Tennis: Aegon League campaign starts

17 09 2012

Dumfries A started their national tennis league campaign with a double header at the weekend, first up was a match against Stirling Universities third team. The format would be four singles matches to start with Lister and Dan McKiddie winning their matches and Chris Topping and Richie Cunningham losing theirs.

Next up was the doubles matches with Lister and Dan winning their match but again Chris and Richie losing theirs. With the matches tied at 6-6 it came down to championship tie-breaks but unfortunately Dumfries lost both which gave Stirling the match 7-6.

On Sunday Dumfries travelled to Stirling to play last year’s Division 4 Champions Livilands 2, with a couple of changes in the line up Dumfries faired a bit better winning the singles 3 matches to 1 with Colin Dunbar, Richie Cunningham & Dan McKiddie winning their matches.

In the doubles a comfortable win for Colin & Dan completed the victory before Richie and Duncan Muir lost in the final doubles match.

This weekend see Dumfries A play Linlithgow in Dumfries and Dumfries B start their campaign by travelling to Cambuslang to play their Division 4 match against Kirkhill TC.
