27th Mar 2017 : Friendly at Sheen
Playing at number 1, Kevin played an outstanding technical player, but was outfoxed. Long rally's ensued, to give you an idea of how intense it was Kevin even removed his Tracksuit after the first game (unheard of in March) Kevin unfortunately went down 3-1 after a promising comeback in the second game. At 2, Euan went head to head with a chap who had no respect for balls or walls, hitting the ball with such pace that the neighbours may well have lodged a complaint. Unfortunately for Barnes he was also accurate, and for a big chap covered the court well. Euan looked like he would wear him down to win later on, but lost out 3-1 on this occasion. At 3 'El Capitan', as he is affectionately revered, Paul got the job done coming back from losing the first game to win 3-1. All games were close, with some long rally's, Paul's new found fitness seeing him through. At 4 Simon played Keith, who used play us in the Richmond tie. Simon won convincingly 3-1. At 5 Rich had probably the closest game of the night, in a match that involved more run's than a Brick Lane Curry festival. All tied at 2-2 the crowd 'Oohed and Aahed' at every point in the 5th. Unfortunately Rich just lost out 17-15 in the final game.
