Swindon men’s team secure their first win of the 2014-2015 season

On the 2nd of October the men’s second team played their first match of the season in division 3 of the Swindon league. The opposition were Brecon and the game was at home.

Following a few close matches, with Yannick and Will determined to halve every one (they succeeded), the overall score was 9-8. With one game left to play, the pressure was on the final pair to consolidate the victory.

The first end had been close so anything could happen. At 16-all Tetbury crumbled with 4 points practically given away to hand the opponents game point.

With an unfathomable resurgence the Tetbury duo fought back to 19-20 and then, disaster. To describe it as a mid-court collision would be kind. A collision in the right tram about a yard from the net would be accurate. Worse still the “clear” hung like forbidden fruit for Brecon’s Adam to pulverise into the open court.

The rest of the team couldn’t watch – especially captain Moss who was singing in the shower – as Adam did indeed pulverise it, straight into the net.

The rest, as they say, is history. The resurgence continued and we took a well deserved win.

What a great start to the season!
