Cornwall v Somerset 2
Team; Fiona Rooke-Nicki Harris- Vicky Cornish-Emily Buckle
James Buckle-Simon Watson-Joe Wakelam-Dean Martin
A long drive ,a poorly lit hall and a very noisy Judo tournament in the other half of the hall did not bode well.
Sadly the singles put us 0-4 down and on the back foot. Our ladies doubles pairs played very well to secure all 4 level doubles ,again the men struggled some close games ..until Dean and Joe suddenly found their mo-jo and played very well to beat their 2nd men's pair !
We entered the mixed 5-7 down ,again some very close games but sadly when our third pair of Simon and Nicki went down 19-21 in the third are hopes of a point disappeared .
Journey home long and tiring but cheered up by a meal in Taunton to celebrate Christmas.
Hopefully the new year will bring us that litle bit of luck to start gathering the wins and the points
Many thanks to the team and especially team manager Mary
final score - Cornwall 11 - Somerset 2nds 4
