23/06/22: The Pickwick hosted the Sharks in a top of the table clash this week, but unfortunately came out a close second. Six months ago we lost this fixture 13-2, so it was to be a good yardstick to see just how much we have improved. Every frame was fought tooth and nail with neither team giving an inch. The first set swung one way then the other with the Pickwick emerging with the first point thanks to Rafa after Grimsby and the Gypsy got frame wins. In the second set the Sharks got their teeth into us and only Gaf repelled the attack as the Sharks won it 4-1 to take an important 6-4 lead into the last set. We were up against it from here, but in true Pickwick style fought on bravely. Juggy and Bedtime won frames 12 and 14, but it wasn't quite enough as we lost frame 15 to close the match out losing 1-2 in sets and 6-9 in frames. Despite the loss lots of positives to take from this match with all six players on display getting a win, and more importantly, showing we are a match for anyone in even defeat.
