The sheer weight of match reports have bogged me down. I’m going to have to give a very quick run through of the highlights I’m aware of and then post the league positions and my summary of the situation……..
This summary could of course be absolute nonsense as very little research has been undertaken…..
Normal service has resumed with the jewel in the Cardross crown continuing to win matches and promotion is looking likely into the incredibly heady heights of Division 2. Division 2 is fabled ground where players have two rackets the same, know stuff about string tension and probably don’t chug down Prosecco by the bottle post match.
I say if it ain’t broke don’t fix it girls. Prosecco it is……
I only received one picture and it was of Lorns & KT after an epic game where they won every set but needed 7 games in each one to prevail. 7-6 7-5 7-5
Last time I wrote an update the Ladies had just got out of the blocks and now they have finished their season already. Jill, Ronald et al sit atop their league with the other teams doing a ‘run chase’ to see if they can catch them.
As far as I can see they are secured promotion and await to see if Kirkhill can scoop 15 sets from their last two games to overhaul our warrior princesses.
Time will tell.
The weather has been great and I did receive one photo of Jill and at home match.
This looks like a very commendable mid / top half table finish. Still a few games to go and it does look as if there’s a few teams with a few more sets to come from their games in hand but I think our Ladies can be proud of this years play no matter how the cards fall.
And of course they have set the standards for the match tea to which we all aspire…..
This has been a tough season. Great games to watch but not any easy matches at this level. Looks likely our brave soldiers will be moonwalking back down to Div 4 this year but who knows that might re-energise the troops to bounce straight back up.
The one tragic tale which in typical style we have to raise a smile at is that after battling hard and taking Silver Medals all year our very own Keith was in pole position, one set up and 3-2 up when unfortunately he was dealt a savage blow and did his own version of ‘Devon Loch’.
When life gives you lemons guys………
Bawgate Jim’s trusty crew are battling on. After inflicting the first ever defeat on Kelvingrove, which went down fairly well after the guys initial shock, a couple of strong victories and promotion is a distinct possibility.
Willie is back from his overseas training camp, Harrison has finished his exams and the boys are ready for the run in.
We welcome the chase……
This has been a tough season as well. It looks like a relegation decider against local club Craighelen at the end of June could hold the key.
As always there’s been some great games and great entertainment all played in good spirit.
Well until Andrew pulled up lame, hobbled off court to inform Capt Wizzo he thinks he might be ok for the next game. Too late says Wiz. You’ve been replaced already. All before the sweat had dried on the bunnet.
The King is dead. Long live the King.
There’s a couple of stand out teams in this league who are barely dropping a set. A bit like Scottish football where we all battle to be the best of the rest our boys are currently in 3rd spot and doing well.
And before anyone else asks. Yes that tan of Graham’s is real. He’s retired man he’s just been out in the sun the whole time………honest
