Ladies v Broomgrove (A) - 8/2/2013

A Friday night away fixture at Sport Hallam for Ranmoor Ladies meant the regular club night up at Tapton was very 'manly' (not my words!).

With Lesley away enjoying the sun and sea in Whitby (right, Lesley?), the Ladies team were Helen and Claire, Cindy and Cat, and Jane with Karen.

So, has Claire grown.....or is she on tiptoes?
Despite winning the home fixture at Ecclesfield 9-0, there were a few new faces in the Broomgrove line-up and we were keen not to be complacent. 

Cindy and Cat took their opening game comfortably to 8 and 11, and Helen and Claire (getting some practice in for the Combined team) took theirs to 16 and 11 and Karen and Jane took theirs to 17 and 18.

After the second round of matches, Ranmoor were 5-1 up, with Karen and Jane dropping a point against the Broomgrove first pair. 

And the final round of matches again went our way, despite the first pair pushing Cindy and Cat to three ends, to earn Ranmoor an 8-1 victory.

Up against some familiar faces in Ada and Sonja, the match was played in good spirits with some closely contested games - and excellent biscuits!

Special mention goes to Jane for leaving her sick bed to turn out for the match - and left to return to her onesie! Get well soon!
