Final result - MCC 5 Seacourt 0

In the opening doubles, Peter Jarvis and James Acheson-Gray�s play was crisp and incisive and they never looked like being troubled.

Highlight of the day was a spectacular and memorable match between David Harms and Luke Danby, undoubtedly the best in the years the Final has been held at Moreton Morrell. Danby played through the pain of an injured hand but Harms won the key points decisively particularly at 4/4 in the third set.

Ivan Snell needed to pull out the stops against William Maltby but the Chairman of the T&RA�s preparation 2 days earlier on the court, paid dividends and he just won the second set despite Snell�s relentless comeback from 2/4 and with great relief after last year�s bombardment from Louis Gordon!

In the dead rubbers, Mark Howard was too clinical for Charlie Danby and Mark Matthias and Neil Roxburgh cruised past Paul Weaver and Alan Fine.

Once again it was a thoroughly enjoyable day made possible by the generosity of Pol Roger. Tom Granville and Nick Jury were thanked for their contributions to the day�s success.
