O40s vs Wiltshire (home)
Team: Jason Flagg, Simon Ashenden, Barry Harriss, James Buckle, Wendy Field, Nikki Harriss, Fiona Rooke, Emily Page-Symonds
Both mens pairings of Jason / Simon and Barry / James took the Wilts 1st pair to 3, but Barry and James managed to sneak a good win. Both pairs beat the Wilts second pair so the mens were 3-1 up. Good work fellas!
Nikki and Fi romped to 2 good wins. Wendy and Emily managed a good win against the much weaker Wilts 2nd pair, but went down 29-30, 16-21 to the first pair.
By this time Wendy was scheming with the Nikki and Fis kids on a bit of a surprise for later.
Nikki and Jason had a good solid 2 set win. Wendy and Barry got their monies worth but eventually took the 3 end 21-16. Fiona and James also took their time and also came out winners by taking the 3rd end 21-15. Emily and Simon romped through their 4th mixed in a solid 2 set victory.
With it being close to birthdays for both Fi and Nikki some small celebration was required. Adam, Matthew and Alex were able to set the candles in the Profiterole tower, light the candles and with the help of Mary Buckle for timing, bring it out at the right time after the mixed and sing Happy Birthday. Well done boys - good job!
Result - Somerset won 10-2
