Men’s Winter League

 Division 5

The campaign started off on a rather wet note as the first match against Compton had to be abandoned after an hour’s play, and rearranged.

The next match against Totton ‘B’ was also played between heavy downpours but we managed to play to a finish, unfortunately losing 3 – 6.

This was followed by another defeat against Thornden ‘C’ by 3.5 – 5.5.

We finally achieved a victory against Bassett ‘D’ by 6.5 – 2.5.

The next match against Wellow ‘B’ proved crucial as a win (or as it turned out, a draw) would have ensured finishing outside the bottom two teams. Unfortunately, we narrowly lost 4 – 5.

A win in the next match against Compton ‘B’ would have still left us with a chance of avoiding a bottom two place. Once again this was a very tight game eventually finishing in a 4.5 – 4.5 draw.

This left the proverbial ‘mountain to climb’ as the last match of the season was against the Division winners Wellow ‘A’ and we were well beaten 1 – 8.

Unfortunately this left us finishing the season 6th of the 7 teams.

Many thanks to all who played during the season.
