Allonbys lead Collingwood Tennis Club teams to victories

Gabe Allonby played a pivotal role in Collingwood boys’ 14s and boys 16s victories last weekend.

Playing in a strong Collingwood team with Matt Smith, Sam Allonby and Alex Jay, Gabe Allonby won his singles comprehensively, as did brother Sam.

Smith had a tough tussle in his singles but came through well in three sets.

Smith teamed up well with Jay to win the second doubles and the Allonby brothers showed good team spirit to win their game for a 5-1 victory, which secured top spot in the Aegon 14 and under league.

Gabe Allonby stepped up to the 16 and under league on the following Sunday and due to a high rating had to play number one singles but performed fantastically well in a 6-0 Collingwood victory over Gosforth Garden Village.

Sam Allonby, team captain Miles Pearson and Noah Neill won convincingly in a good opening Northumberland league victory for Collingwood boys’ 16s team.
