Severnvales stronger pair won both their straight matches, fighting off Matt and Jamie 21-19 in the opening game. Steve and Stu winning in 2 quite easily against the weaker pair, before taking their top pair to three begin beaten by excellent serving from the Severnvale pair in the final game.
But, its first points on the board and out of the gate for the newly promoted team in Div.2
