U-League Team Update

By - 11th November 2017

RPCC fields two teams in this AC handicap league, with Team B only playing at weekends, catering for members in full-time employment.

Team A consisted of 7 players: John Knight, John Staddon, John Hyde, Simon Ling, Doug Dykes, Martin Peacock and Lucy Beach. They started by losing 2-5 at Medway, but then won 6-1 against Guildford and Godalming. A subsequent loss at Ealing, 3-4, was countered by a 4-3 success at Rother Valley. Overall Team A came 7th out of 15 teams.

Team B was made up of Roger Tedstone, Andrew Gray, Alan Slade and John Bristow, who got off to a good start winning 4-3 at Tunbridge Wells, followed by a win by of 6-1 on a sunny day at Compton. After that fortunes turned somewhat, Team B just losing 3-4 at Southwick and similarly 3-4 to Ramsgate in the last hour of the last play date of the league season. Team B came 6th out of 15.

Overall honours even for both teams.
