Cippenham-County-Seniors-2017

 

The Gloucestershire County Senior team this year included Stella Honey, Emily Philp, Olly Tyndall, Billy Shilton & Dave Harvey. Playing in Division 2B the team travelled to Cippenham, Berkshire to play all 7 matches over the weekend. They had a tough start on Saturday losing 3-7 to Bedfordshire, with Stella, Emily and Billy scoring 1 apiece. In an easier 2nd match, it was Stella, Olly and Dave who all came away with maximums, backed up with 1 apiece from Emily & Billy. After lunch it was Essex 2nds, where 7 out of the 10 matches went to a 5th game, with maximums from Olly, Billy and Emily, with 1 a piece from Dave & Stella they won 8-2. The afternoon finished in fine style, with a convincing 10-0 win over Wiltshire.

Back early in the morning on the Sunday, they played a crucial match against Hertfordshire, as both teams were tied on 8 points at the time. With maximum wins from Dave & Billy, and 1 apiece from the others they moved above them in the table with a 7-3 win. Oxfordshire were up next and it proved a very close affair from the start, with the 6-4 win only being secured in the very last match of Billy's which went to 5. Finally, they had to play Sussex 3rds and with all the players feeling a little fatigued Dave won his final match to secure a 5-5 draw.

Overall all players in the Gloucestershire team were pleased with their performance, finishing in second place behind an undefeated strong Bedfordshire team.
