|Sussex County||Home||2nd September||Won 5:2||Our second win in this League!! They did put out rather a weak team though, with only 1 player below a handicap of 2.5.|
|Surbiton||Away||15th July||Lost 2:5||An improvement on last year’s result, but we’d still like them to put out a C team!
AM: Alex Jardine (1) & Jon Diamond (1.5) lost to George Noble (-1.5) & Sam Murray (-0.5) -16, John Hobbs (3.5) lost to Andy Dibden (1.5) -8 and Mick Belcham (4.5) beat Mary Knapp (1.5) +13
Alex lost to George -26tp, Jon lost to Sam -6, John beat Mary +3 and Mick lost to Andy -13
In fact we had a number of opportunities to do better that we spurned – John missed taking a lift and also left two balls on B baulk when a lift was due… But the most obvious was Jon failing at Rover from one foot with his second ball, when he was all set up to peg out one of Sam’s balls and then go into a (hopefully winning) 3-ball ending.
|Woking||Home||9th September||Lost 2:5||A slightly weaker and late arriving Woking team than usual (thanks M25!) gave us some hope this year, especially as we ended the morning one game all and the other with Alex well in the lead.
Sadly this was not to be as we lost 3 games in the afternoon. Jon was unusually incompetent in a tough game anyway. Jolyon and John couldn’t quite get it together, although they had chances. And finally although Alex won his difficult game, he couldn’t quite close out the other one and the match ended with a comprehensive defeat at 6:30pm.

|Reigate Priory A||Home||14th August||Lost 1:6||Richard Mann was the only winner, of his singles game, with John Hobbs unable to hit anything reliably and John & Geoff Croxford losing the doubles without making a hoop…|
|Sussex County||Away||4th September||Lost 3:4||A clean sweep in the morning of the 3 games was followed by a whitewash in the 4 in the afternoon…|
