GC Report

Our B level team of Judith Hand (4) Tony Frewin (3) David Dawsey (7) and John Skuse (3) travelled to Hunstanton to take on the home team of Pauline Donner (4) David Boxell (4) Sue Debenham (7) and David Brame (8) in our first B Level game of the season yesterday. Whilst Judith had travelled up the day before with her recently retired husband the three boys left Chelmsford at 6.30 and thanks to driver Tony arrived safely at 9.15am after a short stop for coffee en route. The match started at 10.00am with Chelmsford winning all 4 doubles and the first set of 4 singles with no game going to the 13th hoop. The next set of 4 singles were shared so we had at least drawn the 20 game match. Judith’s hard fought 7-6 win over Hunstanton captain David Boxell secured the winning points for us as we went on to win by 14.5 games to 5.5 and by 125 hoops to 100.The half point was conceded by Tony as the weather worsened as the final set was played. Unfortunately your scribe minus waterproofs played on and on in the pouring rain only to lose to jump shot specialist David Brame 6-7. That will teach him! A thoroughly enjoyable day (bar the rain) concluded with cakes and drinks from our hospitable hosts and we left for home shortly after 5pm.
