On a very hot day Reigate’s team of Frank, Simon, Joyce and Phil turned up at Southwick for the B league match against Sussex County.
Frank and Joyce had a torrid time of it despite their bisque advantage, and nothing seemed to go right. They eventually lost by 18.
Simon’s opponent with a 14 handicap played more like a single figure player, scarcely missing anything and winning by 16. Phil saved a little pride by running out of time just six ahead.
The match was therefore lost by two to one. However, after an excellent lunch supplied by our opponents we agreed on four 14-point singles matches in the afternoon which resulted in a clean sweep for Reigate – which made us all feel better!
