29th Oct 2015 : Friendly against Richmond
Barnes took on a testing Richmond side and was thus proven, narrowly losing 3-2, with all of the team winning at least one game bar their captain, yes, yours truly, the author! Notable performances from Will Cunliffe with an exemplary 3-0 victory at number 2 in the pecking order and Alistair Gratrex also winning by the same score line at number 5. Paul Williams and Gareth Broughall put in strong performances and demonstrated their usual tenacity and determination, but unfortunately succumbed to 3-1 losses. David Crane, yours truly, faced a Spanish Matador or Picador rather, at number 1, managing to yield a 7-3 lead in the second game and also losing the third game from a 7-1 deficit, having levelled at 7-7, but faced a better player.
