Grange 4 @ Abercorn 2 on Wednesday Oct 1

The first game of the season saw us make the trip to play Abercorn 2 at the Abercorn sports club located on the east side of Edinburgh.
First up against a much changed Abercorn line up were myself and Dave Grieve playing 5 & 4 respectively. I was playing Adam Robinson and I was always in control of this match and won the rubber 3-0, 9-1, 9-0, 9-1. Meanwhile on the other court Dave was taking time to warm up against Murdo Walker and lost the first set 9-3, the second set was a much tighter affair with Dave managing to take 9-7. With Dave fully warmed up by this time the next 2 sets were over quickly with Dave winning 3-1, 3-9, 9-7, 9-1, 9-0.
Next up was Tom McEwan and Catherine John playing at numbers 3 & 1. Tom had a comfortable win over Peter O’Connor with a 3-0 score line of 9-0, 9-0, 9-1. On the other court Catherine was playing Marek Rak and an entertaining match was won by Catherine 3-0, who displayed better consistency throughout the match with a score of 9-6, 9-2, 9-1.
Anthony was last up playing Neelu Sarkar @ #2. This match was quickly wrapped up by Anthony who won 3-0 with a score of 9-1, 9-1, 9-3.
Match results including ref points was 20-1 to Grange 4. We then were treated to an assortment of pizza, birdies & mini sausage rolls followed by strawberries and chocolate biscuits and a drink of our choice before heading off home.

The food sounds tremendous, especially the birdies. Quality pudding.
