Meanwhile Cullercoats Boys 16 and under are currently topping the Aegon Boys 16s Division A North League with three wins out of three after last weekend’s win over Collingwood.

Jordan Simpson and Rory Thompson, playing number one and two, were too strong for Olly Drake and Flynn Sygrove for Collingwood, winning both matches in straight sets.

As were Joe Whiting and Dan Simpson, who also beat Dan McDernmott and Harry Cox in straight sets.

Cullercoats sit top of the league with an 82 per cent win ratio and look like winning the league with a just a rearranged home fixture against Yarm to play.
