Avalon A Team vs Stockwood Vale B – Sat 6th April 2013
The A Team started their 2013 campaign in Division 3 with a home match against Stockwood Vale B Team. The matches were played in a good but competitive spirit on the best day of the year so far weather wise. It was almost warm enough to play in shirt sleeves!
The matches were competitive affairs but we opened the season with a good 4-1 victory. The opening match was hard fought but Gary Quin and Paul Ashman managed to halve the 18th to hold out for a 1up win. The match was levelled when Paul Lewis & Leon Matthews went down 2&1 to a very well handicapped pair, but Alex Fraser & Neil Jelly kept up their unbeaten home record with a 3&2 victory and the same result was recorded by Dave Jukes & Rob Edney. Ollie Worts & Ian Longhurst rounding off the matches with a convincing 6&4 win over their opponents to seal the 4-1 win.
Gail and her staff served up an excellent meal and Leon managed to relieve us all of some cash to start off the kitty for our end of season tour. Next match is on Sunday 21st April at home to Taunton Vale A.
