Competition Sunday! – RESULTS

After a lovely DRY Sunday afternoon at Abingdon Utd FC starting at 1.30pm we managed to succeed in playing all the competition fixtures except the singles. We finished at 7.30pm and by that time most players were flagging. If it wasn’t for Committee member Roy Taylor’s wife Pauline, who very kindly donated refreshments in the form of sandwiches etc which we had around 5pm, I don’t think we would have lasted that long! However the bar was open the sun was shining and everyone was in good spirits for some great Aunt Sally.

As expected there were some were hard fought matches going 3-1-6 sticks when drawn after 3 legs, some not so much! Having two pitches meant that Abingdon Utd weren’t always at a home pitch advantage and thanks to Claire Foster and Roy Taylor for sorting the draws on the day we tried to keep both pitches busy. I tried to be the MC for the occasion and was glad Reg Couch brought the speaker and microphone!  I’d also like to thank both the ladies behind the bar, Brian Clapton (for dolls and pitch prep) and for those who volunteered (or otherwise) to ensure that matches were stuck up/called and scored.

There were several learning points the committee are reviewing so it can be improved if repeated next year. It’s been estimated that to run the remaining singles would have probably taken another 1.5 hours so these games will be rescheduled at independent venues to be decided by the committee meeting this week.

As this was the first ‘one day event’ for the competitions I think it went very well (and I’m not on the committee!) so if you were there and want to login and leave a comment on this post or email team support with some feedback it’ll all be welcome I’m sure.

As for the results below they speak for themselves with the two top Premier sides managing to fight it to the final for 5’s,4’s, 3’s, Pairs and Secretary’s! Well done for Bernisfield and Croft Nomads for hanging in on the Captains and Pairs.
