Woodland Opener in Sherwood

The Friday night season starts with a home tie to Woodland which will see the return of larger than life Stan Jenkins to South Park.
The league looks more interesting this year with varied opposition, sadly this includes the long trek to Barnard Castle (which we all hate), still its nice to have a new challenge in this league especially when the Darlington & District League looks a little dour this year down in the 3rd Division.
In the Sherwood League Knock-Out we make a return trip to Woodland which at their green isnt an east task however would be disappointed not to progress with our youthful team.

Sent to Dairy Lane

It has been confirmed that Sam Pattison and Scott Morland will travel away in the National Mixed Pairs to Houghton Dairy Lane. For Scott this is a venue with many mixed emotions, having many ups and down for County and also having his worst and best performances many years ago in his EBA Junior Singles Semi-Finals.

Sam and Scott lost here to the same opponents (Armstrong and Morgan) on their last National Mixed Pairs visit to Dairy Lane. They must work hard to follow up their home victory against them last season. This opposition on both occasions proved to be tough and on both home advantage was all that seperated the 2 teams.

No surprises – National Mixed Pairs

For the 3rd year running Scott Morland and Sam Pattison will face Dave Armstrong and Mrs Morgan in the National Mixed Pairs. The past 2 years has seen a win at home for both sides and this game looks to be just as tight.
Sam and Scott beat them in a run leading them to the Durham & District Mixed Pairs Final last year which ended in final disappointment.
