Match drawn vs PSOB

An enjoyable match took place at Reeds School in Cobham.

PSOB, as usual, turned out an excellent first pair - quicker, fitter, younger (need we say more?) that proved impossible to beat on the day. However, a great comeback by Mike Dawe and Andrew Soul enabled the Club to attain an honourable last-rubber win to leave the match result at 2-2.
