Surrey v Sussex Match Report

Sunday 30th April saw Sussex Youth away to Surrey Youth for our penultimate game of the season hoping to keep our 100% record in tact. To get us on our way was Jack Croft fresh from his win from the last game raced in to a 2-0 lead but was pegged back to 2-2 but kept his nerve and clinched the win with a 16-25. Next up was Dan Perry who had a potential banana skin game but done a solid professional job winning 3-0 with a 17-89. Freddie Jackson sadly couldn't keep the unbeaten start going, going down 3-1 with a 16-74. Tavis Dudeney got us back to winning ways with a 3-0, 17-68 win. So with one more win needed to keep the 100% record going till the last game and possibly giving us the under 18 championship up step Zach Luke and after 4 tense legs put in a brilliant 5th leg gaining him the Performance Of The Day award and a 3-2 victory with a 17-15. So with the win it was time to relax you would think, not when it's Tyler Radlett v Lewis Gurney you can't and although the score line suggested a one sided game it couldn't be further from the truth. As normal it was a good battle which Tyler won 3-0 his average was 21-78 and Lewis with a 21-30. Last but not least Alex Gurr who won 3-0 with a MOM 21-78.

Next up was the Girls with PJ Langridge first on who put in a good performance but her opposite number was too strong with her finishing and sadly PJ went down 2-0 with a respectable 13-80. Next was Jenny Lovegrove who again put in a shift but didn't quite get over the line losing 2-1 with a 9-91. Finals once again it was Becky King doing a captains job winning 2-0 with LOM 17.28.

So with the Girls losing 2-1 it was the turn of the U21 Men to try and keep there 100% record going and the Team needing 2 more wins to keep the Team 100% record going do no pressure on Dennis Bowyer to kick us off. Well since we put him up from U 18s to U 21s he certainly has enjoyed it and once again put in a MOM 3-0 with a 22-77, so with one more win needed for the team result up stepped Connor Levett who duly obliged winning 3-0 with a 21-17. So with the team result in the bag it was now full steam ahead to secure the section victory and the last remaining 100% record to defend so next up was George Penning who wasn't firing on all cylinders and went down 3-1 16-28. Unfortunately the same could be said about Connor Scutt who was Harry Jacksons opponent who playing his last game for Surrey U 21s won 3-0 with a 28-90, Harry played well his average was 23.88 but I think even a lot of our seniors would have ended up with the same result. Last game up was Jake Emery who put played well dug in but sadly lost 3-2?with a 18-22.

Despite the set back I'm sure the championship is secure but we won't be taking anything for granted going into our final game of the season at home to Hampshire especially after witnessing what Sussex Seniors did to Merseyside.  In case you don't know, Merseyside visited Clubcue for the final game of the season celebrating promotion to Div 2 as they had a 15 point lead over Sussex who were in third and needing a big win to over take them for second. Come Sunday afternoon it was Sussex celebrating promotion.
