On Saturday night (yes, you read that correctly), the Mixed 1 team lost 2-7 to South Leicestershire Mixed 4.
This was the Mixed 1 team’s sixth different line-up out of the six games played so far, highlighting the team’s unfortunate lack of stability. Both Kate & Jed and Jing & Lee won a rubber each against South Leicestershire’s second pair. Claire & David were unable to win a rubber, but not through lack of effort. South Leicestershire’s experience at this level gave them the edge at crucial moments.
This leaves the last two matches of the season against Huncote Mixed 1, the first being the away fixture on 10th January.
