Melton OG’s 4 – 5 Uppingham (Mixed)

The mixed team set sail to Melton Mowbray missing their Captain for a crunch game against Melton OGs. With Matt Stevens and Nicky Fowler new to the team, the pressure was on! A night of highs and lows ensued, with some ropey tactics and gritty match play, ensuring that Uppingham came away with a 5 – 4 victory. Mark and Pam, back into the swing of things took all three of their games in straight ends. Peter and Jo took the two wins and the third pairing of Matt and Nicky produced some fine results against tough opposition, although came out on the wrong end of their games. It augured well for the future however. Well done all round.

Result: Uppingham win

1) Matt Stevens and Nicky Fowler
2) Peter Atkinson and Jo Corlett
3) Mark Burberry and Pam Giblin
