Lancashire Over 60s Report

Lancashire hosted the Men's over 60's Premier League stage 1 weekend over the 31st Oct and 1st Nov 2015 held at Fairways Lodge, against Cumbria, Yorkshire and Cheshire.

The first match was played against the favourites, ( Cumbria ). Neil Rodda playing 3rd string had a tough match, showing obvious signs of a busy week lost 3-0. Phill Shacklady started well against the International Ronnie Bell, being 1 game all before suffering a dead leg in an accidental collision. This restricted his movement and lost 3-1.
In the dead rubber, Geoff Willcox went head to head against the experienced Derek Leaver, just losing out 9-6 in the 5th to give Cumbria maximum points.

Cumbria went on to top the group without dropping a match.

With Lanc's No1 unable to continue the weekend and other injuries, it was left to Geoff and Neil to move up the order against Cheshire and Yorkshire, both winning a match against rated players.

The final positions were;
1) Cumbria
2) Yorkshire
3) Cheshire
4) Lancashire

A thank you to Peter Withington for organising the courts and food.
