MATCH SUMMARIES – JUST IN CASE THE CAPTAINS DON’T SEND IN A REPORT !!!
Ross C drew 3 -3 away against Cinderford C earlier in the week – only their second match, so a pretty good score line- clearly going from strength to strength, in spite of Mike’s comments about his game !
The Gloucester Mens team had a good result last night against Cleeve 1, winning 9-3, and thus gaining revenge for their recent defeat at Cleeve. It was a good match to watch – some very exciting and close games, and a really good final result.

Hereford – Division 1 – Ross away to Tenbury
Elin reports that the Ross team of Jess, David, James and herself went to Tenbury on Tuesday, where they had to play with their favourite shuttles ……. plastics ! Despite this the team all played well, and had a really good 5-1 first win of the season.

Deja vu – or I am predictable – because the first Wyedean A match last season was also against Five Acres A, and was when Andy L damaged his knee which kept him out for the whole of last season. Happily no accidents this season and Jess reports as follows :
Wyedean A away at Five Acres A
The team of Jess, Elin, Lee and Sam had a good match at Five Acres. Elin and Jess won the ladies easily, one of the games to 3 ! The men also won quickly in two games. Elin and Lee walked through their mixed games easily, but Sam and Jess took their time. The first match went to 3, with a win for Five Acres mainly because Jess and Sam kept lifting the shuttles and couldn’t seem to stop themselves from doing it. The opposition man was clearly pleased because he liked to play a very power filled game. The second game also went to 3, but Jess and Sam got their game together and won the final game 21-13. It was a 5-1 overall win to Ross. Happy days!

GLOUCESTER MENS DIVISION 1 – FIRST MATCH
Well – it could have gone any way ! At the end of the first 4 games it was Severnside 3 – Ross 1. At the end of the next 4 games, Ross had made a good comeback, and it was all square, Ross 4, Severnside 4. All to play for.
It was exciting to watch, and to the ‘completely unbiased spectators’ a draw seemed likely at one stage. But no, a real team effort had Ross winning 3 out of the last 4 games. Final result Ross 7, Severnside 5. An altogether brilliant opening match for Ross in the first division. Many congratulations and well played Euan, James, Lee and Steve.

ROSS MENS WIN GLOUCESTER DIVISION 2
For anyone who might not have heard, the Gloucester Mens team played a terrific match against their nearest rivals, Cleeve, on Friday which they eventually won 9-3. This meant that they won the league and will be promoted to Division 1 next season. Andy would be proud of them – a happy ending to their campaign.
