Claire Halestrap Llanferres

Arriving a player short, Airbus still proved too good for home team Rossett A in their Division 1 fixture and comfortably took the match 6 – 2. Ashley Stokes and Kris Wood were in particularly fine form for Airbus when they faced Simon Lane and Matt Orchard at first men’s. Stokes and Wood won the first game 21/19 but Lane and Orchard rallied to just nick the second 24/22.
