[<<] [>>] by Chris Weedon at Woking
9 Jul (AC - Longman Cup)

Longman Cup

Date: 09/07/24

Woking (home) vs East Dorset

Result: ED beat Woking 4-3

Conditions: Great courts. But weather wet and miserable, though the forecasts were a lot worse

Scores (ED first):

Chris Weedon and John Freeman beat Colin Groves and Sara Anderson +2
David Williams beat Colin Brim +4
Alan Jones lost to Andy Kelson -10

Chris beat Colin G +6
David beat Sara +11
Alan lost to Colin B -1
John lost to Andy -14

Both teams were well matched, with the#1,#3 and #4 players having identical handicaps of 3.5, 6 and 12. The only difference being #2 where ED gave a half to Woking.

The games were a lot closer than the scores suggest, with the winners coming from behind in five of the games.

Thanks are due to Colin and his team for their splendid hospitality, and the great courts ( despite last night's deluge!).
