Patchy start before the league begins

Updated: Jun 11, 2019

The 2019 season began with a tough draw for Parley against Flights Falcons. It was a beautiful evening when Parley brought two new players into their line up. The team, Jon (Capt) Sally, Maxine, Eric, Ade, Paul, Juli and Tom played well losing closely in the triples to go down 2-0.

The doubles were a different story with Juli and Ade, then Tom and Sally winning easily before sadly Maxine and Jon failed to finish the match off. Result 2-3 to Flights

Twelve supporters braved the cool spring evening to watch an intense match. Best player on the night was Juli whose pointing was immaculate and helped Ade to a good win.

Losing to Flights meant that Parley had to contest a play off to enter the Plate proper. So the 3 Tuns arrived to find a very determined Parley and a difficult terrain.

The team was Jon (Capt) Sally, Cigden, David, Ade, Paul, Richard and Tom.

In the triples Paul, Richard and Tom lost narrowly while Jon, Sally and Ade stormed to victory. 1-1 after the triples.

The doubles was a different story. Paul and Cigden raced to a good win followed by Jon and Sally before Tom and Ade wrapped up the victory. Once again there were some steadfast supporters in the Parley corner and it was much appreciated. Best Player on the night was Sally whose immaculate pointing helped her doubles and triples to good wins.

Well done everyone. The league begins next week at home to Seahorses.
