Holm View Mixed C v Cardiff A 26/01/2015

The mixed C team made three changes in personnel from the last match which meant there was another shuffle of the pairs. David having returned from his trip to France was paired with Jenny, the badminton player formally known as Steff was reunited after a long absence with Gemma and Mike teamed up with Jessica.

Cardiff also made some sweeping changes from the team beaten at Holm View with four new players drafted in this was a much stronger team!

The first round of rubbers saw Holm View go 2-0 down! Not the start they wanted. However, Jenny and David battled hard to win their rubber and brought the match back to 2-1.

The second round of rubbers saw a bit of a fight back with Gemma and Steff working hard to win their rubber. However, it was not going to be Jessica and Mikes night with little going their way they suffered a crushing defeat and with Jenny and David also losing it was now 4-2 and things looked bleak going in to the final round of rubbers.

Jessica and Mike put up a brave fight against the Cardiff 1st pair but were no match for them and the match result was sealed at 5-2. With Gemma and Steff also losing their rubber it was then 6-2. However, Jenny and David were having a another tough match on the other side of the hall and eventually came out worthy winners, ending the match 6-3 to Cardiff.

A few of the team consoled themselves over a drink while some made the long and winding journey home. You know who you are!!!

The team now look forward to another match the tonight against Bridgend Phoenix when no doubt there will be another new line up! This team is definitely taking squad rotation to the limit!
