[<<] [>>] by Abdul Ahmad at Pendle
11 September 2009 (AC - Secretary's Shield)

Pendle Team: Andrew Webb 4.5, Abdul Ahmad 6, David Pollitt (Capt) 7
and Robin Delves 10
Hamptworth Team: Richard Stevens 7, Richard Smith 11, Trevor Angel 12
and Vic Stilwell 14

Before play started we wondered if we would be able to complete the day's
play before the rain came in. The lawns had only just recovered from heavy
showers during the previous days. Hampworth (near Bournemouth) had
travelled over 300 miles the previous day, to stay over night locally, so that
they would be fresh for the morning's play.

In the morning Abdul set the tone, with an early victory +16. Pendle lost
the doubles and David's match. David pulled back 17 hoops in the last half
hour. In the afternoon Abdul had another good win whilst Robin was back
in the pavilion early, not having scored and his opponent still having a
bisque in the ground. David won a close game to make it 3 games each. It
needed Andrew to win, whilst the other players looked on, which he duly
did win +10.
