Lymm vs Knutsford
The undefeated and table topping Lymm played host to a very good Knutsford side this evening.
First on court were the number 3 string players. Captain Peter set the example as usual with a composed and controlled performance working his opponent from corner to corner. He ran out a 3-0 winner.
Next on was Tim playing at number 2. Tim raced to an 8-1 lead clearly inspired by our special guest, the legend that is Mr Tod Bulmer! However disaster struck and Tim went over on his ankle with a suspected torn ligament. He had to concede the game and make do with Lymm Rugby’s physio!
With the match all square at 1-1 it was time for the Godfather of Lymm to take to centre court. Epic Rog once again thrilled a packed balcony running out a 3-1 winner. He later revealed how he keeps losing his shirts after matches! This is the problem you have when you are a God amongst men and fans want a piece of memorabilia!
With Lymm leading 2-1 Matt ‘The G-Man’ Gower had the opportunity to win the match for us. This was not an opportunity he was going to miss. His sensational form continued as he battered his opponent 3-0. He could be heard demanding a move up the order! Also for all those concerned there were no issues tonight with finding his car at the end of the night!
The match was already won when the top of the order players went on court. Darren was in no mood to repeat last week’s struggle and he set about taking his opponent apart in a 3-0 demolition!
This meant Lymm won 4-1 and remain at the top of the league. A curry and a pint in the bar followed with the very sociable Knutsford team.
Next week will be a test as Tim is injured, Roger is away and Darren is visiting the Pope! Prayers may be needed!? Come back Steve all is forgiven!
