Stronger team wins out against Medway
The SECF level play league match played at Southwick on 7th July proved to be a one sided encounter. This was not surprising considering the handicap difference between the two teams totalled 47, the largest I can remember in many years of playing in this competition.
We must give credit to the visitors for being prepared to travel down with a team who each had a handicap of 10, to take on our minus players. In my email exchanges with their organiser I was told that they weren’t going to be a low handicap team but I wasn’t expecting quite such a difference!!
To avoid any individual embarrassment I won’t detail the scores in this report but will just give the overall picture.
Sussex A won the match 7-0 scoring 90 hoops to Medway’s 29 which included them winning a consolation game in one of the best of three singles.
The Medway team enjoyed their day out and appreciated our excellent lawns.
