A narrow win. In the morning Bob Thompson got the first break and and had a win on the board while the rest of us were still coming to terms with reasonably fast lawns and the hot weather. John Bevington eventually got going and went from 2 to the peg after Cliff had got to 4-back, and after Cliff finished lunch was taken with Eric and Mike's game pegged down in the final stages. The afternoon singles then started. Adrian got the better of Cliff, but Eric came off worst in a pegged-out ending against Bob to leave Pinchbeck 3-1 up. John then beat his namesake to make it 3-2, and Tim recovered some form to beat Mike. 3-3. This meant Eric and Mike had to finish their singles, and Eric eventually got home +3. It could not have been closer. Many thanks to Gill Brewer for providing lunch, choc ices and trays of cooling drinks.
