40s vs IoW (away)
Venue: Away to IoW, Sandown
Team: Barry Harriss, Simon Ashenden, Jason Flagg, Chris Naylor, Kerry Mullen, Jane Lipton, Sarah-Jane Trask, Emily Page-Symonds
Having already changing the date of our home match vs IoW this season, thanks to IoW allowing us to rearrange our last match of the season. Thank you to Barry Harriss for being captain for the day and organising the transport to the IoW. Always a long day, but always a warm welcome on the island.
Some of the usual 40s players were unavailable, but more that for the original date. Chris and Jason managed 2 good wins in the levels. Simon and Barry dropped 1 end en route to winning both levels matches.
The second IoW ladies pair gave both our ladies doubles pair a bit of a problem with both of our pairs going to 3 sets against them. Kerry and Jane came up on top in both of their games, while Sarah-Jane and Emily dropped the first game of the match.
In the mixed Jason and Sarah-Jane werent quite able to get a win and lost in 3 sets, the experienced pairing of Barry and Kerry were the only pair of the day to win in 2 sets, the third pairing of Simon and Emily and 4th pairing of Chris and Jane both won in 3 sets.
Well done team!!
Final result: Somerset won 10-2
