STRATFORD A and Alcester B will contest the Wildmoor Spa League Junior Cup final after qualifying from the semi-final play-off event at Littletons Tennis Club this week.

The clubs played a round-robin competition, where each team played one set against each other, with the prize of a place in a full match final up for grabs for the pairs finishing in the top-two positions.

In the first round of matches, the Alcester B's Henry Beer and Oliver Linnell began well against host Littletons' pairing of Daniel Reynolds and William Bishop, eventually running out 6-3 victors.

On the other court, Stratford A boys Oliver Murphy and James Richards edged out the Pershore team of Thomas Edwards and Toby Atkin 7-6.

In round two, Alcester B defeated Stratford A, claiming another 6-3 victory, while Pershore recovered from their early defeat to beat Littletons A 6-3.

Alcester B maintained their 100 per cent record in the final round with a 6-0 success over Pershore, while Stratford A comfortably qualified as runners-up with a 6-3 win over Littletons.

The losing pairs at the play-offs, Littletons A and Pershore, were presented with individual awards for winning their respective pools.

Meanwhile, the other two teams will now go forward to play in a full match final, alongside the men's Inter-League Charity Cup final, to be played at Alcester Tennis Club on Sunday, 2nd September (2.30pm).

Their awards, along with cups and all the league trophies will be presented following the finals at the league’s annual presentation.

As current champions, this will be Stratford's second appearance in the final, while Alcester's only previous appearances in 2006 and 2007 saw them finish as runners-up on both occasions.
