Chelmsford 5 - 5 Blackhill Club

We had all three tonight - all of us

What a relief to get some points on the board at last. It is so difficult writing a blog with a 10-0 thrashing to try and summarise on the opening day of the season. You just see a big empty screen and somehow try to write something.

I must mention our sincere thanks to the new management for supporting the team so well. Angela bought us a new Winmau Diamond board which is great, and a buffet was laid on even though The Kitchen is being refurbished.

Kris got us off to the best possible start with a 180 for the first throw of the game. Hard to follow, and from that point onwards I thought we were perhaps 10 - 20% lower in the scoring than last week, but this time we were given a few more throws at finishing doubles by a Blackhill team who didn't hit their usual game.

They still made a tough game of it though, and after taking a 2-0 lead we traded points all night until we won the last two Singles matches to secure a draw, and as Roger jokingly said remain unbeaten on the new board.

Kris was Man of the Match for us and he leads the points table for our Player Of The Season Trophy - more details of this to follow. In a change to last season's competition others picked up Brownie Points too :o)
