Shotley Club 5 - 5 Chelmsford

Personal disappointment for me, as I was dropped with Lena correctly opting to stick with the team which had done so well the week before. The decision was proved correct as The Chelsmsford piled on the pressure and took a 3-0 lead before dropping back to just take the 5-5 draw on the night. Every point was close, and if it was to go either way it should have been our game.

It was important not to lose ground against Shotley Club though. They're just above us in the League, and the 10-10 result over both legs is one which we'll just have to be happy with.

Man Of The Match goes to our new player Brian, who won all three games he was involved with (as did Willie), and he overcame some bad luck throughout to ensure he sunk the winning doubles. Well done also to Jean for her superb 68 finish in the Team game; our highest finish on the night.

I was posted to Dominos duty, but was delighted to win 3-0 in my first ever game for the team against Dennis. I compete well in everything I try, so this was not a surprise to me, but I must admit I'd have prefered to chuck darts instead.


So, we now have a strengthened team who don't like to lose which I need to fight for my place in. I only wish we'd started the season like this :o)
