The Men fielded a strong team to get the better of the Legionnaires. Stan beating Eric. Frank just getting the better of Keith. Father John just losing out to Simon in a high scorer in the match of the night. Dec beating Pete in a tight game.
In the doubles. Stan and Dec beating Steve Hawks and Eric (good to see Hawksey making a return, obviously limbering up for the World Championships). Frank and Father John losing to Simon and Keith.
Some good scores for the OTS format by both teams' players.
White Hart 7 - 1 Henty "B"
BB just getting in front at the end over Big Boy Lady H won with a high score over Wayne James beating Dave F A fortunate Gareth beating Russ. Poor Russ a mile clear and black pegging near the end.
James and Gareth beating Wayne and Big Boy in a low scorer. BB and Lady H well clear (they had already paid out in the silver ring) over Russ and Dave until BB black pegged near the end, what a numpty.
As usual a good entertaining night when these 2 teams meet along with the banter that goes with it.
A lot of people have been asking as to the whereabouts of the Coach. He recently had a stroke and had to go to hospital for a few weeks to recover. He is on the mend and now back at home. I visited him a couple of days ago and he is in fine spirits. I am sure we will see him demonstrating his prowess and mastering the green baize at some stage.
