CCS5 v Watson's match report

Friday the 13th October

Well, well, well ....after the dizzy heights of last week it was back down to earth tonight at home against Watsonians
Mike at number 4 went on first - I am sure he must have been a premature baby for if 7pm start he always asks opponent if could start at 6.30. Waiting for time when I will arrive at 7pm and he is already beaten - well was not far off it tonight as he was spanked 3-1 in no time by young Irish whizz kid Clive so plenty time for him to check the temperature of oven for the pizzas.
Yours truly managed to retain position in team again at number 3 - must have been dish washing skills last Friday that did it. Up against Dave boy Hutton, yet again, and same result as last year in going down 3-1 but as last year put so much into game to get so little out - much like our national fitba team. On a balmy warm evening Dave had cheek to put on heater while I was looking the other way or tying my shoe laces. This was not looking good for me with Dave Allan wells Hutton scampering around court at some speed and having cheek to reach many of my drop shots and he won first game easily. But a change of tactics of refusing to get involved in long rallies and lobbing more and more a made comeback winning the second set and unfortunately at 14-14 in third he sneaked at after usual tantrum and warning from ref. I continued to wind up Dave but in an error strewn fourth game he came through 15-13 in fact think there was more strokes than winners in that game.
Thank god for Doctors - well they can be useful sometimes- as oor Adam continued his 100% record with solid 3-1 win over turncoat Gordon MacDonald with referee even foot faulting poor Adam near end of final game (well he had been warned) I even managed to witness an exquisite drop shot from Adam - now there is a rarity.
At number 2 poor Eric came up against solid performer in Andrew Constable - a squash artist if ever there was one - going down in five - good effort Eric.
Less we talk about oor pensioner Colin the better as he was swatted away 3-0 in no time in fact he spent more time talking about his Leith pub crawls 30 years ago including visits to the infamous Central Bar.
Book Club
Upstairs to food and a blether with our friendly cousins from Watsonians even wanting to have a literary discussion around the highs and lows of Scottish writers - a far cry from our usual nonsense. After expecting discussion around virtues of Walter Scott, Robert Louis Stevenson and Rabbie Burns - Dave boy Hutton insisted on exploring Edinburgh's finest Irvine Welsh from Skagboys through to Trainspotting 2 with Iain Clark able to throw in having worked in Muirhouse in the drug industry, though not a pusher he assured us. Maybe when we play them in the return we can move onto Ian Rankin and every rebus novel - enough of my favourites.

Well as there is no game next week we cannot get beat next week so enjoy your week off - may even see the return of the Vincenti man as hear he is holidaying in the sunny climes of Crete - thought that was an 18-30 holiday destination Kev and sure the locals will not have wanted their sun getting blocked out by a big fat Scottish bloke blowing out his arse!
