MENS DOUBLES prelim round
R.Cunningham/S.Aylmore v D.Ingram/M/Cole @ the Henty
Neil and I battled out our match on my old friend the Riley from the Stadium back room now resident at the White Hart B. I was lucky enough to win 2-0. Many thanks to Barney who came along to score for Neil. I came along as Johnny no mates! But at least Old Riley was there!
TJ off at 4k, Mal first to get them back kick at 2k on the break, Jack 8k going bar gone puts one between 20/30 goes up table for it, and the drift takes it into the peg, relieved TJ and Mal.
Jack excellent 10k and touch 1-1
Mal off at 2.5k, Bob pegs split, Jack doesn`t get them back, TJ does off at 4k but then first to get them back again to make sure, very unlucky Jack who played an excellent first two legs.
Thank you to Rick and Doug for scoring it.
Just a footnote played at the Swan after our game as suggested by Bob who kindly came back from the Henty to pick Jack up to take him home, and suggested if the home team didn`t mind we get the game played last night as it was convenient to all involved.
I beat Ric 2 - 0 tonight at the Marine View. Table is probably the best Marine View table I've played on, although I bet you won't get the break first time and the D needs replacing as you can't spot the ball. Thanks to Barney for scoring both games. Met the new owners who were very welcoming. Barney now has a new friend (Stubbs the dog)!
Most serious forum user 2004/05 You know that look women get when they want sex? Me neither. "Spiderpig, spiderpig, does whatever spiderpig does. Can he swing from a web? No he can't he's just a pig. Look out here is the spiderpig" Homer Simpson, 2007
Chances for both in first leg, Chris losing decent break part way through 0-1. Chris winning second leg with first visit 1-1. Decider - Gary off at just over 4k, Chris responding with 5k. Gary with 3k break to finish off. Could have gone either way.
Eventually got to speak to Tony last night and we were going to try and play it on the other table if time allowed, but it was not to be. He apologised for not getting back to me despite numerous messages left, and due to him going on holiday Tuesday he has conceded the game to me, shame I always would rather play, will contact mick about the next round.
