Halvergate and Harling progress

Both Halvergate and Harling made light work in their preliminary ties in the challenge cup against Hingham and Deaf Sports respectively.

Harling stormed to an 18-2 win in their first leg at home to Deaf Sports with Steve Easter and Mick Tarrant in good form in the singles for Harling as they recorded wins of 15-7 and 18-3 in the first session and 13-6 and 15-7 in the second session. Deafs only win came from Gillian Amos, Alf Knowler, Caroline Mohammed and Robin Amos with an 8-4 win. It did take the second session in the second leg for Harling to confirm their status in the first round with an emphatic 18-0 win for Mo. Tarrant, Chris Jones, Ted Jones and Arthur Snelling.
