With their Captain still sidelined, the 60's went to Clevedon on Sunday 14th to play Avon 1st who were lying equal second to Cornwall in the league.
This was a crucial match to win in order to maintain this position. Without Brian, Bill Edgar again stepped into the side which was brilliant. Cornwall took three of the mens doubles, while the ladies matches were halved two a piece.
This meant that Cornwall needed two of the mixed to win the match. Unfortunately Chris and Phil lost theirs to England's Mike Cox, Celia and Bill just lost out in a three ender, Vera and Mike won theirs, so it was up to Pat and Tony. They won their first end, lost the second and were 18-13 down in the third but miraculously came back to win 23-21.
So Cornwall eventually won 7-5. A great achievement. Sunday 21st sees them entertain Avon 2 at St. Austell, by when it is hoped that Brian will have returned to full fitness and back in the side.
