Oxon pipped by Herts in friendly

Oxfordshire hosted Hertfordshire at Oxford City and County on 30th July and for the second week running the game was curtailed to 18 ends by the weather, this time by rain. Starting slowly Oxfordshire trailed by 6 shots after 10 ends and were 9 behind after 15.  By close of play the deficit was down to 3 shots and Oxfordshire had gained the upper hand only for the rain to halt proceedings.

The highlight of the after-game meal was the celebration of Alan Ley’s 900th game for Oxfordshire (see separate tribute) as well as the 100th game for City and Count’s Vice President Chris Lewis and a colts badge for South Oxford’s David Tidball
