Disappointment vs Meyrick Park

Ricky hosted Meyrick Park last weekend for the return leg of the annual club match between the two clubs. A beautiful sunny day welcomed the players. Rickmansworth had managed a hard fought 3-3 draw away and hoped this would be enough to clinch victory at home. The day started well with the Captain (Graham Farmer) and John Shamoon winning their match 8&6, and scoring 47 points. The next two groups to come in were a loss and a half scoring 40 & 39 points respectively, leaving the match level with 3 groups to come in.

The next two were a mirror of the previous two, a loss and half with scores of 40 & 42 points. This meant it was all down to the last group of Ashley Pearce and Ian Mackie needing a Ricky win to level the match. Unfortunately, even though they scored a fantastic 45 points, they went down 2&1, their opponents scoring an incredible 49 points.

Even though we lost, the match was played in a great spirit and we look forward to the fixture next year. I would like to thank everyone who played and better luck in the next match.  2016 Men’s friendly match results
