[<<] [>>] by Keith Southern at East Dorset
13th June 2023 (GC - Inter-Club Shield)

East Dorset defeated Cheam 4-2 with one morning rubber pegged down at lunchtime and not continued. The two teams were identically matched on handicaps so it was no surprise that there were a number of very tightly fought and close games, with 5 decided at hoop 13. The match was played in pleasant sunny weather, thus excellent playing conditions.

Teams and handicaps :

East Dorset : Keith Southern (2), Tim Hughes (3), Mark Hamann (3), Sandra Allan (4).

Cheam : John Horne (2), Beryl Hughes (3), Robert Cook (3), Tony Nicholas (4).
