The 5-0 victory was Haverhill’s 10th whitewash success of the campaign and also meant they finished the season on a run of 15 wins on the trot.

Needing eight points to claim the title, Wayne Bamforth came from a set behind to beat Nick Longman 12-15, 15-7, 15-8, 15-11.

The team’s highest points scorer this season, Tony Archer, breezed to a 15-4, 15-9, 15-6 victory over Steve Wrigley, before Nathan Ttophi twice came from a set down to beat Ollie Pynn 15-6 in a decider.

Gary Last kept the run going with a 15-9, 15-2, 15-12 win, while James Fitzpatrick finished the rout with a straight sets victory over Mark Childs, 15-10, 15-6, 15-5.
