Chelmsford 2 - 8 Chopwell

The Chelmsford

Too little too late in the race for 5th spot I think, but I'll check for news from Jay (Wheatsheaf) after their game with The Turf. Strangely we played better than last week but didn't collect the points.


I had an awful Team game (40 average on the optimistic side), but cranked it up to win my Doubles game with Peter. I cranked it up even further in my Singles game but couldn't overcome Norman's two 140 shots with him throwing first. If he'd missed his winning double I'd have been looking at 34, so I certainly didn't bottle it.

Peter won his Singles game to get our other point, but there were near misses galore for us on a night where we played the game properly, but were just short of that finishing touch in hitting the doubles.

A fitting end to the season with us competing and making our opponents win the points rather than giving them away, and despite falling back to 6th or 7th in the League I really feel we showed ourselves to be a proper team this season. I should be a spin doctor or something :o)

Well, sounds like you guys had a good time. It really is amazing to look at the old pubs you guys play in... what a treat.
My family orgins are from the Isle of Man... we plan on making a trip in the next couple of years... The Chelmsford will be a side trip for sure.

Sounds great... still a few years out. It will give me time to practice up on my 501 so I can compete.

Dartdawg - forget the 501 business and just come down whenever you can. Your 501 can't be any worse than mine at the moment, and I beat Jay - so how bad must *he* be :o)

Only kidding - it'd be great to have a visitor from over the water, and we'd look after you.
