Fylde beat Beverley 4-3

[<<] [>>] by Liz Wilson at Pendle and Craven
24th July 2007 (AC - Longman Cup)

This match was played at Pendle as the Fylde lawns were waterlogged.

Lee Hartley (4) & Betty Bates (24 - playing off 20) lost to John Kennedy (6) & Tom Judge (15) +14
Martin Bradshaw (12) beat Malcolm Lawrenson (18) +7
Terry Vernazza (22 - playing off 20) beat Mike Evans +20

All the afternoon matches were heavily contested. Lee Hartley who had been playing uncharacteristically badly eventually found form and managed to beat John Kennedy +3. Mike Evans was next to finish beating Martin Bradshaw +13. The other two matches went to time. Terry Vernazza held on to his lead to beat Tom Judge +7 winning the match for Fylde. Malcolm Lawrenson beat Betty Bates +9 to pull one back giving a final close result of 4 -3 to Fylde. Fylde would like to thank Pendle for the use of their lawns which have stood up to the recent bad weather far better than the other local clubs.
