10th JANUARY 2019

In a close match our younger GB Vets won at the top of the order to put us 2/0 up whereas our ‘older’ GB Vets went down fighting at the lower end so 2/2.

Unfortunately the Roehampton No.2 did not show so we won the match 3/2. However our No.2, Dave Smith played several games with other team members so he enjoyed a good work out!

Well done to new member, Francis Sancisi who won convincingly in his first match at No.1 .

In the doubles 3 of the 4 players were immaculately turned out in their pressed club whites and the 4th player was even more immaculately turned out in a blotched black and white cow shirt presented to the Roehampton captain on a recent tour of Jersey!

The match at Roehampton always runs to time and works like clockwork – 6.45 arrive, 7.00 three matches start, 8.30 match ends and retire to bar having already chosen dinner from the menu, 9.00 dinner served, 9.45 speeches and photos and home to bed. Great evening all round and thanks to Nigel Clarke for keeping us all up to speed.

Graham Chambers,
Match Manager.
