Debut at the Manor
After an absence of several years from the men's badmington league, Burton Manor got off to a flying start this week with a hard fought win over local rivals Stafford.
There was certainly plenty of nerves visible from the Manor side who were fielding three league newcomers but they netherless managed to share the opening four games with their opponents before settling down. In front of a crowd of supporters the next three games went to the home side ensuring the win before another game apiece made the final tally a 6-3 victory for the manor.
All three Burton Manor pairings won but special mention go to Tim Norbury & Pete White for an impressive 3 out 3 wins.
The next game for the Manor is at home on the 9th November and they play host to Lichfield team 3 Spires.
