Teams Match v Deva Bridge Club

A few weeks ago I was contacted by Deva Bridge Club in Cheshire, asking if we would like to have an Inter-Club Teams match with their members.  Paul Smith took up the challenge and organised a mixed team from Newent, Ross and Hereford Bridge Clubs.  The match was held last week and resulted in a win for Newent, by a small margin.  The results were:

Newent Results first:  Match A   19-59,                      1-19

                                   Match B   35-7,                      17-3

                                   Match C   34-16,                    15-5

                                   Match D   18-35,                      5-15

                                   Match E   24-12                     14-6

I believe all enjoyed the event, and I congratulate all who took part.
