Broomgrove Women 4 – 5 Oakbrook (20/11/09)

here’s my match report for last night. Broomgrove v Oakbrook – 20th November – which ended Oakbrook 5 – Broomgrove 4

I feel very torn in two over this match: half disappointed; half proud… 4-5 is SO close! And one feels a strong sense of so near and yet so far. As ever, Anne Bennett and her powerful partner were our undoing. They are strong, experienced and canny and they beat us all. Iris and Susan and Sally and I were able to win our other rubbers giving us the 4.

BUT, and it is a big but, Sonja and Judy played some seriously good games despite being robbed of a victory. Judy (my friend from Sheffield University who is bravely subbing for us) has never played a match before, and Sonja, also meant to be a sub, actually turns out cheerfully for every match! They were great. And after all, 4-5 is no disgrace against a club that was playing in the first division last season. So, yes, we lost, but I’m still proud.

Thanks team.
