Garstang B v St Andrews E

Team: Richard, Graham, Stuart Helen A, Anne, Hannah B
Result: Won 13-5
Another great result for the Rubies which puts them 3 points clear at the top of Div 6 at the halfway point in the league season. Again we had to make some changes to the team due to player unavailability but Helen Anne and Stuart showed they were well up to the job. The men took all their 4 games but the ladies struggled to get going and dropped 3 games. So, having won the first mixed and lost the 3rd couple mixed in event 6 we were 7–5 up but this left no room for error if we were to go home with all 4 points. Our rising star Hannah had a disappointing night compared to her recent performances but perhaps this was understandable as she had bagged 4 games playing for the D team the night before.
So, it was left to the older end to do their stuff, which they did in some style. We all came back down the A6 happy with an excellent Friday night’s work. Richard and Helen paired really well, winning 6 and 5 games respectively. Graham at long last got his 6 too. (I cannot remember ever getting 6 before, if I have, it was several decades ago in the Green Flash age)
