Sunday 18th December and our 2nd Shires match of the season was against Lincolnshire at home.
We had our usual side out with the exception of Ayush who is in India . Tom Platzer stepped in and was made to feel welcome by all the players in his debut match.
We started the match with the mixed and comfortably won all 4 matches, then on to the singles where the girls didn’t struggle, winning all 4 matches only giving away 24 points in total over all 4 matches! Well done girls. The boys shared the singles winning 2 out of the 4, Owen had a gruelling 3 setter, losing the first game but fighting on to take it to 3 ends, unfortunately he lost the 3rd end to 17. Our rookie player Tom did us proud by winning his singles which also went to 3 ends.
We then went onto the doubles and a pattern was emerging as the girls comfortably took all 4 matches again and the same as the singles the boys won 2 out the 4 matches.
It was obvious that Lincolnshire boys were stronger than their girls but our girls were very professional and did exactly what they needed to do for the team to win 16-4.
The girls have definitely taken a lead from this weekend with the little competition I am running for points given away in singles, come on boys you have some work to do now!
Well done to all the team.
