ROYSTON bounced back from last week's disappointing cup results with a number of impressive performances.
In the Premier Division, Dave Bridges' first maximum provided the basis for the A team's first victory of the season with a 7-3 win at Settlement Skylarks.
Bridges won all his singles and alongside John Manley, who won his two singles, claimed the doubles win. Mike Malone completed the rout with his singles win.
The B team gained their first win of their Division One campaign with a 6-4 victory over Bedwell D.
