Home match against Surrey Ladies, we should get the win but this is pool and as we know from experience anything can happen.

The first leg was a tight one, Emma won a very close game but Lauren smashed it with a fabulous dish. Watch out Emma, Lauren is gunning for the top spot. Mel potted a great black to make it 6 – 5 to London. A very close start to the match.

The second leg was better, Sarah had a very close game and got the win. Linda doubled her last ball to leave herself on the black to win her game (This took me back to one of our many finals in Great Yarmouth when Linda did the very same shot to win the National finals). New player Claire Stork placed a good frame and Kate did a lovely finish to put us 13 - 9 up.

The third leg saw Emma lose a very close match (yes even the best can lose). Sarah played a fantastic frame finishing a very hard dish and Mel won her game with a lovely finish. Surrey dug deep to win some very close games and came back to made it 18 – 15. This was too close for comfort.

The fourth leg Emma and Lauren and Sarah got us off to a great start winning their games Mel played a great frame and Claire produced a nice finish to give us the win. Kat and myself also got a win making the final score 25 – 19.

Player of Match
Lauren, Sarah and Mel all played some great frames to get 4 out of 4 and were all in contention for player of the match.
I decided to give it to Mel as it was her first 4 framer for the county and she had played very steadily choosing her shots well and is defiantly a team player. Well done to her.

A great match as ever against Surrey who had us sweating in the 3rd leg, but we pulled together to come back with a very good win especially without our captain Sharon (she was on her hen do), Lucy (she was still making final preparations for her marriage to Sharon) and Charlotte.
Well done team.
