THERE was a shock result in the North Devon League as the men's Rock Park B team whitewashed the club's A team 24-0.

The only challenge came from Josh Woo and Steve Ebbutt, who tested Kyrian Okeremi and Charlie Logan in a 7-5, 7-5 win for B-team pair.

The arrival of Logan from Lyn has strengthened Rock Park B and with Okeremi he defeated Leigh Hughes and Andy Woo 6-2, 6-2 in the other rubber.
