The season ended on a high for both teams. Austenwood B managed to win 11 - 9 against Burnham B, thanks to a very good second half. Unforunately that was not enough to stay up in the second division, but almost. Austenwood A also won 11 - 9, beating Reading B. The A team will play in the second division next season, after a short spell in the top division.
Both teams were playing Thursday 5th April. The B team managed to beat Ascot B with 15 - 5 and has a chance not to be relegated to division 3. The last match, to be played 24th April, is crucial.
The A team lost against New Am B after a dreadful performance from the captain on the last 4 boards. Even with a good result we would have been relegated to play in division 2 next season.
The A team lost against Amersham CC A after a very late start due to three Amersham players arriving very late, so four boards wer removed. A revoke occurred on one board, but was resolved the following day. We have had more pleasant matches this season.
Chris Moir writes: I am very pleased to tell you all that we had a resounding success, winning 14-6 against a very good team, (Reading C). It was an enjoyable evening. I would like to say a special thank you to Clare who played for us at the last minute, as Amanda was unwell and also to Judy and David Cadwallader who joined us at short notice too.
Unfortunately, the top performance of the B team ony lasted 12 boards, (second half of previous match), and had a less good evening aganst Stoke Mandeville, losing 2 - 18.
The B team has come to a turning point. They lost their away match against a strong Bourne End A team with 4 - 16, or perhaps 5 - 15. Having said the first half was lost heavily, but the second was much better, with a +30 IMPs win. Now, just continue to play as well as in the second half!
The A team started the new year by playing Slough A at home. After an even evening, we lost narrowly, 9 - 11.
The B team lost their third match to Ascot A, which is a good team, just relegated fom division 1. The result was 3 - 17.
The A team travelled to Burnham to meet a very good Burnham A team, and, accordingly lost 2 - 18. Let's hope for a more successful second half of the season next year.
The best Lof8 team in the county, Reading A, visited us to play the A team. Being good hosts, we lost heavily, 12- 154 IMPs, (0 - 20 VPs). However, the match was played in the best spirit and everyone enjoyed the evening, despite the final score.
The B team lost their second match, as Bradshaws A won 14 - 6.
The A team's second match, against Loddon Vale A was quite tight, with a number of swings in the second half. Unfortunately the visiting team beat us with 13 - 7.
The B team started off very well and were 19 MPs up at half time, playing Burnham C. The second half could have been 'slightly better' as the final result showed that Burnham C won 15 - 5.
The season has started, however not particularly well for the A team as they lost to Thame with 17 - 3 in the first match of the season. Well, there are eight more matches to go. Still early days!
