Return Skittles Challenge Match with Wessex MG Club


Thursday 4th October 2018

 

Following our narrow defeat by The Wessex Club in April, a return match was arranged on our home territory at The Beacon, Haresfield.

 

 

 

 

 

A team of 12 made the journey for the Wessex team and all arrived safely, although some had difficulty finding the venue! After a bit of a natter, play commenced. We played 2 legs before the food arrived and at that stage we were trailing several points behind the Wessex team, despite, or maybe because of, the friendly advice from Trev & others to the Wessex bowlers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Out came a succession of basket meals and before long, everyone was tucking in. The final 2 legs then got under way. We all gave of our best and by the end of the 3rd leg had narrowed the gap. We had a much better 4th leg, the highest leg of the night overall, however it wasn’t quite enough to win the day.

 

 

 

 

Wessex came out on top and took the trophy by the narrowest of margins with a score of 244 and Gloucester scored 243. One consolation was that Terry was the overall top scorer over the 4 legs with a commendable score of 28. So Brian duly presented the trophy back to Martyn, the Wessex Chairman and a return match next year was informally discussed. Hopefully we can take the Trophy away from the Wessex team then!

Thanks to all our team members for a valiant effort. Martyn, on behalf of his Wessex team, has also thanked us for a fantastic evening and they also enjoyed the food. Thanks to them for making an enjoyable evening all round – even if we did lose again!
