A decent match at last!
We were on average one handicap weaker than them, but came out of the morning session 2:1 up. This is the first time this has happened in an A league match for a long time (for ever?).
Unfortunately neither Jon, nor Jolyon, played at quite the same level in the afternoon as the morning and although Alex won in an exciting 3-ball ending, having pegged out one of Alan’s balls, John lost the final game narrowly to Lizdespite a number of chances and so we lost…
Jon Diamond (0) & Jolyon Creasey (0.5) beat Chris Coull (-0.5) & Paul Castell (-0.5) + 3
John Greenwood (2.5) beat Alan Cottle (-0.5) +2
Alex Jardine (2) lost to Liz Farrow (1.5) – 17
Jon lost to Chris -11
Jolyon lost to Paul -14
Alex beat Alan +2
John lost to Liz by a small amount
