Double wins for Colingwood

On Saturday at Priors Park, Collingwood no 3 Josh Harrison won a straight sets singles and teamed up well with Matt Smith to also take the doubles rubber, also in straight sets.

With Matt Smith winning the no4 singles comfortably, Collingwood beat Ponteland 6-0 to go top of the Northumberland/Durham boys 12s A league.
