They had gone all fifteen games without a win this season and that wasn’t going to change this week when they faced the league leaders, Eltham Terrace Rovers. Rovers meant business and started as they meant to go on, taking the first set, 4-1 which included a break and dish from Ryan Francis. They impressed their superiority by whitewashing the second set, before finishing the game strongly with another, 4-1 set win, for an overall, 13-2 trouncing.

A Sunderland social club could soon be a thing of the past if plans to demolish it and build new housing get the green light.
