3 Counties Away at Folke
Saturday, 1st June, 2013
A huge thanks to all who played in this match but I don't even know how to write the result. We only managed a half against Folke and lost 4 games. Our Reserve Pair came up trumps though, winning 4 and 3. Part of the plan is for 3 Counties to draw members into matchplay (gently!) and Michael Scoble was a case in point. He played for the first time with Ray and every time I looked back he had a smile on his face. He definitely enjoyed it. Their win margin could be useful at the end of the day, should there be a tie on points.
One crumb of comfort, when Wincanton played Folke at home...described by Folke as their main rival...Folke achieved 18 points. They only had 15 off us. Ben Miller and partner won 8 and 6 against Wincanton: they only managed 2 and 1 against Sam and Hilary, so well done them. We wait for the return match!
Our team consisted of Sonia and Stephen Banks, Dave Baker and Nigel Brighouse, Hilary Dennes and Sam Clarke, Gill Edwards and Sandra Basford, Julie Taylor and Bridget Caddy, Ray Edwards and Michael Scoble. Thank you all.
Our next match is Saturday, 29th June at Wheathill against Wheathill B.
