ARRAN Grimes produced another fine display in the Arthur Melling Memorial Tennis League.

In the reverse fixture from last week, Grimes again beat Marvin Joyner and broke an eight year old record in the process.

Joyner showed signs of improvement but still failed to get anywhere near the standard of Grimes, his frustration showing when he was penalised one point for foul and abusive language after a double fault.
