Report: 24-10-1999 – Mens 1st’s (2) vs (1) York University (Cup)

Brothers Paul and Jonathan Wiper ensured Slazenger 1st’s progressed to the second round of the county cup as they defeated York University 2-1.

Man of the match Paul Wiper gave them an early lead against their division four hosts, but Uni showed their mettle by putting Slazengers under increasing pressure as the half progressed.

Slazenger came out after the break refreshed and extended their lead through Jonny Wiper, but then decided to sit back and despite a great performance by debutant DJ Brogan the match finished a disappointing 2-1 with Slazenger due to meet Leeds Uni or Tadcaster 1st’s in the next round.
