23rd Feb 2015 : Friendly match at Roehampton
A strong Barnes team turned up at local rivals Roehampton for a return fixture but was trounced 4-1 by waspish opponents. Kevin, David and John played high quality matches at 1, 2 and 3 but after lengthy sparring, only John emerged victorious. He had the satisfying sight of his opponent gasping for breath on the floor at the end. Giles was undone by superior nous and home advantage at 4, losing 3-2. Gerry at 5 crumbled to a 3-0 defeat against an even older opponent, which was at least a novelty, although depriving him of his ritual excuse.
Needless to say the Barnes team more than matched their opponents in the things that matter. After revelling in the warmed towels, luxury toiletries and a dressing room larger than our club, we were refreshed and ready for the bar afterwards, where we enjoyed Roehampton's excellent hospitality. We look forward to next season's matches against a very sociable team.
