Yorkshire Invitation team win Friendly against Southampton and District
Friendly between a Yorkshire invitation team & Southampton and District
On 10th June a friendly took place between a Yorkshire invitation team and Southampton and District. The Southampton team comprised of the Corwen winning pair, 2 of the strongest players from Kent and several strong Southampton players. I am pleased to say that the Yorkshire team won by 3 matches to one.
In the first match Nick Woolven and Mike Ferguson were on fire and partnering Mike Jackson and John Hayton, winning by 73-26.
The second match probably saw some of the best bridge from both teams and Southampton won this by 58-38. The Yorkshire team was Alan Hayward and Alan Jarvis partnering Robin Jepson and Alan Brosgill.
The third match saw Keith Joules and David Beck partnering Ian Johns and John O’Sullivan winning by 49 -24, with some good contracts being bid and made.
The final match saw Chris and Pauline Fort partnering Stephen and Cheryl Brown who had a storming victory of 41-9 bidding and making some good contracts missed in other matches.
The match was played in a friendly manner and competitive spirit and the banter afterwards on the zoom meeting was lively.
