Malden Manor's entry of Jeff Bendall and Steve Kerbey were victorious in their first round against a pair from Epsom B.C. We applaud new kids on the block Jeff and Steve for taking the bull by the horns and going for it - we're all rooting for you, good luck in your next round.

Kevin Spence and partner Phil Thomas received a bye in the first round. Round 2 saw our intrepid pair of newbies up against Marco Nayeem and partner of Cheam. Kevin and Phil faced Paul Taylor and partner of Cheam Fields. Sadly here they all hit the end of this particular road as both pairs suffered defeat. All good experience though chaps and there’s always next year!
