BERKSHIRE A 20 V 24 LONDON A

Our first away win of the season and a result that gives us a shot at winning the region.
That didn't look likely after Berkshire won the opening set 7 v 4 and the second set 6 v 5 to establish a 13 v 9 half time lead. However the London come-back had already begun by then as we had been 11 v 5 down midway through that set before taking 4 of the last 6 frames.
In the third and fourth sets we dug deep, played some good stuff and supported each other wholeheartedly. We won the third set 8 v 3 to nudge ahead 17 v 16 and managed to maintain that momentum to win the last set 7 v 4, Robbie Robb securing victory with a cool finish in the penultimate frame.
Four players won 3 out of 4, Joe Prince shading man of the match on this occasion, but this was primarily a really good all round team effort, a performance we can all be proud of.
Hopefully we can reproduce something similar away against Sussex next month.
