Match Reports

The latest edition of the Bugle brings good and bad news. First the bad - Herne Bay 'A' lost to Sandwich in the EBA Double 4's. It was unfortunate that 5 members were obliged to represent the club in a mixed triples league game that same afternoon. Playing two games  one directly after the other was not the best preparation to play against a very strong Sandwich side who obviously have strong aspirations of winning the EBA title outright. The team and myself would like to thank Joyce for once again supplying a splendid meal.

Better news on Saturday morning when Herne Bay defeated Deal 4-1 in the Top Club. Splendid wins in the Fours (Bob Baldwin, Paul Evans, Jim Watson & Eddie Allen) 20- 12 and the Triples (Steve Brown, Andy Godsell & Scott Whiting) 22- 11 were complimented by two of the best single discipline matches  that one could wish to watch. First David Mason won 15 - 10 in the two wood. This was a very close encounter that was not decided until the closing stages when "Mace" forged ahead. Joe Kelly truly sparkled in the singles having been 8-14 down at one stage and seemingly on the rack only to storm home with a 22- 19 victory. My congratulations  on a terrific team effort. 

We play Canterbury or Lenham in the next round & I have offered them - Sunday 19 June, Thursday 23 June and Sunday 26 June all at 6pm.

Finally the team and I would like to thank Stan for Umpiring, Roy & Brian for marking, Angie & Brian for a first class "kitchen job" and last but not least all of those supporters who gave up their time to come and offer their support.
