Sadly we didn’t have a terribly successful time at the Mellin this year.
West Hill was presented in good condition as usual and we were blessed with warm sunshine.
In the over 65’s event, The Peter Burles, we faced Felsted and we lost 1.5:0.5
In the Plate our 1st pair, Tony Travers & John Fraser went down against Loretto. Our 2nd pair of Rob McCowen & Derick Fulcher won their match but went down in extra time at the 20th.
In the main event, the Mellin Salver for over 55’s, we were playing against Felsted. Our 1st pair of Rick Holgate & Steve Waud and 2nd pair of Patrick McGahan & Paul Ruddlesdin couldn’t quite manage to overcome their opponents. Our 3rd pair of Jeremy Waud & Simon Clapham managed a 2:1 victory.
Again, in the Plate, we faced Loretto (Winners of the past 3 Hewitts). The 1st and 2nd pairs couldn’t manage to tame their opponents. Our 3rd pair were 2 up when the overall match was lost and had to settle for a half.
Our thanks to Rick Holgate for organising our team.
