Ladies vs Notts Northern (A) - 12/10/14

For the first Ladies fixture of the season, the team set off for Worksop on Sunday night to face Notts Northern. Captain Lesley Kelly was taking a well timed holiday in Dubai, so the team consisted of Claire & Donna, Cat & Cindy and Aparna & Karen.

Claire and Donna, playing together competitively for the first time, took their first game to a third end, unfortunately losing the third to 14. They continued to put up a good fight in their second game, also taking that to 3 ends despite Donna’s cold, but again lost the third end this time to 13. Cindy and Cat also took one of their games to three ends, losing out in the end. Making her debut for Ranmoor, Aparna started a new partnership with Karen and despite some enjoyable and close games they were unable to take a point from their three matches. The remaining games were all close, with plenty going to 18 or 19 points, but the match score ended 9-0.

So a tough match to start the year off. But we have our chance to edge some of those close games in our favour, when Notts Northern come to Ecclesfield in our next fixture in a couple of weeks time!
