AT7 2 vs Hunters Cov 2

AT72 vs Hunters Cov 1

Hunters 1 assault on the third division of the Coventry league started with us deploying the big guns – a new addition to the team and two big boxes of doughnuts.
Our opponents, AT7 second team, had a few start-of-the-season team troubles, but rather than working to our advantage they’d been forced to field half their first team.
Undaunted, our first pair, Phil and Jeremy, had a rocky start against their first pair.  Once we’d worked out not to lift to the guy with the enormous smash, Hunters had put points on the board.

For the first and only time in the evening we were ahead!

The rest of the match was a tale of almost there’s and might have beens.  Following the game plan, our first pair tidied up the remaining two matches, but despite their best efforts, none of the other pairs managed to score.
Steve & Michael and Aseem & Shaeed all scored well, narrowly missing out in games lost to 17, 19 and 20.

Undoubtedly a strong opposition, and first match jitters, but we still have some kinks to work out.

We still got doughnuts, though.
