Masters 50s and 55s 2nd teams defeated

Nott's over 50s and 55s 2nd teams both entertained Lancashire and Leicestershire respectively on Sunday 17th November at Chilwell Olympia.

The 50s team now playing this season in the North division, were up against unbeaten Lancashire. Although the Nott's side lost 9-3 a number of scores were so close - John Fletcher and Julian Dumelow losing a Men's by 20-22 & 20-22, Julian and Jane Smith losing their Mixed by 21-23 & 20-22, Jane Smith & Helen Clark losing in three sets after winning their first end 21-17 then losing 20-22 in the second. Debutants Warwick Mooney and Helen Clarke taking their Mixed to a deciding set.
All in all a good performance by the Nott's side who didn't allow Lancashire to have it all their own way. The score line certainly not reflecting how close the match was.
