England Seniors Match – 21/22 November 2015

On the weekend of 21st & 22nd November 2015 v Berkshire County Seniors & Region 7 Seniors Select The England Seniors squad were looking forward to playing two friendlies over the weekend. The 1st one against a Berkshire Seniors team led by Jimmy Callaghan quickly found the opposition a tough nut to crack as the England men soon took the 1st set 10-3. However, the home team fought back a shade to lose the 2nd set 8-5, but the England Seniors took the final session again 10-3 to finish up 28-11 overall. In the 2nd friendly on the Sunday versus a Region 7 select team we were expecting stronger opposition and in the 1st set it turned out to be so as the R7 guys led 8-5 but we came back strongly showing the quality that we have within the squad to lead after the 2nd set 16-10. It was the same in the final session as we finished the match with a 10-3 for a winning 26-13 scoreline. After a most enjoyable weekend by everybody, we thank the venue “Racks Pool Club “ for being so welcoming and helpful during our time there, along with Region 7 for their joint contribution in the arrangements, and not forgetting Jimmy Callaghan for taking all the photographs Les Boddy England Seniors Team Manager
