Staffordshire (home) 27/03/2011
Notts v Staffs 27th March

Match report by John Auld

The final match of the 2010 -2011 season saw Notts at home against Staffordshire bereft of captain Eagling and the Aulds. Bereft or not the teams recorded their first clean sweep of the season -15-5, 14-6 and 15-5.

The teams:

Dawes: Willie Crook and Sandy Fulton; David Burgess and Gordon Fullerton; Keith Rodgers and Graham Lee; David Hodge and Mark Goddard

Porter: Kyle Lam and Simon Spencer; Martin Mellor and Carol Fisher; Mike and Daphne Coggles; Gerry Franklin and Steve Mulligan

Markham: Mary Cook and Bernard Moore; Janet Jacques and Will Irving; Daniel Crook and Alex Allen; Dorothy and Chris Close

The first board of the match was also the best:

All four Easts reached the ambitious  6S in the Dawes match. After North`s opening bid David Burgess made short work of the play eliminating the side suits before ducking a diamond to Norths honours. An endplaying intra-finesse no less.

Without help from  the bidding it is quite tempting to try a more familiar endplay cashing A of diamond early before exiting to a putative doubleton honour. One Staffs player went one down on this line. The void spade with North rather argues against ths line even without an opening bid (on best defence it is North who needs to have the doubleton diamond honour). 

Board 1 was a great play hand and board 16 was one for the competitive bidders. Enter Willie Crook and Sandy Fulton: 

Willie and Sandy diagnosed the huge fit and bid 5D at adverse vulnerability. North South compounded their problems by leading K of clubs covered mysteriously by North`s Ace. Now declarer could develop clubs via ruffing finesses and with one trump drawn cash clubs and cross ruff for 12 tricks. +950 combined well with +420 from team mates.

On a day of triple triumph several pairs did well but most hearteningly Kyle Lam and Simon Spencer  in the Porter match. A good day for the future, particularly with the arrival of Maggie Isabella Auld.
