Four Schools Match
- 19 October 2012
Our team of four comprised His Honour Judge Martin Beddoe O.T. (can't tell you his years or House, my apologies to him), who, I'm pleased to disclose, is our current Club Captain, and doing a cracking job of it. His morning partner was the great racketeer, Miles Connell who, as most of you know, has the best pair of hands in the business....(hope that makes up for my misspelling 2 lines previous, Miles!). They played v. well and won 5/4 against Marlborough's first pair. Our second pair, Sam Staveley and yours truly, did well enough, by being one up with four to play to take us to the Final versus Greshams. Though we trained well over a splendid lunch, we were not quite up to our best, pm. Miles and Sam came second by 3/2, against a pair in great form, while the Judge and I could not quite do enough (we needed to win by the same margin to tie)
Marlborough came 3rd. and Uppingham 4th.
As, ever, hugely enjoyed by all, like a fine wine maturing every year. David Biddle.
