We played our second Lo8 game last night and our first at home. We were successful again, beating Lane End ‘B’ and gaining revenge for the narrow defeat they inflicted on us last season.
We raced into a 25 IMP lead in the first half, so could enjoy our half time tea and cake. Although the second half was closer, we managed to extend the lead a little further, finishing 37 IMPs up for a final score of 15-5.
Early days yet, but having played two games, we sit second in the league table.
Above us is Lane End’s ‘A’ team, who crushed newly-promoted Stoke Mandeville ‘B’ 20-0 in their first and only game so far, having been relegated last year. It’s looking as though they might be the team to beat this season.
There is now a slight hiatus before our next game, home to Amersham ‘B’ on Tuesday 12th November.
Thanks and well done to all who have taken part so far.

You can’t win ‘em all, they say, and we found that out when we came up against a strong and experienced Amersham team last night, losing our first game of the season 14-6. The first half in particular was quite a sobering experience. Our opponents made much better use of their cards than we did and established a well-nigh unassailable 31 IMPs lead by the break.
We gave a better account of ourselves in the second half, narrowly winning that one, but the damage was done.
Some good learning to be had from the hands.
The B Team Match 30th October - Nick
A tight match last night - we were just pipped at the post with 8-12 VP (69 - 82s IMPs) result to the away team. We were ahead at half time (33 - 18 IMPS) and the score was finally balanced at 69 each until the last board result came in :-(
