Veterans continue winning ways

Following their 12-0 win at the Isle of Wight, the over 60 veterans team continued their success with a 11-1 win against Dorset at St. Austell on 6th December. Team captain Brian Hannibal decided to field an identical team as previous.

The mens pairings of Brian and Phil had an exciting three ender against the Dorset first pair, where the dynamic Brian showed that he hasn't lost any speed and agility to secure victory. Mike, partnered with Tony also won both their doubles, with one match going to three ends.

The ladies also encountered close games, but unfortunately Pat and Celia just lost to the Dorset first pair. Vera playing alongside Chris Marr comfortably won both of their matches.

Fortunately Cornwall took all four of the mixed, which means that they are now 3rd in the league with games in hand.

The team now take a rest over the Christmas until January 3rd, when the annual County Veterans Tournament will be held at St. Austell. Entry forms are available to download from the download section to the right on this page, or from Pat Edwards on 01726 65015.
