London Seniors 2017 vs Sussex and Berkeshire
Posted by PistolPete on March 13 2017 17:19:01
The London Seniors have got off to a slow start losing their first two matches in this years campaign against Sussex and Berkshire.
Sussex was particularly disappointing as after a shaky start, the London old boys found themselves the wrong side of 12-8 going into the final set. A fantastic rally saw them level to only to fall at the final hurdle :(
Well done however to Phillip Woollery getting 3 frames on his county debut and Rupert Ward with a solid 4/5
Final score Sussex 13 - London 12 - played 26th Feb 2017
Paul Gafa Won 0/2
Pete Thomas Won 2/5
Jerry Tickell Won 2/3
Glen Tingley Won 1/5
Rupert Ward Won 4/5
Phillip Woollery Won 3/5
The Londoners were always struggling match against an impressive Berkshire squad and we quickly floundered in the first set losing 4-1.
From then on it was always catch up and against a solid team, who would admit they had some run, the London boys were never in contention.

Some of you may have noticed we have a great squad this year with two current London A team players (Jerry and Rupe) and 2 previous A team regulars (Glen and Darren) it would be fair to say we haven't performed as the talent suggests. The standard of senior county pool has been going up year on year, so nothing is going to come easy but I'm sure the London Seniors will have a few wins coming their way before the year is out.
