O35 Team Plate final- home v David Lloyd

At #2, Christy took on Gary Livingston and came from behind to take the first two. The ball went cold at the second interval and Gary's timing went off so Christy got it 9-1; 3-0. Todd Mitchell went on at #4 with Raymond Ross, it went every-other-game to 2-2 but Raymond forgot his inhaler and ran out of puff; 3-2.

Mark Dutton went 1-2 down against Steve Hansen in the early tight games and just took it to 5 where Steve pulled an early lead and Mark almost brought it but not quite; 2-3.

Gerald got 4 points off Mark Rotton, that is not a reflection of his play which was excellent, but the David Lloyd man say getting everything back and hitting sublime shots himself; 0-3.

With the match poised 2-2, Alan Stokes went on with Alex Killick - it was going to be a back and forth match, except in the third game, there was a dispute with the referee, who retired and when it went to 2-2 and needed a fifth, Alan retired; 2-3.

Overall David Lloyd won 3-2 and retain the plate for the 3rd consecutive year, well done.

Just Alex and Mark stayed for food, photo below shows them with the loot...

A strange night's squash, typical end-of-season fare, some good chat in the bar about the line-ups for next year, the burnt pizza and stolen fruit contrasted somewhat.
