UHBC 6 v 0 Spalding, H&P Men’s 4

A big thank you from the team to Duncan who taped up and stepped in to replace Dan with less than 48 hours before the fixture to help the 4’s in their 1st home fixture in this league.
Joined by Mark Burberry, Dave Brew and Mark Pridmore the team got off to the best possible start winning the 1st 2 rubbers both in 2 ends and conceding no more than 11 in an end. Mark Pridmore and Dave took this form into the next round convincingly winning to 6 and 8 whilst Mark Burberry and Duncan were forced to work harder for their victory which came in 16 and 18. With the win secured Uppingham looked to achieve the perfect 6 and did so with Dave Brew again outstanding, winning in 2 again, this time with Duncan 21:9 and 21:10. A 6:0 win achieved 12 games to nil.
We can expect a much tougher fixture in February when we travel to Spalding but for the time being this was a great performance. Well done to all with special mention to Dave who only conceded 51 points across 6 games for the match including a run of 12 consecutive points on serve.
