Southsea’s six-a-side team travelled to the Ship Inn at Owslebury for their first league match of the season on Tuesday 9th April.
It had been raining for quite a while during the day, however luckily the sky dried up just before start of play. Unfortunately the terrain had been weathered into a bit of a muddy mess.
Some might have thought the terrain being slowed down from it’s normal state would have tipped things to Southsea’s advantage. However it didn’t prove the case and our two triples of Peter Missen/Andy/Maureen and Matt/Col/Peter May both ended up losing out.
So, the doubles started with Southsea needing to win all three to secure the bonus point. It was not to be, with the first two matches ending as losses. It was left up to Peter Missen and Maureen to secure a consolation point from the match.
