Another busy week for our players, fortunately the weather behaved allowing us to play our previously washed out matches. But the temperature has dropped, so shorts are gradually being replaced with warmer clothes.

Wednesday 3rd, Winter League away v Benitachell, thanks again to members who were prepared to play when we were short; some for the first time in Winter League. Against the weather forecast we had rain on the journey north but fortunately it cleared before we started, although the green changed as the water dried out in patches & the strong gusty winds added to the challenge for all of us. However we had a great result: 10pts-0, 77shots-60.
Well done to all winners: Giuseppe Galelli, Sheila Cammack, Pete Ayres, Neil Morrison 19-11, Pauline Johnson, Bill Webb, Pam Lockett, Scott Malden (the “Comeback Kids”) 18-16, Jane Hamill, Terry Baylis, Tricia Reilly, Stewart Hamill 16-13, Chris Jackson, Dee Hoey, June & Keith Jones 24-20.
Southern League Friday 5th Lions away v Greenlands Oaks; we had some great comebacks making it a really close match; 2 wins each but we were just pipped on shots, 69-70, so 4pts-6. Winners: Trish Reilly, Vic Mahomet, Pat Reilly 19-13, Helen Hammond, Bill Webb, Scott Malden 16-15.
Tigers home v Greenlands Cedars had a tough match against a strong team, points 0-10, shots 50-107.
Hopefully after all the ups & downs we’ll try it again next week!
