On Wednesday 9th September, we hosted Ripley for our penultimate outdoor friendly of 2020.
We were fortunate to have a warm and sunny afternoon to play a match of three pairs. Our green is in splendid condition and playing really well, thanks to David and Debbie’s efforts, so an enjoyable afternoon was in prospect.
Home advantage was in evidence as the match began but Ripley soon became accustomed to how the green was playing. There was a lot of concentration required on both sides as we all tried our hardest. However, at the end of the match, Ripley had triumphed 40-44. Ripley also won on two of the three rinks, so congratulations to Ken and John on their win, 20-14.
We play the return match at Ripley on 16th September, when we hope for a good result.
