When Keith Pound, Michael Bowker, Richard Peperell and Keith Toovey arrived at East Dorset for a GC Level League fixture, a very strong team awaited them. Net handicaps were just 2 to HWCC's 11! So a loss by 1.5 to 5.5 was not surprising, but they were able to take away many positives. Keith P and Michael pushed a top pair in doubles to three games. Keith T continued his rapid improvement by winning a game from his much more experienced opponent. Michael took his afternoon opponent to three close games, Richard battled to a 1-1 draw (running out of time), and extraordinarily Keith P won a game 7-4 from their -4, Jonathan Powe, ranked 4 in the UK, the first game he had lost in a 27 ranking games winning streak since October! Well worth the journey.
