Last weekend saw the trio of Lancaster Tennis Club’s junior teams clinch one Fylde League title and close in on another one after three wins against their respective opponents.

The Division One squad had a 5-1 win over Hambleton at Lune Road on Saturday to go 18 points clear at the top of the table.

Elliot Gardner and Dan Main had comfortable singles and doubles wins and young Joel McAllister, making his debut, teamed up with Oliver MacNeil in a crucial doubles win.

Lancaster now only need one point from their last two matches to clinch the title.

On Sunday, the Division Two squad earned the 5-1 win that they needed against St Chads to make the title certain.

Adam Hill clinched the crucial fifth win after an epic tie break and there were also wins for Joseph Hester, Oliver MacNeil and Matthew Cross.

Elsewhere the Under 14 squad of Owen Cross, Filip Stuchlik, Lewi Mackenzie and Jolyon Troughton travelled won 6-0 at Wrea Green to consolidate fourth place.
