Wyedean match away to Broadlands A

Ross’s third Wyedean match of the season took place on Thursday 27th November, in Hereford against Broadlands A.  Euan, Sam, Jess and Elin played away against this side.
The night started with Sam and Euan winning their first mens game comfortably, 16-21. The second game was a lot closer. Euan played a few between the leg shots which took the opposition by surprise and they managed to snatch the win at 21-23.  Jess and Elin started their match well and won quickly with a score of 13-21, 10-21.
The next two mixed games were close, with Euan and Jess and Elin and Sam taking both matches to 3 games.  These matches were mirrored, both pairs lost their first game, won the second and then won their third.  The scores for Elin and Sam were 20-21, 21-12, 11-21 and for Jess and Euan 14-21, 21-16, 13-21.
These first mixed games consisted of long rallies and fast attacking play which tired out the opposition. This became evident when the last mixed matches of the night were played, both Ross pairs beat the Broadlands pairs quickly with low scores.  Elin and Sam came away with a victory of 10-21, 8-21 and Jess and Euan won 15-21, 9-21.
The final score was a 6-0 win for Ross, this means that Ross stay second in the division behind St Whites.

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. 

 

October 22nd, 2014

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.
