GGCC v Rother Valley – SECF Handicap League Match

It is with a heavy heart that despite our best efforts I must report that we managed to place 2nd against Rother Valley, 4-5.

After a solid start in the doubles games, 3 of our singles games ended 6-7, giving RV a 4-2 lead going into the final stages.

As a reluctant skipper, I made the call to try to overhaul the deficit with some tactical handicap alignments. Andrew L and Andrew J (doubles) and John won their final games but I was unable to overhaul a -2-0 starting deficit sealing our fate for the final result.

Nevertheless, it was a lovely day in the sunshine and everyone participating enjoyed themselves (even the reluctant skipper!)
