Message from Jennifer Clough:

Hello

I’m sorry for the delay – here is the full draw for the preliminary and first rounds of the cup competitions.

I have drawn the home teams for both the December and January rounds. The teams in bold letters, marked with * are the home teams. Under rule 40, the home teams will be drawn again for the second round after the first round is completed in January.

I hope the draws help with booking halls.

Kind regards

Jennifer

St Andrews “E” v Clayton Crusaders “C” – 29th Oct 2012

Team: Zoe, Jane, Anne, Robert, Henry, Richard.
Result: Won 10-8
Close opening games set the tone for the whole match but both were lost whilst Robert reminded Richard what the stringy bit was for. Convincing wins for Anne and Jane then 4 more very close games with setting in Zoe’s left us 2 adrift by the end of the levels. More close games levelled the match after event 6 before Henry and Zoe got into their stride to take us 2 ahead. A slight wobble gave Crusaders the chance of a draw but in the final game Henry and Zoe were having none of it and changed their gameplan to snatch a well deserved 10-8 victory. A great match with 10 close games and Anne as top scorer with 5.
