Mens A vs Aldershot Methodists

We came out of the blocks quickly in 2016 with a fantastic result away from home on Saturday, claiming maximum points in an 8-1 win against Aldershot Methodists.

It was a typical drizzly, damp January Saturday and our usual line-up was changed a little with Mr T. (Junior) making a guest appearance, filling in for myself. Sam obviously hasn’t lost his ‘class’. I understand that he and Kev were pushed a little in the first rubber, eventually winning in a champions tie break. After that, they then cruised through the second.

Shaun and stand-in el captain Jamie survived one scare in the first rubber, saving 2 set points but winning the tie-break in the end. They then cruised through the rest of the match.

This win puts us in a superb position in Division 1. We’ll have 78 points with 3 matches to play. All the remaining matches will be toughies, however.

I will confirm the line-up for this Sunday against Bourne C tomorrow.
