Secretary’s Shield – Somewhere Under the Rainbow (19 May 09) by Barbara Dutton
Two teams competed at Earby for the opening round of the Secretary Shield.
The home team of David Pollitt, Robin Delves, Peter Dewhurst and Andrew Webb took on the all ladies team from Huddersfield Syngenta. The doubles in the morning were played in fair weather and Pendle came out 2 -1 winners. After lunch the rain was fairly persistent making the lawns very wet for accurate play, however the home team took a 3 -1 victory in the singles and so came out overall winners 5 – 2 and progress to the next round.
With the dark skies to the right and sunshine to the left we had a lovely low rainbow as distraction.
