Uppingham 5 – 4 Mars (Mixed)

Chasing second place in the table, Uppingham needed to win their final game in Mixed Division 1 to be in with a chance. Facing the return fixture against Mars was always going to be a tricky night, and it proved to be just that. With more illness and injury amongst the home team, it was a night for guts and determination. The team pulled off a 5 – 4 victory with great wins in particular for Jo and Matt, who picked up two games to nick the match. All in all a terrific end to a season, and the team can now look forward to next seasons games with confidence and enthusiasm. A big thanks to all those that have played this season in the mixed team, and especially to Sian and Sherman for their captaincy efforts, a tough job at the best of times!
