Team : Daz, Graham, Colin, Helen Rimmer, Jean Rimmer, Helen Pallett
Result : 13-5 Win
Good win on the night at an airless Wellfield. Daz and HP both picked up 5, but he who will remain nameless managed to pick up 6 for a change. So well done to him, and thanks to Daz, Graham and Helen for their help! Keep those 4 pointers coming…
Comprehensive win against weakened Evergreens side. Class told on the night with Jean Rimmer and Helen Pallett taking 6 each. Only the old men of the team and the up and coming youngsters playing at 1 dropped games. Our best winning margin of the season so far sneaks us up in to 4th place in D5. Great stuff!
I would like to add my congratulations to Monday’s night’s winning team and also the whole squad for the way you have all improved so much in half a season. From watching and playing at club nights and partnering several of you in 4th team matches I have been really impressed with your developing skills, enthusiasm, humour and, not least, your excellent on-court conduct.
This is the largest group of young players that I can remember playing at the same time for the club (and I have been around since Mark was a lad!) so it certainly bodes well for the future of St Andrews Badminton Club. The only worry I now have is that my place in the 4th team is becoming vulnerable, but I am up for the challenge!
We must also recognise Helen’s dedication and coaching skills which have given you the opportunity to play competitively and improve.
