A few nights ago our team played a Brigden knockout team of 4 match against a team from Ripley. We have known each other for rather a long time but I would still like to record what a pleasure it was to play this match in the correct spirit. Everybody can always do better. We all make mistakes but there was no criticism, no falling out, plenty of banter and also a nice speed of play (finished by 10.15).
It was a pity one team had to lose. Even more so that the margin of victory after 28 boards was 1 IMP ! So there were 364 tricks contested and 1 trick separated the teams. Thanks to all players involved. Trevor Pilkington
There were mixed result against top-of-the-table Gloucetershire, with both 1st and 3rd teams losing.
But with help from excellent results from Paul Knighton and Mike Douglas, the 2nd team won 16-4.
