B Team v Shirley 7th September

On another balmy afternoon our bold heroes set out to avenge the 4-2 defeat earlier in the season by our visitors from Shirley. Many thanks to all, particularly Colin White who stepped in at the last minute to ensure we had a full team, and what a team it was !

A splendid victory  by 4 1/2 to 1 1/2 ensued.

Jim Wild and Peter Meaney our highest winners at 6/5, followed by Steve Cottier and Lalit Patel winning 4/3. Derek Birt and Mike Symons won 3/2 and Nigel Hinman and David Goodhead came in 2/1 up. Peter Harrison and Gary Miller halved their match while the naughty boys corner awaits Martin Dalton and Colin White who lost by 2.

The results so far this season have us losing 8, winning 6 and 4 halves but there is still time to pull this round to a winning season. We have four matches left : Handsworth away on 14 September, Fulford Heath at home on 21 September, Robin Hood at home on 5 October and the rearranged fixture away to Fulford Heath on 13 October so please get your names on the lists for these so we can do our best.

Also on the B Team notice board is a spreadsheet of upcoming B Team Dinners so if any of our players this season want to represent OGC put your name in the spaces and let me know. We are very close to reply dates so please do this as soon as you can and let me know.
