Tennis: Prestwick Scottish Cup result

14 06 2013

Dumfries Tennis ClubDumfries Men’s tennis team played against Prestwick Tennis Team on 1st June in the first round of the national round of the Scottish Cup.

Dumfries lost 5 – 1, however gave a very good account of themselves and the match was much closer than the score suggested. The team comprised Lister McKiddie and Colin Dunbar, Daniel McKiddie and Ritchie Cunningham and Graeme Cross and Duncan Muir.

The Prestwick first couple proved to be too strong but Graeme and Duncan pushed them hard. Lister and Colin went down in a close 7-6, 7-6 battle. Ritchie and Daniel had two close encounters and won the one tie in a tight three set battle.

Notwithstanding this defeat, there are good prospects in the future for the Dumfries Men’s team, with the younger players combining well with the more experienced players, albeit with Ritchie now being aged 30, he may no longer be classified as youthful!
