Sussex v London Ladies Team Report
Posted by Sass on August 10 2008 00:00:00


After a month off it was good to get back into the county season again, but sadly we travelled to Chichester a player short. In a team with so many school teachers in it August proves to be a popular month for holidays! We all hoped that it wouldn't prove too costly.

Despite giving a frame away in each set we got out off the blocks running by taking the first set 8-3. Sadly we couldn't keep the momentum going and as the temperature in the venue rose to tropical levels the errors crept in to our game more so than Sussex's and we lost the next 3 sets by the same scoreline 4-7 - resulting in a 20-24 defeat.

Looking at the positives Corinne Grattan showed the form we all knew she was capable of by claiming her first 4/4 and I'm sure it will be the first of many. Sarah Macmullen also got 4/4, while Sue Studman, Anita Meggs and Bobby Preston all notched up 3/4.

London welcome regional leaders Kent to JFK's on September 14th.
