Fylde 8 Westmorland 9 plus 1 drawn game

Our first league match of the new season started with some promising weather after yesterdays downpours although the lawns were still pretty sodden but certainly playable.

For the 1st 20 minutes we had to play 'hunt the hoop holes' on lawn 3 and finally left John with the task and swapped to lawn 5.

Fylde: Alan Moreton 4, Jan Smith 6, Cyd Harbottle 11, and Sue Elsmore 11.
Westmorland: David Snaith 5, David Edwards7, John Burrows 9 and Eve Gardner 11.

Alan and Jan took on the two Davids winning 7-3.
Cyd and Sue played John and Eve winning 7-3.

Alan lost 5-7 to John, beat Eve 7-6, beat Dave E 7-5 and drew against Dave S 5-5.
Jan beat Eve 7-4, beat John 7-4, lost 4-7 to David S and beat Dave E 7-2.
Cyd lost 3-7 to Dave S, beat Dave E 7/2, lost 4-7 to Eve and lost 1-7 to John..
Sue lost 3-7 to Dave E, lost 6-7 to David S, lost 1-7 to John and lost 3-7 to Eve.

Fylde had their nose in front all day but the final result rested on the two final games. Unfortunately we lost 1 and drew the other leaving Westmorland winner by 1 point. It was a lovely day and the sun had come out to play as we all ate our lunch al'fresco.
