Gladiators A  409 v Bicester E    356  (we received 135 points)
12/20/2013
Due to illness we were only able to field 2 players so we were doomed from the outset!

Add to that Robert was delayed at work and had a bad back and  Stan took us to the wrong club it was all a bit hassled.

However Gladiators (2nd division side) were friendly and accommodating and despite us having no chance we decided to play the matches we could.

Gladiators team of Kevin Giles, Mark Penn and Dave Gardener played
Bicester''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s Robert Guanga and Stan Harding

Here is how it went:

Stan opened and lost to Kevin
8-21,14-21
157 - 42

Robert drew with Mark
11-21, 21-19
189 - 82

No player
0-42
189 - 124

Stan drew with Mark
21-19,16-21
226 - 164

All in all an heroic defeat. If had fielded 3 players I think we could have won!
