Woeful Week in Worcestershire (www)

Last week saw two teams visit Worcestershire, one on Thursday and one on Saturday. The first was an AC fixture in the Federation league. As a team, we came second with a score of 0-5. We wuz whipped! Worcester Norton certainly wanted revenge for the defeat at DG last year and got it in a big way. Your reporter managed 2 hoops in his singles in the afternoon…. Still, the drive there and back was nice, if a little quiet on the way home! That was due to sleepers, not the result…. They shall remain nameless!

On Saturday, the GC team visited Broadwas – oh! the delights of those lawns! – with Clive Moncrieff, making, I believe, his GC debut for the team. Clive managed a very creditable 1 win, 2 defeats, with 3 draws. The match result was 8.5 – 11.5 to the Broadwas team. Kevin Ham, Jay Dyer and John Cording made up the rest of the team.

Competitions – deadline approaches!

Just a quick reminder that the deadline for completing the first round of matches in the Dyffryn Cup and the Vase is rapidly approaching. They should be completed by 1st July. The manager is away – so the mice will not play? – at the moment. He’s probably sharpening his axe as we read….

Home Internationals

This weekend, 8&9 June, sees the Home Internationals being played at Budleigh Salterton. Wales take on the other home nations over two days, with each team consisting of 5 players. Each player takes on their opposite number in a best of 3 match. Wales have three Dyffryn players in the team for the weekend – Chris Williams, John Evans and Garry McElwain. The rest of the team are Ian Burridge (capt) and Rich Waterman. Pob lwc!
