The Craig -y-Dons did extremely well to overcome the formidable

After a slow start all looked as if all was lost, but after lunch and refreshments CYD came back stronger and won nearly all of their afternoon games.

A special well done goes to Alan, winning all four of his singles matches.

The lawns at Llanfairfechan where in great condition and a pleasure to play on.

As always our hosts were extremely hospitable and good fun to play against. A mention must go to our stalwart supporter Roger , who cheered us on from the sidelines
