With no time to get any practice in following the Christmas break Biggleswade lost to a strong Luton & Dunstable side to Langford Road on Monday.

Rich Anthony at string three opened the Beds League match against George Alan. Rich found the going tough and in a match of perfect symmetry lost 3-0 with each game ending 15-10.

Nathan Bascom promoted to number 4 took on Steve Wells and took an early lead taking a hard fought first game (16-14).

Steve bounced back to win the second 15-10 before Nathan took the third 15-7. Another lengthy tussle in the fourth saw Steve take it to a deciding game by edging this one 16-14. At the end of a gruelling match Nathan lost the deciding game 16-14.

Dan Easton at number 1 faced Steve Davies and lost an excellent first game 18-16. Steve’s class proved too much with Dan losing the next 15-11 and then the third 15-7 giving Luton & Dunstable a 3-0 win to take the match after three strings.

Marcus Gray was next up at string 2 taking on Sam McCoy. A close first game went to Sam 15-12 and in the second game Marcus was unlucky not to win the game losing it 17-15. The efforts of the first two games took their toll on Marcus with Sam winning 15-4 to secure a 3-0 victory.

Last up for Biggleswade and needing to win to avoid another whitewash was Martin Wright at number five against Sean Davies.

The first two games were one-sided with Martin taking the first 15-8 and then losing the second 15-8. Martin then took the lead winning the third comfortably (15-4) before Sean bounced back to take the fourth 15-10.

In the final game Sean maintained his composure to win 15-9 and take the match 3-2 giving Luton & Dunstable full points in the first outing of 2016.
