Somerset 40s vs Glos (H)
Team: Jason Flagg, Mark Yeandle, Chris Naylor, Andrew Carpenter, Nikki Harriss, Wendy Field, Jackie Malton, Karen Potter
It was always going to be a tough match as Glos have had a habit of winning the league since they joined it with a 40s team a couple of seasons ago. Unfortunately some of the usual Somerset players were not available.
Mark and Jason managed to take the first end against the first pair, but both mens doubles were lost. Wendy and Nikki squeaked the first end 23-21, but were not quite able to keep the pace and dropped the second and third ends. Jackie and Karen enjoyed their Badminton, but were unable to keep up with their younger opponents.
Things went a little better in the reverse doubles, with Nikki and Wendy beating the second pair.
Jason and Nikki played 1st mixed, Andrew and Wendy at 2nd, Mark and Karen at 3rd and Chris and Jackie at 4th. Unfortunately we didnt managed to pick up another end or win.
Well done for the 50s second team players for helping out the 40s team! Good food and a few laughs were had by all!
Final result Glos won 11-1
