Wednesday night saw a top quality encounter at Colebridge , as The Aces encountered The Braves in the Premier Division of The Birmingham League.
Turning out for the Aces were Ed Lynn together with brothers Amit and Amann Ubhi, for The Braves, Ben Willson , Lee Holtham and Vikas Bakhshi.
The first match of the evening was Amit versus Lee , which was a thrilling contest , full of away from the table top-spinning and counters , which Lee just edged , in the fifth set. Amit also fell victim to Bens serve and third ball attack tactics , which are proving of great value to the Premiership newcomer.
Amann secured his hat trick , although he was taken to five sets by Ben , in another match that went the distance.
Ed Lynn was stretched by Lee , who could well have taken the fourth end , only finally to fold in four.
Vikas will count himself unlucky not to register a victory , despite taking sets from all his club mates.
A great evenings sport for all concerned, which was expertly umpired by Colebridge stalwart Pete Roddy.
