The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
Steve Wells: December 2015
Tattenhall travelled to Crosby without their youngsters Max Harper and George Dobson (busy with their Thespian Activities ! ) , but, still hopeful of win against a struggling Crosby side.
The evening kicked off just after 7pm with Ketts back in at No1. He didn't look rusty after missing a few
weeks and took the first two games comfortably. Colin Rogers started to get back into the match in the
third, but, Ketts was just too strong. 1st match to Tattenhall.
Then Ricky Hall came up against POPS (POPS's first game back this season after suffering from tennis
elbow and adding a few extra pounds around the midriff. Pops was a bit slower than last season, but,
still had his full range of shots and controlled the game well, despite a valiant effort from Ricky.
Then captain Whitey came up against an enthusiastic Mark Halliwell. Mark ran away with an early lead in
the first with Whitey struggling to pick up Mark's winners. At 10-7 up in the first it looked like Mark
would take the first game but Whitey dug in and managed to scrape himself back into it to take it 12-10.
After that Whitey managed to keep his nose in front to take the match 3-0.
Then Giles went on against Suzanne. Giles was on fire and only let Suzanne win 6 points in the match.
Finally the no 5 strings. Young Jon Fell was looking sharp against old man Salty. Jon took the first and it
was looking like Crosby may win a match. But, Salty had other ideas and dug in to grind out a hard
fought win in the second game. After that young Jon lost a little of his fire and Salty won the last two
Well played Tattenhall ,now lying 5th in the division, but, commiserations to Crosby who battled well, but, only managed a point from the evening. Nevermind.... off to the bar for a lovely curry and a very pleasant chat!
