On Wednesday 12th May, we hosted Oatlands Park for our initial Wednesday friendly of the season. This was the first time we had played Oatlands Park, so we were looking forward to the game.
It was a sunny afternoon following a wet morning, but the playing surface was in splendid condition as remarked on by the Oatlands Park players.
We played three triples, winning on two and losing on one, with a final score of 58 – 49 in Merrow’s favour. Our top triple was led by Wednesday Captain Allen Mead, ably supported by two of our new members Steve M and Allen J.
At the end (thanks to Debbie and David) tea and biscuits were supplied outside on the tables in line with the Covid restrictions. A very enjoyable afternoon and we look forward to playing at Oatlands Park next season.
Our next Wednesday match is away to Mayford Hall on the 19th May.
