B Team v Shirley away 31 May

The run of success continues with a splendid victory away to Shirley with an overall score of

3 1/2 / 2 1/2, led by Gerry Donohoe as acting Captain. A warm welcome to B Team newcomer Alan Schofield too, despite losing together with his partner Godfrey Frith by 2/1. Better luck next time !! Our other losing pair and by the same score were Graham Hoskin and Bruce Wilson, not an expected result I'm sure. Showing them how to win were our pairings of Lalit Patel and Nigel Hinman, Gerry Donohoe and Ian Phipps who won 3/2 and Ian Sparkes and Dave Lakin who won 1 up. Gary Miller and Richard Blasdale gained a valuable halve too.

Well done to all, and many thanks again to Gerry for standing in as I recover from my self-inflicted injury. I hope to start playing again in the next week or two, wrist permitting, although recent results suggest a long term recovery might be best for the team !!

Match lists and team selections are on the board for upcoming matches so keep an eye out and add/tick your names as appropriate.

The new date for the B Team medal is Wednesday 23rd August.
