THE second week of the NHTTA league season produced a contrast of results for the Royston teams.

Royston's only success came with the C team's resounding 9-1 victory in Division Two.

Beating Arto's TTC B, Hayden Gowen and Abigail Moore won six singles matches as well as the doubles, with Terry Bailey adding another two ­singles wins.

Also competing in Division Two, the D team could manage only a 5-5 draw against the Broadway Musketeers. Julian Lugg and Andy Teemal won two singles matches each, as well as the doubles.

It was a similar result for the B team in Division One, with Yuci Gou ­making his Royston debut.

Gou and Gordon Barnes won two singles each, as well as the doubles.

The A team faced last season's Premier Division runners-up Arto's TTC A and suffered a narrow 6-4 defeat.

Dave Bridges, Simon Cockman, and John Manley won three singles and a doubles match, between them.

In Division Three, Royston's E team were no match for a strong Bedwell H, with only Fred Bendall winning a point for Royston in a disappointing 9-1 defeat.
