tight final end. The win keeps intact the 3rd Team's 100% record at the top of the Division.
In Division 3, a new look 4th Team took on a strong ESC team. Captain Phil rang the changes as in to the side came Gregory Leplatre and debutant, Tony Brentnall to join forces with Krzysztof Laszkiewicz. On paper a very strong looking side but unfortunately, it was only Tony, coming back to the sport after a number of years away, that could find any form as he had an excellent debut winning two of his 3 singles matches. Greg found the step up from Division 4 difficult but joined with Kris for a good win in the doubles as the 4th Team went down to a 7-3 defeat.
