Notts Northern 6 – 3 Broomgrove Combined (18/10/11)

Team – Sally, Laura, Mary; Stone, Craig, Steve

First of all- a welcome to our new players: Laura and Stone.

Well our first fixture of the season, and perhaps the furthest away, turned out to be a close fought match, but unfortunately a loss in the end.

Notts Northern are a side with formidable ladies.  In true form, they won both of the ladies matches well, but not without a fight from the Broomgrove pairs.  We won our first rubber of the night with a men’s victory as Stone and I won in three, but Craig and Stone were unable to beat the other men.  So at 3-1 down, we would need to fare well in the mixed matches.   Sally and Stone lost the first.  Both our 2nd and 3rd pairs beat their 3rd pair, but we were both unable to beat their strong second pair, despite both taking them to three games.

And so it was 6-3 against a good natured, strong side.  I’ll certainly look forward to playing them at our place.
