Draw v Sonics
An excellent game played in a really good spirit between the young team of Sonics with Jack Pugh, Joel England
and Chris Jennings against the more mature Kev Stephen and Dale of Draw.
Games went the full length but Sonics maintained the upper hand throughout with the experienced Jack Pugh
taking all his singles and part of the doubles team that won their game. Joel won two games and Chris won one.
From the Draw team, Kev won one and Stephen won 2 to give a 7-3 result to Sonics.
Sir James Knott Trust
The money has been put to good use in upgrading facilities at Kimblesworth, with umpire facilities which
eally goes down well with the younger members who are now undertaking Junior umpire courses, and
barriers to prevent the curse of balls disappearing under surrounding chairs.
The draw for the team part of the handicap cup has been made.
The draw is as follows
Silksworth B (Cup)
East Boldon Methodists B(cup)
Redby B (Cup)
Please find attached handicap cup details. Second round details are also given
Please note that it is upto the home team to give the away team two options so would offer Dec 2nd or 9th.
Please encourage players to enter players in the singles competition, I certainly think there are some
generous handicaps. E.g. Jack Pugh would get a 4 point start against Jordan Dove who he beat 11-6 in
all three ends. Jack Preston would get a 14 point start against Dave McAllister who he took an end off
when he played him
Chargers games is already organised for Monday Dec 1st at Silksworth.
Desperadoes v St Gabriels E
With a late withdrawal, the Desperadoes were only fielding John Reid and exciting new talent
Matt Greewood against seasoned campaigners Dave Aldridge, Viv Ford and Derek Buller of
St Gabriel’s. This didn’t knock the Desperadoes back as Matt produced a player of the match
performance winning all his singles. John beat Derek and Viv but Dave got the better of him in their game.
Unfortunately the doubles went the way of St Gabriel’s which meant Desperadoes drew the game at 5-5.
