With Jonathan Kirk playing with a debutant to the mens team Scott Patrick they comfortably beat the second pair 6-2, 6-2. Playing against the stronger pair, Jonathan and Scott struggled to make any headway in the first set before edging ahead in the second set before succumbing 5-7. This gave Barnard Castle another 6 sets to 2 victory.
