26th Oct 2017: Barnes v Colets away

The inaugural Barnes v Colets fixture was a testing encounter to say the least, with Barnes taking on a formidable opposition and getting bested 4-1.
David Crane (yours truly) was beaten 3-0 by his Winter leagues Colets team mate (I did the right thing and played for my favourite club Barnes for this fixture) at first string. The first two games respectable but not really a danger of winning and the third a closer affair losing 15-13.
Kevin Lim was outplayed at second string losing 3-0 also but in fairness couldn't get into a good rhythm, though the opponent made few errors.
The third and fourth string matches, comprising John Richardson and Euan Macfarlane, respectively, were far more competitive and entertaining affairs. John's match was the show match where there was a full gallery of spectators came back from 2-1 deficit to a very fit and wily opponent only to lose 3-2 in a very hard fought and thrilling match of glorious showcase boasts (a la cocked leg)and trick shots.
Euan recovered from being 2-0 down in two very close games against a similar tenacious and fit opponent to win 3-2. A tremendous display of grit and steadfast will to win. This was to be the only victory of the tie as James Honeyfield at fifth string played with some flair and nice drives but ultimately this was in vain as he lost 3-0 to his cap bearing adversary.
So in summary, Barnes to 4-1, to a stronger side (worth mentioning the top three are fourth/ fifth Surrey league players so always was going to be tough).
The Indian curry reward after with some pints of ale were welcome respite and well received and devoured by all (apart from one Colets player who can't eat Indian food....).
Hopefully a better result for the return leg in April by these Barnes players at home.
Well played all and a thoroughly enjoyable tie.
