Croakers' Ladies team played their first match of the new season last night, narrowly losing 4-5 to Ashby Ladies 1 in division 3. This was despite the Ladies team only being able to field two pairs.
Ayesha & Caroline took Ashby's first pair to three close games with hard fought rallies throughout, but unfortunately lost the final game 20-22. Ashby's first pair were by far their strongest pair and Ayesha & Caroline beat the second and third pairs convincingly. Sam & Kate played well too, beating Ashby's second and third pairs easily, but they also succumbed to the first pair.
Caroline, the team captain, said, "Not the best start to the season, but everyone played well, giving us hope when we have a full team."
The next match is against Huncote Ladies 1 on Thursday 5th November.
